Sprint is event of the year

From page 1

The inaugural Teakle Auto Sprint has been announced as Port Lincoln City Council’s Community Event of the Year.

The two-day racing event saw the streets of the Port Lincoln central business district closed off and turned into at race track.

Drivers from all over the country participated and the event was attended by more than 9000 people.

About 85 per cent of the money raised by sponsorship and ticket sales was spent locally and local groups who were engaged to sell food or man spectator gates earned more $40,000 for their organisations.
