Willowbank Raceway is pleased to confirm that the 2013 FUCHS Winternationals has been listed as a finalist in the upcoming Ipswich Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Business Awards.

The Awards, supported by The QT and the Chamber’s Award Partners, will be presented at a black tie gala event to be held on 1 November 2013 at the Ipswich Civic Centre.

The largest championship drag racing event held outside of North America, the FUCHS Winternationals is one of three finalists for the Ipswich Turf Club Tourism/Event of the Year Award.

Willowbank Raceway President Tony Wedlock said the nomination was an honour for Queensland’s premier drag racing facility.

“Everyone at Willowbank Raceway is certainly honoured to be recognised by the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business Awards,” said Wedlock.

“To be a finalist in the prestigious Ipswich Turf Club Tourism/Event of the Year award is certainly a great privilege and we are very excited to hear the outcome at the gala awards on 1 November 2013.

“No matter what the outcome, I must take this opportunity to send my sincere thanks on behalf of the Willowbank Raceway Management Committee to our staff, officials, racers, spectators, suppliers, sponsors and everyone else involved in the FUCHS Winternationals.

“Without your dedication and support, this great event would not be all that it is, and this nomination is a true testament to your efforts.”

Willowbank Raceway’s FUCHS Winternationals are held annually across the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June. In 2014, the event will be held across Friday 6 June to Monday (public holiday) 9 June. For full information, visit www.willowbankraceway.com.au
