Roxburgh Park Sandown Round Sales Event

Sandown Raceway, 25 kilometres south east of Melbourne has played an important part in Australian motorsport since the 1960s. The biggest names in the business, from Fangio and Moss to Brabham and Brock have all raced there. Only five races are allowed every year due to its suburban location which makes every event extra special and they don’t get more special than the V8 Supercars Sandown 500. To coincide with the Sandown 500, Rare Spares puts on one of its biggest annual events, the Rare Spares Sandown Sale.

Held at Rare Spares Roxburgh Park recently, it was always promising to be an extra special sales event.

“The Rare Spares Roxburgh Park VIP night that was held on the 9th September was another very successful event and a great turn out,” said Silvio Nanfaro, the 2IC at Roxburgh Park.

With the doors opening at 6 o’clock, customers were greeted with a traditional Aussie sausage sizzle out front.

Once inside, customers were treated to a massive 20% off all Rare Spares products.

Not content with spoiling our customers with bangers and bargains, next was the chance to mingle with current V8 Supercar Star Jason Bright, along with Leo Tobin, Brett Youlden and Gary O’Brian from the Touring Car Masters (TCM) series.

And if that wasn’t enough, everyone had the chance to win some truly awesome prizes.

Rare Spares and Men’s Shed Building Men’s Health Together

Rare Spares is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Australian Men’s Shed Association as part of Rare Spares’ commitment to Men’s Health issues. The new partnership will see Rare Spares and Men’s Shed work together on numerous initiatives to further the Men’s Shed cause.

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is a not-for-profit organisation that formed in 2007 with the idea of using sheds around the country to offer men a comfortable environment to tackle various projects together, form friendships, break down barriers and in turn open up and communicate on issues that are affecting them. 

“Partnering with Rare Spares is a perfect fit for the Men’s Shed initiative considering the number of men that use Rare Spares parts to work on their vehicles in their own sheds at home. We’re happy to have the opportunity to work with Rare Spares and look forward to the positive effects this will bring to men around the country,” said David Helmers, Executive Officer of the AMSA.

“There has been little encouragement for men to take an interest in their own health and well-being. Many men are reluctant to talk about their emotions or problems and that means that they usually don’t ask for help.”

Men who are struggling to cope with no outlet often turn to alcohol, take risks and suffer more from isolation, loneliness and depression. Relationship breakdowns, retrenchment or early retirement from a job, loss of children following divorce, physical or mental illness are just some of the problems that men find hard to deal with on their own. The AMSA provide opportunities to broach these subjects in a familiar environment.

“Rare Spares is proud to announce this partnership with the Australian Men’s Shed Association. The AMSA cause is a noble one and resonates with our team. I’m sure the greater Rare Spares community will also get behind the initiative and make a difference to men’s lives across the country,” said Melissa McVeigh, Marketing Manager/Director at Rare Spares.

“Rare Spares will be launching a dollar donation campaign online and in store at the Roxburgh Park and Bayswater stores to raise funds for the AMSA. Further initiatives are planned starting in early September with the E-bay auction of a V8 Supercar Hot Lap ride with Jason Bright, where the winning bid amount will be donated to the AMSA.”

Brisbane South Sales Night

It was Rare Spares Brisbane South’s turn to host its annual sales night recently on the 29th of July.

Customers were greeted with the sweet aroma only a traditional Aussie sausage sizzle can provide, thanks to The East Coast Muscle Car Club, and the evening only got sweeter as the night progressed. With the doors opening at 6pm, the attention went from sausages to sales with a massive 20% off everything storewide.

V8 Supercar Royalty and Rare Spares Ambassador John Bowe, along with fellow Rare Spares Ambassador and V8 Supercar Superstar Jason Bright were on hand to chat and sign autographs for customers. They were joined by Jason Gomersall and Ian Palmer.

Manager and owner for the last seven years, Bruce Waldie was extremely happy with how the evening went. “The night went really well! Everything went to plan and with over 300 customers, turnover was great,” said Bruce.

“The drivers stayed about 2 hours and appeared to have a great time. My wife Lyn looked after them. We were so busy I never had time to get outside until after the draws were over.”

To top off a fantastic evening, customers, many of whom bought along their own cars to display, were given the chance to win a Double Pass to the Ipswich Supersprint, a $100 Rare Spares voucher or a Touring Car Masters Merchandise Pack.
