Club Development Fund open for round two

Thursday 30 June, 2022
The Supercheap Auto Club Development Fund is open for round two.
Motorsport Australia affiliated clubs have another opportunity to claim a financial boost with the second round of the Supercheap Auto Club Development Fund now open.
 
Targeted at supporting the growth and development of clubs and the motorsport industry, the Supercheap Auto supported program has delivered grants of more than $100,000 through Motorsport Australia in recent years.

In the first round of funding announced earlier this year, 22 clubs were successful in their applications to receive offers – a record for the program. 
 
New South Wales was the most successful state with 10 clubs having received funding, while Queensland and South Australia had four each, Western Australia three and Tasmania one.
 
One of the clubs to receive the funding was the Sydney Off Road Racing Association and Club President Shane Ramsay believed the funding was crucial.
 
“The club is still reeling from the bushfires that destroyed our facilities a couple of years ago. What was there for almost 50 years was destroyed in just 24 hours,” Ramsay said.
 
“We have been spending the past two years trying to rebuild the club to where it was and any funding that we receive is mighty helpful in reaching that goal.
 
“The money we received from the Club Development Fund is being put towards the much-needed kitchen that will help us feed the volunteers and participants for our local and state-run events.
 
“We are grateful for these opportunities from Motorsport Australia, the six to 12 people key in driving the revival and having the backing of our local member and the Government support – without all of those, it wouldn’t be possible.”

• Funding Area 3: Women and Girls’ Participation

While there are four avenues of funding available, clubs are encouraged to use the funding for events and programs that positively contribute to diversity and inclusion within motorsport and help grow membership numbers.
