22 December 2011
New Sydney Dragway Board Elected
Following the resignations on 19/12/2011 by the Chairman Sam Sofi, Honarary Treasure Pieter Versluis and Director Santo Rapisarda a meeting was held 21/12/2011 with a unanimous vote from the members present to continue forward with the AGM.
Following the AGM we can confirm the new Board consists of:
Chairman: Stephen Dupond
Vice Chairman: Frank Oliveri
Honorary Treasurer: John Culmone
Directors: Jeff Wilson, Norm McCormack, Graeme Cowin, Joseph Rodriquez.
Stephen Dupond said “I am confident a positive road is set to keep the momentum moving forward at Sydney Dragway which will allow the venue to keep developing its financial framework into a strong foundation that will provide us with a secure future for drag racing in NSW and nationally.”
Sydney Dragway plans to continue its 2011-12 calendar as outlined. Currently ANDRA is undertaking a review of the future development of the sport, it is believed that the analysis of this will occur quickly to enable the Board to plan the future racing calendar and beyond. Further details are forthcoming once this process has concluded.
The operational challenges at the venue will require ongoing involvement from the staff, Board and SD members.
The incumbent board would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Sam Sofi, Pieter Versluis and Santo Rapisarda for their dedicated commitment to the Sydney Dragway facility.
We thank you all for your continued support and trust you will continue to work with us to ensure the venue remains the "place to drag race".
