The NSW Wingless Sprints held their annual end of season gala last Saturday night at the Merrylands RSL. A great turnout of around 180 guests celebrated the end of season in style.
The night, emceed by Valvoline Raceway’s Stu McCarthy, was a resounding success for all concerned as the winter recess begins.
A wonderful magic show was definitely one of the highlights for the guests on the evening.
There were also plenty of awards handed out to well-deserved drivers who had a successful season. The awards were as follows;

3rd: Jason Bates
