Royal Automobile Club of Australia - Motoring Group Annual Dinner
The Annual Motoring Dinner recognises the pursuit of excellence and significant contributions to the motor car, the automotive industry and motor sport.
This year the Annual Motoring Dinner will be “future forward" rather than celebrating past wins and events. The theme for this year’s dinner is “Balancing The Grid”, Women in Motorsport, a Positive Future. We will be focusing on why women in motorsport is an important part of the future of the sport and we will be welcoming two young drivers to talk about their careers and how they will win in a male dominated sport. Emily Duggan who races in the Super 3 and Toyota GT86 championships, and Chelsea Angelo who races in the inaugural TCR Australia championship, will be joining us for an inspirational discussion.
Women have been racing cars for over 100 years at all levels including in Formula 1, Le Mans 24 Hour race and in the US, the Indy Racing League. The RACA recognises Australia has female champions in many sports however the country lacks the support and commitment to our female drivers. The Motoring Dinner is a perfect opportunity to bring along a relative (sister, daughter, niece, grand-daughter) who wants to race however is not sure about getting started. Our guests of honour will give guidance, motivation and advice to others who wish to get involved in motorsport.
In addition, we will be celebrating the centenary of Bentley, a marque rich with motorsport success at the highest levels and has a heritage represented by model names such as Mulsanne, Arnage, Hunaudières and Brooklands to name a few. As per the tradition of the Annual Motoring Dinner, the club will also be presenting the RACA Motoring Trophies for 2018 to the Historic Sports and Racing Car Association (HSRCA).
The Club welcomes all members and guests to this important event.
