Sunraysia 600 Scrutiny Update
Exciting news today from the Sunraysia Motor Sports Club with the announcement that Scrutiny and the public display for the Sunraysia 600 will be held at Nowingi Place, Mildura’s premier riverfront community events and entertainment precinct.
“We have received the final confirmations today for Nowingi Place, which is great news for the event and the Australian Off Road Championship. The Mildura Rural City Council have played a big part in making this happen; so it’s full steam ahead for the next 30 days” explained Jason Hannig, Club President.
Nowingi Place is located along Hugh King Drive on Mildura's riverfront, with its facilities focussed on community events. The area includes a playground, BBQ facilities, public toilets, bike paths, and its newest feature, a water park/play area for children. The water play area has spurts and spouts of water, shallow running water and varying textures underfoot for children to walk on. In the water there a wheels and things to push, pull, lift and turn and plenty of room to splash around.
“We’re trailing a new method for scrutiny this year. We’re expecting a large number of spectators and felt it would be a better experience if all the cars were in place before the spectators started to arrive. We’re asking teams for the assistance and patience with this new concept.”
Mildura is an extremely busy place over the Easter holiday weekend with one of the draw cards, the Power Sports Good Friday Show ‘n’ Shine in the city hub at the Langtree Mall, attracting a crowd of over 15,000. The Sunraysia 600 committee will be out in force generating interest in the event with a vehicle display and giveaways.
Track marking of the 100km course through Keera Station starts this weekend and with competitor list increasing daily, the opening round of the CAMS Australian Off Road Championship and the second round of the Victorian Off Road Championship should be a ‘cracker’ of an event.
