It is with great sadness to hear the news that the Warwick and Districts Sporting Car Club President, Bill Campbell, has passed away. Bill with his vision for shaping Morgan Park into the amazing place it is today is a great achievement. To take it from the short circuit race track it once was into one on the best layouts in Australia is a commendable effort. It has become the backbone of CAMS circuit racing.
