These Partners Are the Heroes with the Passion to Transform This Community
- Australian Motorsport has not had any noticeable participation by our Indigenous People. Motorsport, like any sport, has enormous potential to provide a source of enjoyment, motivation and pride, to those who participate, be it as a driver, mechanic, race engineer or event official.
The Racing Together project is designed to identify and then assist suitable candidates from a cohort of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths of both genders, in the 12 to 16 years age group, and provide them with an opportunity to pursue a career in our sport, as either a driver or a member of a race team.
- The Kennards Hire Foundation was launched in June 2018.
The vision of the Kennards Hire Foundation is to make Australia and New Zealand better places for future generations by significantly improving the:
• ability of disadvantaged young people to be independent, self- sufficient contributors to society
• environment through conservation of land and species
Whilst the Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests for donations, the Kennards Hire branch network continues to support and contribute to a wide variety of local charities, schools, sporting and community groups.
