A Member on course could win $50 000 every raceday! But you must be here to win! 

A great extra incentive for any RACE inc Member to be at every raceday! 
All you have to do is scan your Membership card to tell us that you are on course then you could win $50,000!


1) Simply scan in on arrival before Race 2 using your Members card (not guest card). The scanner will be either at the Raceday Office prior to Race 1 or there will be a roving scanner through the Members Stand between Race 1 and 2.

2) The draw with those scanned and registered will take place after Race 2 and the winner notified via the loudspeaker system must then present themselves prior to Race 3 to the Raceday Office.

3) The Member must then correctly choose the winners in 4 selected races at Trentham (determined by the WRC) at least 15 minutes before the first chosen race.

 If all four selections are winners, the Member will take home $50, 000!
