Community bands together to better their club
MOTOR SPORT: There is set to be more competition at Proston Car Rally Club's next event, with the club finishing the extension to their burnout pad.
The extension brings the burnout pad into line with the Confederation of Australian Motorsport specifications, which is the body the club races under.
Club president Barry Taylor said the success of the project was a community effort.
"There are so many people that we need to thank," he said.
Taylor said the club was grateful to Bryan Zelinski from BZE Murgon for donating the concrete and Brian Roon, who owns the land for allowing the club to do the extension.
He also thanked Dan Johanson and Scott Gray for coming in and laying and screeding the concrete, Jayme and Billey Taylor and the Bleys, Hazelgrove, Mooney and Brooke families for their help preparing the area.
The club is looking forward to putting the extension to good use.
"Our hope now is to get the word out there that we do have a burnout pad in the South Burnett area and hold them four times a year," Taylor said.
"It is quite easy to get involved. All you need is a CAMS licence, club membership (we run our event as multi-club) and your nomination money."
The opening ceremony of the extension will be at the club's next rally on August 4 at 5.30pm.
The club would like to thank Dan Oberle for transport, and Aimee Davies and Matt Persal for all the help they have given to the burnouts.
