Graham Withers – 75 Years Young & Still Going ……

In August of this year Graham Withers will turn 75 years young and is still heavily involved in business and his love for Drag Racing. I speak to many people who revisit the ‘Good Old Days’ of the antics that they and Graham would get up to whether it was racing to work in their ‘pride and joy’ cars of that era or at the Riverside Raceway back in mid 1960’s. Others reminisce about the days that they grew up with Graham visiting him at his speed shop in Cheltenham or watching him on the various tracks in Australia in the ‘Ampol GT’ or his funny car ‘Demons Disciple’ which not only did he race ‘aswell as other drivers’, Graham also built the chassis for the funny car. Till my next blog J.

2016 is bringing many new things to Pro-Race & Graham Withers so where do I start ? Well its already June, yes half the year has gone already….. So what has the first half of the year brought Pro-Race?

Well firstly I have had Nicole Coughlin Senior Online Producer, Institute of Online Business Pty Ltd upgrade the Pro-Race website & I will be doing weekly blogs which hopefully everyone in cyber land will enjoy! The Facebook page is going well with many lively conversations, I attempt to post one or two new pictures a week and then share to the Australian Drag Racing History & Memorabilia Facebook page.

Pro-Race has Geoff ‘Mr G’ working hard in Sydney to get us more presence in the NSW market and this will then increase our Australian market client base.
