Gold Coast 2018 Racing Industry Awards

Last Wednesday night the 2018 Gold Coast Racing Industry Awards were held in the Corporate Suites. The sold-out event was a huge success, kicking the night off with our famous ‘Black Carpet’ Lady and our MC was the lovely Elly Wicks. The air was full of anticipation throughout the night to hear the award winners.  The night featured a special guest Q&A with Wayne Hawkes from Hawkes Racing and it was great to hear his views on the club! It was a great night had by all and we look forward to the next racing season ahead for 2018/2019! To view the photos from the night click here.
