Spring racing for our area each year

Horse Power with Gerard Walsh

YOU could almost call the next couple of weeks our own 'Spring Carnival' with successive cup meetings in Warwick, Stanthorpe and Clifton.

After the Warwick meeting this Saturday, then it is the Stanthorpe Cup a week from this Saturday and the Clifton Cup in a fortnight.

Sprint meet

THE Downs Motorsport Club is heading to Morgan Park Raceway this weekend for its sprint meeting.

Over the years, the club has organised the annual Gatton Sprints but this year the sprint bit has been moved to Morgan Park. The club has already booked in for next year in Warwick. Now they are running a street drift meeting at Gatton each March.

This Saturday, the 97 nominated drivers will be at Morgan Park between noon and 4pm for practice and then racing Sunday will be from 8am-4.30pm.

Polocrosse win

THERE were eight players from the Southern Downs in winning teams at the nationals in polocrosse.

Another multiple trophy winner in junior mixed was Oliver Greentree, from the Tamworth area.

He has some family in the Rodgers Creek area, west of Warwick, who watched his progress closely at the nationals.
