Race fans will have the opportunity to meet their favourite V8 Supercar drivers at a pair of autograph sessions to be held in Wangaratta and Benalla on Thursday, 14 May, ahead of the Winton V8 SuperSprint on 15-17 May.

The autograph sessions will be held at the same time, 5:00-6:00pm, with different drivers allocated to each one – see list below.

Winton Raceway CEO Brian Pearson said the return of a pre-event autograph session to Wangaratta was a big coup for the race meeting.

“The autograph session at Benalla has been a traditional part of the pre-race festivities, and has been very popular with local motorsport enthusiasts, especially children who love the opportunity to meet their racing heroes and collect signed posters,” Mr Pearson said.

“There used to be a signing session at Wangaratta as well, which we’re very pleased to announce will be returning this year, which is excellent news for all our Wangaratta V8 fans.

“I strongly encourage all V8 fans to attend one of the autograph sessions, and pick up a poster signed by their favourite V8 Supercar drivers,” Mr Pearson concluded.
