High Energy Horsepower Going To A Good Cause

Now is the time to check out the best of the best of motorsport and racing cars at the 2023 Whitsunday Horsepower Day this weekend, with all funds funnelled back into local mental health organisations.

Not afraid of thrills and spills, the crew behind the Monster Energy Race Car will be on the scene, along with high performance cars, corporate displays, and a fantastic display of might from the Queensland Police, Fire and Ambulance Services.

“This event is an exhibit of motorsport in all forms,” said committee member of Horsepower Heroes Victor Pozzoli.

“We have classic, modern, track cars and even crazy modified trucks, plus the helicopter doing adventure flights.”

Even V8 Supercar legend Cam Waters will be on the ground, sharing his love for the sport, as well as Nick Lange from the TA2 Racing Australia Muscle Car series.

With the crew of Blokesworld, beloved lifestyle TV show exploring all things bloke, filming all day, the event will be broadcast on TV across the nation.

Acting as a fundraiser for Horsepower Heroes Whitsunday, all funds raised will go towards community organisations, such as Whitsunday Suicide Prevention Network and Kick On.

“We will have a mental health pit bay too, with all the mental health organisations in the area set up like a pit lane,” said Victor.

“We’re playing on the race theme and promoting the different organisations.”
