Spring rac­ing for our area each year


YOU could al­most call the next cou­ple of weeks our own ‘Spring Car­ni­val’ with suc­ces­sive cup meet­ings in War­wick, Stan­thorpe and Clifton.

Af­ter the War­wick meet­ing to­day, then it is the Stan­thorpe Cup a week from to­day and the Clifton Cup in a fort­night.

Sprint meet

THE Downs Mo­tor­sport Club is head­ing to Mor­gan Park Race­way this week­end for its sprint meet­ing.

Over the years, the club has or­gan­ised the an­nual Gat­ton Sprints but this year the sprint bit has been moved to Mor­gan Park. The club has al­ready booked in for next year in War­wick. Now they are run­ning a street drift meet­ing at Gat­ton each March.

To­day the 97 nom­i­nated driv­ers will be at Mor­gan Park be­tween noon and 4pm for prac­tice and then rac­ing to­mor­row will be from 8am-4.30pm.

Polocrosse win

THERE were eight play­ers from the South­ern Downs in win­ning teams at the na­tion­als in polocrosse.

An­other mul­ti­ple tro­phy win­ner in ju­nior mixed was Oliver Green­tree, from the Tam­worth area.

He has some fam­ily in the Rodgers Creek area, west of War­wick, who watched his progress closely at the na­tion­als.
