2013 Sprite Expo
What an incredible day to have Sprite Expo 2013. The sun was shining, but the clouds that fluttered by kept the day cool enough to be comfortable most of the time. And the occasional breezes were very welcome.
CT White Park, Kangaroo Point came alive today with a show of 36 Spridgets and 23 Invited Cars. 2 Sprite Race Cars, 1 Midget Race Car, 33 Sprites and Midgets, 6 Austin Healeys, 7 Morris’s, 8 Minis, 1 Moke and 1 MG TF attracted a lot of attention with the passerbys at Kangaroo Point. The very colourful display filled the park.
The Marquee tent housing the BBQ, Regalia, and Raffle Prizes, displays from Classic Car Clinic, The Frog Pond, and the attendance from The Coffee Kid completed the scene. It was terrific to such a great turnout to this year’‛s event.
Well done to Bruce Wallace who took out the people’s choice award with his wonderful example of a mk3 Sprite.
