V8 sedans to lap for seriously ill mother
GROWING up in Bundaberg, Sally Weller, Kellie Mortensen and their siblings loved going to Carina Speedway.
It was a family tradition and the place to be of a Saturday night for any '80s baby.
In honour of Mrs Weller, who has terminal cancer, the v8 super sedans will do a lap on November 10.
Mrs Mortensen said her sister loved watching them and would often come home with mud through their hair after the races.
"We would stand right next to the fence so the mud would go in our hair and breath in the smell of the v8," she said.
Mrs Weller's health has deteriorate in the last few weeks and family believe she may not make it to see the race.
"She was looking forward to going and couldn't wait till they came," Mrs Mortensen said.
They family is asking anyone who would like to go in memory of Sally to wear a white shirt with Sally written on the front and 86, her birth year, on the back.
