CRAIG Lowndes fans will have the chance to get up close and personal with the three-time Bathurst winner on Friday at the Cairns Showgrounds.
Lowndes is in Cairns for the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service Road Crash Rescue Challenge and Road Safety Expo in the Fred Moule Pavilion at the Cairns Showgrounds. Lowndes will be speaking in support of the QFRS Roads Attitudes and Action Planning program that is delivered to year 12 students statewide. He also will be on hand to assist the students who will be operating driving simulators during the event.
The expo is open from 9am to 4.30pm Friday and Saturday with free admission. It includes displays by Police, Ambulance, Queensland Transport, Main Roads, Cairns Regional Council, Q Rail, Q Health, JCU, CARZ Q, Cairns Rotary, Emergency Management as well as Fire and Rescue.
Sponsors Ford and Holden provide new cars for crushing in the Road Crash Rescue Challenge so Fire and Rescue teams from throughout the State can test their skills and equipment relevant to advances in new vehicle technology, such as air bags and reinforcing features.
