Paul Woodward will represent Queensland on the Motorsport Australia Board.
Motorsport Australia is pleased to announce Paul Woodward has been elected to the Motorsport Australia Board, representing the state of Queensland.

Paul’s election follows the retirement of Laurence Svenson.

Paul has significant motorsport experience, having been involved in the sport for many years as both a competitor and official, including serving as President of the Brisbane Sporting Car Club.

Outside of his many motorsport achievements, Paul has extensive senior management experience, having worked in various roles for the Queensland government.

Paul was understandably proud on being Queensland’s Elected Director.

“It is a great honour to serve on the Board of Motorsport Australia,” Paul said. 

“The impact of COVID-19 on Motorsport Australia and all affiliated clubs has been huge and I look forward to both the opportunity and the challenge of taking the sport, to which we have all devoted so much time and energy, forward. 

“While my background has been gravel rallies, I want to work with our stakeholders to keep motorsport relevant to our clubs, competitors and officials regardless of the discipline they pursue.” 

Motorsport Australia President-elect Andrew Fraser congratulated Paul on his election.

“We are pleased to welcome Paul to the Motorsport Australia Board and know his broad experience in the sport, as well as in senior management, will be very beneficial for our future,” Paul said.

“Paul replaces Laurence Svenson who retired from the Board after more than 11 years as Queensland’s Elected Director. Laurence has been part of many key moments during his time as a Director and on behalf of everyone at Motorsport Australia, we say a big thank you to Laurence and wish him well for the future.”

Paul will attend his first Board meeting in November.
