ORRCON STEEL'S FANTASTIC FAN EXPERIENCE FOR WINNING BIDDER

Long-time V8 Supercar sponsor Orrcon Steel has produced the ultimate fan package for Saturday's massive Keith Evers Recovery Fund auction during the Ipswich 300 at Queensland Raceway.

Former V8 Supercar Team Manager, Keith Evers, has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia -- commonly known as AML and is under going chemotherapy at the Gold Coast Hospital before another assessment is made on the next phase of his treatment.

Orrcon Steel, sponsors of Ford Performance Racing, are regarded as the leaders in corporate hospitality when it comes to their customers and one lucky bidder and a friend are going to experience just that first hand.

Orrcon Steel are offering up two three-day corporate tickets for the Sydney Telstra 500 at Homebush in December, including flights from Melbourne or Brisbane (if needed) and three nights twin-share accommodation, as well as a personal meeting with Mark Winterbottom and Steve Richards, a tour through the Ford Performance Racing pit area and a team merchandise pack.

This item will be auctioned along with 21 other high-end items in the Queensland Raceway paddock area from 2.30pm on Saturday -- the auction will be hosted by Channel 7 celebrities.

Orrcon Steel Event and Sponsorship Manager, Stewart Smith, said that Evers was a friend of the Orrcon Steel Racing family.

"Keith was the Team Manager at WPS Racing when we were involved with that team and was always fantastic towards us and our customers," said Smith.

"We were all gutted when we heard his news and hopefully this auction item will develop a chunk of change for the fund. We are sure the motorsport public will get out there and support this event as much as they can at the weekend."

The weekend's fund raising will also include a three-day memorabilia store where teams, drivers and fans have donated a whole host of items for sale. It will be in V8 Supercar merchandise area.

An account at the Bank of Queensland where fans can donate funds. (BSB: 124001; Account: 21422310) has also been established.
