Albany Speedway Club has again welcomed the fantastic support of the City of Albany, which is the major partner for the upcoming World Series Sprintcar event.
Albany’s Attwell Park venue will host round 10 of the national speedway series on Friday night, February 19, which boasts a number of interstate competitors and also one American driver.
The event comes at a significant cost to Albany Speedway Club but attracts visiting drivers and spectators from across WA and Australia which provides a boost to local businesses and tourism.
The City of Albany have been loyal supporters of Albany Speedway Club for many years, helping the club become one of the best regional speedway venues in WA.
That partnership continued when the City of Albany agreed to provide major financial assistance to Albany Speedway Club with a $15,000 grant through its 2016 Regional Events Sponsorship Program to help run the World Series Sprintcars.
Albany Speedway Club committee member Kevin Theyer said the City of Albany continued to support local speedway in any way possible.
“The City of Albany have been massive supporters of Albany Speedway Club for many years now and this announcement continues to show this,” Mr Theyer said.
“We have a long and successful partnership and without the City of Albany’s assistance we wouldn’t be where we are today.
“Whenever we come to them about another major event that we are planning, the City of Albany always support us in any way they can.
“We again thank them for their support with World Series Sprintcars, we look forward to the partnership continuing and we are very keen to host a highly successful event.”
Albany Speedway Club continues to grow in stature and the club is buoyed by this announcement ahead of their biggest meeting of the 2015-16 season.
