Inaugural Mt Alma Mile a success
- 24th April 2009, 2:38pm
The inaugural asp Mount Alma Mile attracted over 500 spectators to witness this new event on the motorsport calendar.
Organised by the Southern Districts Car Club (SDCC) with 100% volunteer effort, the Clerk of the Course, Michael Clements, praised the organizing committee, the sponsor, the competitors, the City of Victor Harbor Council and the spectators for their participation.
â€œIt is a great feeling when all the components of a new event come together and the community, and especially Cure4CF, are the beneficiaries. Our sponsor, Application Service Provider â€“ asp - gave marketing, computing and graphic design services and the principals and staff of the company threw themselves behind the event with great enthusiasm.â€
â€œWhen the Southern Districts Car Club first proposed the Mount Alma Mile we were really impressed with the instant acceptance â€“ the City of Victor Harbor Council was great, and what really made an impact was the amount of applications we received from competitors within ten days of announcing the event.â€
â€œBefore we knew it we had a full complement of competitors and the volunteer forces that run the Southern Districts Car Club set to work to make the event the great one that it was.â€
â€œThe Fleurieu Peninsula can proudly boast that it can â€˜doâ€™ an event, provide great entertainment close to Adelaide, engage the local residents and do it all without being a burden on the taxpayers.â€
â€œThank you to everyone who helped, participated and attended.â€
NB: Cure4CF raised almost $4,000 over the weekend from their BBQ, spectator donations, competitor donations and the revenue from the campsite area.
