Alto helps club youth

JUNIOR drivers in the Coffs Harbour and District Sporting Car Club have been given a valuable piece of learner-driver equipment.

Bellbowrie Motors has given them a Suzuki Alto so they can learn how to drive and care for a car.

Craig Ranson from Bellbowrie Motors was instrumental in the idea of donating the car for a worthy cause.

“This is a great opportunity for juniors within the club, who can enter events from the age of 12, to learn the dynamics of car control,” Mr Ranson said.

“The earlier kids can learn to drive better and the events the Coffs car club conducts under strict supervision for these kids are second to none.”

Club president Scott Bedford was overwhelmed by the gesture.

“Our club has a number of priorities this year and one of our main focuses is on junior driver training,” Mr Bedford said.

“This opportunity has been welcomed with open arms and the club thanks Bellbowrie Motors for its generosity.”

The Suzuki Alto will make its first appearance on April 17 at a motorkhana.

Anyone wanting further information can contact Scott Bedford on 0408 867 990.
