On behalf of the Brisbane Sporting Car Club, it was very rewarding to receive an invitation to attend the Lockyer Valley Region Australia Day Award Ceremony, as a possible contender in the Community Event of the Year Category. When TJM Pro Locker – Lockyer 300 was named the winner, it was with great pride that I was able to accept the Award on behalf of the Brisbane Sporting Car Club, the Organising Team, the Land Owners, the Retail Outlets, Volunteers and Officials who made this event worthwhile for this award. Everybody worked hard to produce the event that they had a vision of, and had faith in themselves that they could produce a successful event.
Because the previous year’s event had to be re-constructed in every aspect, from the venue, to the course, to the presentation of awards, all due to the rain almost making the event a complete wash out, it consequently left us with an event where we virtually had to start from scratch.
However, our Event Sponsor TJM was thrilled with the concept that the Organising Team had in mind, and was constantly willing to assist during the year wherever they could, to make it a success.
The team from TJM were a delight to work with, which must say heaps for the way they organise and conduct their business. I only hope they can see their way clear to become the event sponsor for the 2014 year.
The property owners must be congratulated for having faith in us to do the right thing, by letting us traverse through their properties to organise and re-construct the course throughout the year, and then let us race those unbelievable machines on race day. Without these generous people there could not have been an event.
Special thanks must be passed onto Mr. Noel McGrath and families for their generosity in letting us use his entire front paddock as the venue for the event, and to Mr. Kevin Pitman for the use of his property to conduct the Media and Pre Event Ride Day.
Special thanks must go to Mr. Paul Emmerson for his donation of an enormous amount of time and expense for the organisation of the track construction, and being the interface between the Property Owners and the Organising Team. To all the Officials and Helpers who volunteered their time, and donated their out of pocket expenses throughout the year, and on the event, I extend to you my heart felt thanks. Your willingness to assist and help was much appreciated, and I cannot praise you enough for your experience, knowledge and support. The event was your event and I salute you.

|The TJM Pro Locker is an air-operated differential lock that, when fitted and engaged using compressed air, allows you to have equal drive to both wheels. Pro Locker works by engaging a locking ring over one axle gear which locks the gear to the carrier and immobilizes the differential pinion gears, giving you equal drive to both wheels & allowing you to tackle the toughest terrain.For more information on the TJM PRO LOCKER head to www.tjm.com.au For more information on Pro Locker & TJM go to: http://www.tjm.com.au/en/node/2761
