Hot off the presses ! Allan Moffat returns to Waterford Hills Sunday July 8th

Post by Joel Hershoren » Wed Jun 13, 2018 9:44 am

Good day all. This has been on a long simmer ( since last year ) and all the gears finally fell into place a day ago.
Allan wished to see the states one more time, and visiting here was a primary goal.
His biggest desire is to show his son around, AND, Honor the memory of the late Peter Quenet.
Peter was instrumental in launching Allan's racing career
The original hope was to be here on a race weekend, but travel itinerary does not allow for it.
We are quickly working to create an event. Here are the initial plans.

We have secured the clubhouse from 2 pm to 6 pm.
Note there is a breakfast event ( not ours ) until 1 pm, so we cannot access until the clubhouse until 2 at the soonest.
So, we will start with a casual car show in the paddock at noon.
The clubhouse gathering will also be casual.
There will be food provided by the parent club. Cost is $15.00 .
Fried Chicken, Ham. Mashed Spuds, Veggie, Garden Salad , Coffee, Fountain pop all included.
Cash bar.
IF there are net proceeds, they will go towards the Track paving Fund.

We are working on setting up the sign up / payment end of things, we will post when ready.

For those of you not aware of Allan,
He started out at Waterford Hills back in the mid sixties in a Lotus Cortina.
'He later moved to Australia , and had a legendary career in Aussie Touring Cars, Lemans, etc.
My bio of him does little justice, You can look online to become better informed.
To say his popularity down under rivals any american racer in the states in not an understatement ( think Petty, Earnhardt , Unsers, Foyt, you get the idea )
And it all started here.

Getting the ball rolling . Updates to follow.

DRAT, that date falls right on the GingerMan Majors race ;-(

Brian,
The timeline became an instant on switch, and this was our only choice. For certain many have already lined out their calendar and we wish them the best July / August.
We can have 25 or 250, and it will be what it is.
