Last night (Fri Dec 28) Sydney Speedway hosted a Fan Appreciation function at the Mecure Hotel in Parramatta.

The night drew bucket loads of faithful fans, all hoping for the chance to meet their idols in the flesh. There were many highlights – the standouts being the appearance of American Star Joey Saldana, World of Outlaws commentator Johnny Gibson and Chris Holder – the current World Speedway Grand Prix Champion (Bikes)

A large contingent of local Sprintcar Drivers was also on hand to meet, greet and sign autographs. A sausage sizzle was cooked up and all proceeds went to the Westmead Children’s Hospital.

Here are a couple of photos from Gary Reid of the night.
