Port Lincoln sends off 2023 in style

Port Lincoln Racing Club has once again cemented itself as the place to be on New Year’s Eve after a large crowd of revellers attended on New Years Eve. A crowd of close to one thousand was in attendance at the New Year’s Eve Race Day, enjoying the party atmosphere and beautiful summer weather on the Eyre Peninsula.

Port Lincoln Racing Club Manager Elouise Dukalskis said, “We're absolutely delighted with the turnout for New Years Eve, and to have had so much diversity in our attendance.”

The race day saw a large number of people under-30 attended, demonstrating that there is appetite in the younger generations to be part of country racing in South Australia.  

It has been a transformative twelve month for the club after succumbing to track issues in late 2022 and having several race meetings cancelled, including the 2022 New Year’s Eve race day. 

“It was fantastic to see so many local families and friends making an occasion of the races to get together, and also so many tourists present on the day” continued Elouise Dukalskis.

Putting together an event such as New Year’s Eve in Port Lincoln wouldn’t be possible without the support of local club volunteers.  

Elouise Dukalskis said, “The Club is particularly grateful to our volunteers and sponsors for their incredible effort on the day - it's a mammoth undertaking to pull an event of this scale together.”

The strong support is encouraging as the racing season at Port Lincoln Racing Club continues to build over the coming months. On Wednesday 24 January the club hosts their G’day Australia Day races. The Port Lincoln Racing Club season culminates with the MGA Insurance Group Port Lincoln Cup on Friday 1 March.  

“All bodes well in the lead up to our premier Cup Day in just eight short weeks, on Friday, 1 March!” she said.
