DSC_1761The WSS (World Series Sprintcars) business moguls don’t muck around.

With the WSS Grand Finale winding up Saturday night at Perth Motorplex and James McFadden being crowned the Series Champion, it was time to draw the Championship to a final conclusion.

Last night (Sunday 26th Feb) saw the annual WSS Presentation dinner being played out at the Claremont Showgrounds in Western Australia.

In fact it was the 30th Anniversary Dinner and a large contingent of big names gathered to catch up, swap stories, have a feed and receive awards.

Its hard to believe, but WSS started way back in 1987 and George Tatnell was the inaugural champion that season.

Our regular photographer Peter Roebuck was lucky enough to secure a special invite and he took a truckload of photos for us to view.

Here’s the night though Peter’s lens:
