the minty files

4TO radio presenter and longtime MC for our annual event Minty just can't stay out of trouble ... after last year's "incident" when he crashed into the crowd while racing downhill one-handed and live Facebook-streaming, he was "arrested" this year by our coppers on the spot Kim and Jay, and "charged" with speeding and dangerous operation of a vehicle.
He was so traumatised he resorted to Lego re-enactments for his new Facebook profile pic!!

Supercars Australia has supported our event from day one, with the generous donation of weekend passes to the Townsville 400 as raffle prizes every year, and drivers grabbing the chance to hop in one of our billy carts in their pre-event visits to Townsville.
And they're looking for volunteers to help out at this year's Townsville 400, on July 7 - 9, 2017 at Reid Park.
Positions needed include seating ushers, car park attendants, manning the information booth, gatekeepers, runners, administration and accreditation staff, and at the media centre.
Those with previous CAM certification are also need to help as marshals for fire and rescue, flag, pit lane, grid, track and paddock.
