Race on for top spots at the Cup

OCTOBER 8 has been circled in red marker on all social calendars and now it's time to secure your ticket.

The highly anticipated Warwick Cup is less than three weeks away and race-goers are being urged to secure their piece of the action.

Tickets under the stylish trackside marquee are going quickly, with organiser Warwick Fraser saying he has seen really strong interest in the event.

"This year the marquee will be home to 800 people and we have already had a heap of interest - I think I can safely say around half of the tickets have been allocated," he said.

Mr Fraser said the marquee is just a stone's throw from the racing action and will be "the hub of all the fun on cup day".

"It is where Fashions on the Field takes place and there will be bookies and screens with interstate racing, all just metres from the racing" he said.

Warwick Cup is known as a great place to catch up with old friends, with former Warwick-ites often flocking to their old homes to enjoy the day of racing.

And this year will be no exception.

Mr Fraser said the Warwick State High School class of 1991 will hold its 20-yer reunion on the day and many other people are planning to arrive in the city for the event.

"It's a really good mix of locals and people from out of town and we have had people from Brisbane, Toowoomba and Goondiwindi book tables," he said.

Tickets under the trackside marquee must be booked in a minimum group of 10 and Mr Fraser said he had seen workmates and friends join together to plan their big day.

Purchasing tickets is simple this year, with an online option offered.

People who purchase tickets online also have the opportunity to snag themselves a two-night stay at Spicer's Retreat, plus expenses, valued at more than $2000.

Tickets for the trackside marquee are available from $35 and include access to bookmakers and bars.

Booking a table in the gold package will cost $75 a person and includes a buffet lunch and will also provide easy access to bookmakers and bars.
