Hefty donation for Sprints success

WESTLINK Petroleum have just given a grand donation to the Wondai Street Sprints to help grant them another great event.

Danny Kreutzer, managing director of Westlink Petroleum, has announced his $10,000 donation to the Wondai Street Sprints.

As well as being a part of the fuel and motor industry, Mr Kreutzer has always had an interest in motorsports.

"I've followed the V8s for a long time, and being a part of that community, I like to support the industries that want to move forward with motor racing," he said.

According to Mr Kreutzer, they've donated to the Wondai Street Sprints since the first year of the event.

"We like to see all things in the South Burnett move forward, and we sponsor a lot of organisations throughout the South Burnett, but we make sure to stick to this one because motor racing is close to my heart," he said.

"Our sponsorship has grown each year, and the Wondai Street Sprints committee has continued to do a terrific job in return."


Westlink Petroleum also sponsors speedway events, the Mayor's Ball, as well as the Kingaroy and Wondai shows.

Mr Kreutzer is very excited to see what this year's Wondai Street Sprints will offer, on April 13 and 14.

"It's great watching the racers, the way the guys all get on and the lack of drama. You often see racers help blokes they don't even know to get their cars back on the road after a crash, and that's something you don't see elsewhere. It's a great racing community," he said.

Because of this great community, Mr Kreutzer said Westlink was more than happy to be a part of the ordeal.

"They are popular enough to get a couple thousand people in there each day, and it's great for the town," he said.

"All the pubs are full, and the motels are booked out, and that's great for our local businesses. Especially in these tough times, with drought and what else we've had. The town really needs all the help they can get with these things."
