Following the unfortunate vandalism of Waikerie’s Sunline Speedway in South Australia earlier this year, Totally Speedway decided to launch an initiative to raise funds to give back to the track, ultimately raising $1,000.
With vandals breaking into the venue and causing a significant amount of damage to equipment and amenities, the track’s owners were left to deal with the clean-up, along with a substantial repair bill.
Recognising an opportunity to help, Totally Speedway founder Daniel Powell quickly began devising a plan to raise the much-needed funds for Sunline Speedway, utilising his large online presence to put the call out to speedway supporters.
Creating a GoFundMe page to allow supporters to donate, Powell gave his followers added incentive to get behind Sunline Speedway, committing to a physical challenge that would see him run 30 laps (13.8 kilometres) non-stop of Sydney's Valvoline Raceway (NSW) on foot; an event that would be documented on the Totally Speedway social media pages.
It was a strategy that well and truly paid off, with Totally Speedway raising a total of $1,000, which was donated in full to Sunline Speedway in order to alleviate the financial impact that was caused by the vandalism.
Sunline Speedway’s 2018-19 season gets underway next month on the Saturday night of December 8 with the program being headlined by the South Australian Titles for 360 Sprintcars and Junior Sedans.
