VROOMMM! …..Sandown 500

St Helena students visited the Sandown 500 practice day, in November 2019.  The Supercars Championship event was organised as a “Students On Track” excursion.  Students had the opportunity to see V8 Supercars race preparation, lap times and pit crews hard at work down the paddock/pitlane.  Many classic cars were on display, as were race cars of the yesteryear…including Peter Brock Holden Toranas/Commodores and Ford Falcons of DJR (Dick Johnson) & Ozemail Racing Teams (Brad Jones).

Despite the weather, St Helena students had an exciting day with some lucky enough to take a selfie or collect a autograph with their driving heroes.

What a great day and experience for all…looking forward to visiting Sandown again in 2020.
