The Bathurst 1000
Bathurst...for many motoring and sporting enthusiasts the name conjures up memories of racing heroes young and old, and of course the legendary Mount Panorama track that each year captivates an October weekend of sport.
The 24th Annual St Gregs College Sportsman Dinner
The 24th Annual St Gregory’s College Sportsman’s Dinner was held at the school last Friday night, and once again it was a cracker.
Each year, the Committee that organises the dinner are faced with the arduous task of going one better and this year was no exception with dozens of Athletes, Sports administrators and even the odd Commentator turning up to regale the guests with their stories...
The Hyundai Kona Launch night!
Last Thursday night I was lucky enough to attend the eagerly awaited Hyundai Kona launch at the Qudos Bank Arena, which is a phenomenal addition Hyundai Motor’s growing line up of SUV’s. The Kona is a compact SUV perfect for the modern person with an active lifestyle. . .
A fantastic day at the HSV Muscle Car Show
What a weekend!!! Sunday saw the mighty V8’s rumble into Wakelings Parts & Service Centre, with the return of the HSV & HDT Owners Club Muscle car show…Holden V8 fans certainly had lots to drool over, with scores of supremely detailed and lovingly restored Commodores, Clubsports, Senators, GTS and even a sprinkling of some super-fast racing variants thrown in.
HSV Muscle Car Show
I love this time of year, the NRL finals are at the pointy end…the days start to get longer and warmer, and the V8 Supercar endurance rounds kick off with Bathurst not too far away. At Wakelings, this time of year is also when we host our annual HSV and HDT owners clubs' Show and Shine event in our Service & Parts facility at Campbelltown.
The Annual Mater Dei Foundation dinner
On Saturday night the annual Mater Dei Foundation dinner took place at the Cube. Each year this event somehow surpasses the expectation set by the year before and once again we were blown away with the night. This year, the theme was Casino Royale and upon entering the room it was like walking into a James Bond 007 set, with chandeliers hanging from the roof, a red carpet and a grand piano as the feature in the middle of the room…
Spring is in the air at Wakeling Automotive
Spring has finally sprung… like many Macarthur residents we spent our father’s day weekend reveling in the warmer air that allowed us to enjoy the great outdoors. This time of year is always nice, the footy finals are here…(the Tigers farewelled Teddy and Woodsy in style. We even caught a glimpse of another Marshall coming through the ranks)…
National Skills Week!
This week is National Skills week and it celebrates diversity and career pathways available through Vocational Education and Training…at Wakelings we employ over 70 Technicians who’s skill sets are amongst those being celebrated. Its important to highlight just how far being a light vehicle technician has come.
Supporting the West Tigers and the community
If you’re a Tigers supporter, (and why wouldn’t you be?), it’s been a really tough year…but I’ve got to say the way the boys have stuck it out through the back end of the season has filled me with some optimism and kept me proud of our joint venture crew.
Macarthur Business Awards
Recently, we attended the Macarthur Business Awards at the Cube, hosted by NSW Business Chamber. This year the awards were held in conjunction with Macarthur’s Business Event of the Year which we were proud to sponsor…this event showcases many of the regions fantastic entrepreneurs and leading businesses and is certainly an event that many people place on their calendar.
Wakeling Automotive 2017 Awards Night
Saturday night was a huge night for all of us at Wakelings…it was our annual staff awards night, which this year we held at the Cube. I always look forward to this night, it’s our opportunity to thank all of our wonderful staff, to spend time together, to reflect on where we have been and where we are going.
A weekend with Wakeling Automotive
What a weekend…not only was the weather fantastic this weekend, (you can tell spring is coming), but the crew at Wakelings was also kept busy with two huge community events…Firstly we were on hand to help out the Oran Park Gregory Hills Chargers JRLFC with their Gala day…
What a time to celebrate!
We’ve got a big week ahead of us at Wakeling Automotive. On Wednesday night, we are celebrating being a major sponsor of Macarthur’s ‘Business Event of the Year’.
Taking care of your car in Winter
As I drive down Camden Valley Way of a morning, it is very apparent that winter is upon us. The average morning tempreature seems to be quite settled between 4 – 6 degrees… which means the heated seat feature is on high for the entire journey to work! When winter comes around, we all like to stay nice and toasty inside our homes...
The Astra Sedan has Arrived!
It has been a big couple of weeks here at our Holden dealerships... We’ve had a huge Holden 4 Day Sale that was then extended until the end of the June, where we were able to deliver over 130 new Holdens! Now as we continue into the new financial year, we are very excited to have launched the all new Astra Sedan.
