State Championships – a reminder to get prepped for these dates if you’re planning to contest the KA NSW or QLD State Championships:
Top Job Change – The Motorsport Australia Board has elected Andrew Fraser to be the organisation’s President from 1 January 2021. This follows the announcement that current President Andrew Papadopoulos will retire, effective 31 December 2020. Fraser has been a lifelong motorsport fan and was appointed to the Motorsport Australia Board in 2019.
“I’m honoured to have the unanimous support of Motorsport Australia to serve as President and Chair,” Fraser said in a statement. “I am committed to growing our grassroots events. Now is the time to focus on our own backyard to ensure we have the fundamentals in place for the future.” Motorsport Australia’s next Board election is scheduled for October 2021.
