It’s time to restart those engines


exotic-cars Pencil Friday June 12th into your calendar because we you are invited to join us for our Fifth Year of the Exotic Car Experience Drive Day Charity Event. This year the Mansfield Family from the Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command will be our special guests. Dave has been diagnosed with cancer and he is currently undergoing treatment. We hope to help make this another memorable day for the NSW Police Family. (Update) Unfortunately Dave’s health at this time means the Mansfield Family are unable to join us for this year’s event. Instead the family of Ally Sheehan will be our special guests on the day. Ally is a Police Officer at Tweed Heads who is also undergoing treatment for cancer. Please join us in supporting the families of both Dave and Ally as they face this challenge. Once again a very big thank you goes out to all those generous sponsors and individuals who donate their time and their vehicles. Their ongoing support makes this a very special day on the NSW Police Force calendar.

Our plan is to build a high school in the remote village of Samasodu. At present there is only a primary school in the village. The nearest high school is 6 hours away on a boat and children must board at $3000 Solomon Dollars per year. As a result only about 20% of the children in the village go to high school.  A high school in the village of Samasodu will service around 10 nearby villages and provide the opportunity for a high school education to around 100 children each year.

There is one remaining package up for grabs. If you wish to negotiate a price please contact Chief Inspector Rod Peet at Wyong Police Station on (02) 43 566 099 or email peet1rod@police.nsw.gov.au. Alternatively leave a comment and we will get in touch with you via email.

Last year was so successful we are doing it all over again


As you can see from this news report by the National Ten Network, last year’s Exotic Car Experience to raise money for the Rixon Family (see ABC News Coverage) and the Solomon Island’s outreach project was an overwhelming success story.

In fact it was successful we raised over $25,000. So, thanks to the generous contributions of our patrons, sponsors and helpers who provide, free of charge, the private track, the exotic cars and, of course, their expertise as professional driving instructors, we are back to do it again.

We are now in our Third Year of the Exotic Car Experience Drive Day Charity Event and things are going to be even bigger and better.

This year there are 8 Exotic Car Experience Drive Day Packages up for auction.

The event will be held on the 30th August, 2013 at a private facility on the Central Coast. The eight positions will be individually auctioned with the highest eight bidders obtaining the privilege of driving a range of exotic super cars that at the present time include Lamborghini, Ferrari, Audi R8, HSV, FPV, Porsche and Mercedes Benz.

This year all proceeds of this event will go to the following charitable causes;

  • Bryson Anderson Memorial Fund – Bryson Anderson was a Detective Inspector was killed in a knife attack in Western Sydney in December last year. Funds raised will assist his wife three children.
  • Solomon Islands Community Health and Development Project – Chief Inspector PEET from Tuggerah Lakes LAC has been conducting projects in remote areas of the Solomon Islands for the last ten years. These projects build much needed medical infrastructure, such as clinics and housing for medical staff. Police from the Central Coast have been involved in these projects with over 110 self funded participants travelling to the Solomon Islands to assist with these building projects. Last year, September, 2012, a team of 30 people visited the remote village of Samasodu and provided medical assistance and installed clean drinking water infrastructure in the village. This is a registered charity approved by the ATO (ABN: 73 978 624 436).

For further information please contact Chief Inspector Rod Peet at Wyong Police Station on (02) 43 566 099 or email peet1rod@police.nsw.gov.au.

Just like last year this is sure to be a day of big, big smiles.

A Big Day Out. Fantastic Cars. Fantastic Day
