Default WINNERS of V8 Race Experience!

BATHURST EXPERIENCE (By just attending the 2012 AFF Salvo's Christmas Toy Run):

Winner is: TB Confirmed - draw has been made but we need to confirm that the winner is eligible and can attend on that day.


VIC Competition Winner: Matwilliams91

ACT/NSW Comp Winner: killerjoolz

SA Comp Winner: mattkay

WA Comp Winner: XWdarcy


We would like to congratulate the winners and also thank V8 Race for generously donating such fabulous prizes. They do a terrific job of giving people an opportunity to drive an exciting V8 and if you are struggling to find a Christmas Present for a loved one, seriously consider this as an option. I got one myself last year and it was the best thing I have done for some time. Still smiling from the experience.

Thanks again to all that participated in the Christmas Toy Run (for the Bathurst Experience) and the State Competitions.

So if you want to beat em, ya gotta join em, and being manual makes the time even more credible.

Thanks so much to V8 race for providing this opportunity for these people to drive their cars!
Although my name is on the winners list, I have entered my father into the competition, and he won!
He has suffered sickness for years now, but throughout his sickness has kept pushing on, working hard both at work and at home to provide for his wife, and 3 lucky kids.

We attend V8 supercar events around Australia each year, and he has always said "I'd love to drive one", well thanks to V8 race he finally can. I know this will bring a well deserved smile to his face, and my families as well.

I will definitely be recommending V8 race to my colleagues, friends and family for providing such an amazing gift.

Thank you once again, I will be sure to post how the day goes!

Smile Re: WINNERS of V8 Race Experience!

WOW, to see that I had won A prize was something in its own right, But to be part of a national competition and be selected for SA, even bigger WOW.
Biggest WoW ever is that it involves a V8 motor car, on a race track.

Thanks so much Ford Forums for this opportunity from SA, I feel very privileged. I have heard of the experience and will add to the good word of mouth as of tomorrow at work, after all my family and friends hear 1st. Thankyou V8 Race experience!

I have always loved my FORDS, always, never backing down when the going gets tough,
I appreciate so much the support that has come from Pedders suspension, (Marion SA) Daniel you are a legend. IMPCO cos I love my gas, Ian D you are well versed in your technical knowledge and a credit to careful consideration.
The LPG forum, LTD 351 thanks for paving the way. Cleveland forum, thanks for your encouragement, as I could have given up.
My XE Fairmont just keeps getting better slowly and surely.

V8 Race experience will only inspire me further,
Looking forward to learning more about our hobby that keeps it real!
Kindest Regards
Matt

Can now Officially announce the Winner of the Bathurst V8 Experience with V8 Race is STAGG from Victoria.
He was the 3rd in the draw as the first 2 drawn were ineligible as they did not participate in the Toy Cruise - (SA member had been drawn 1st and NSW Member 2nd).

Congratulations and hope you enjoy your day. We will perhaps see you there at the 12 hour Race at Bathurst which this coincides with.

Thank you to all the Members and their Families and Friends who participated in this Annual Charity Cruise and for donating so generously at a time when things are a little tough in Australia. Shows true Aussie Spirit!

Gaela

SO Happy that I won this prize!

I am absolutely ecstatic that my first proper racing experience will be on the mountain! Already looking at accommodation and asking around to bring some mates to get some photos. Will definitely give it my all on the mountain

Also, thank you so much to AFF for coaxing me out of my garage to the Christmas Charity Cruise, to head down to Geelong and make plenty of new friends.

Looking forward to February next year! Bring it on!!

Just want to thank AFF and V8 Race for selecting me as the WA winner. Very generous prize for very little outlay (none!) Can't wait to give a V8 with a bit more punch and poise than my old girl a fang around a race circuit. Best early Christmas present ever!!
