Warwick District Sporting Car Club marks 60 years

A CROWD of 110 celebrated 60 years of the Warwick District Sporting Car Club on Saturday night at Morgan Park Raceway.

The dinner was held in a new shed, build south of the pit area, which houses club machinery and equipment.

Club president Bill Campbell said the facility was decked out in the club colours of blue and silver.

"Andy McElrea from McElrea Racing was guest speaker and spoke about how he started at grassroots level to his current status as a team owner," Campbell said.

"Fred Berge was one of the inaugural members and was the oldest member at the dinner. He is one of the earliest life members of the club."

Motor racing drivers and fans from as far away as the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, Brisbane and the Northern Rivers of New South Wales were at the dinner.

The next meeting at the raceway will be on October 18-19 when the Queensland Super Sprint State Championships are held.

Campbell said he expected up to 100 drivers for the championships.
