Sporting website for sale
Here is your chance to purchase a ground-up sporting website that covers all types of sport throughout the world both electronically and with manual insertion.
Sporting Scribe was developed back in 2013 as a sports website that gathered news headlines and articles via RSS feeds and press releases. The site has collected more than 28 million articles to date and continues to add around 8,000 new articles daily. Some 55 sports categories covering hundreds of sporting competitions all across the world are currently listed on the site with the potential to add thousands more. The site updates every 15 minutes electronically with the added ability to add sports news 24/7 manually.
As part of the site’s future financial viability, each sporting page carries 8 advertising spots down the left-hand side of the page. With over 3,000 pages currently listed on the site, the advertising income potential is enormous. This provides the site currently with 24,000 potential live advertising spots with unlimited future advertising growth.
More than 20,000-man hours have been invested into the site to date which in today’s climate would amount to several million dollars in infrastructure costs. The site is ready for an E-organisation with industry knowledge to take over and develop the earning potential the site was originally set up for. I currently don’t have the time to check over the site for updates or the knowledge to introduce the site to the e-trading/advertising world.

Amazing Allard J2
We have the honour of showcasing so many spectacular vehicles at the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival each year. The Allard J2, driven by competitor Graham Smith, is just one of these vehicles.
The Allard has some impressive stats and even more impressive history. The Allard J2 was extremely popular in the USA, but only a very small number came to Australia.
This example is believed to be the first J-type Allard brought into Australia by Rube Gardiner in 1950. Originally most J2 cars were fitted with a side valve Ford V8, but this particular car had a Chrysler OHV V8 fitted in the mid sixties.
Catch the Allard J2 and over 150 more vehicles race in the historic 1/4 mile sprints.
This will get your stomach grumbling! This year we have some amazing food options available to keep you fueled during a big weekend of racing. Just a couple of the food trucks at this year's event are Copa Grill and Smokey & the Brisket. We're talking pulled meats, juicy brisket burgers and saucy ribs. We have a wide variety of cuisines and food options across the entire event precinct, so make sure you have a light breakfast and treat yourself!

The Revival vintage caravan display will take you back to holidays of a bygone era. Take a peak inside trailers filled with character and authentic fittings many of which are towed by matching cars! The vintage caravan display proves to be a crowd favourite each event and we will have a record number of caravans on display this year.

Avalon, Vic/Aus. 21st January 2015. Former national champ James McFadden literally stole the President’s Cup out of Brooke Tatnell’s back pocket with a spectacular high line charge over the last 5 laps of the 25 lap President’s Cup that reeled in American Kyle Hirst then Ian Loudoun and with just over 2 laps remaining leader Brooke Tatnell.
2016 Essendon Ford President's Cup
McFadden who has thrilled the Avalon spectators with classic slide passes in the past put on a show of high line running which saw the charger round up the podium placegetters in no time. There is no doubt that his team had the perfect 25 lap setting on the car but that aside J Mac’s driving was nothing short of spectacular. Once he got on a roll it just seemed easy and the effortless pass he made on race leader Brooke Tatnell demonstrated just how good the car was after 20 laps of the 25 lap race.
Tatnell who started on the front row led the pack away for the 25 lap journey but had to do it all over again when Eureka Sheds Series leader Brett Milburn tipped it over in turn 4 bringing on the reds. Milburn who has had a faultless year to date walked away from the roll over but the car was finished for the night.
On the re-start Tatnell once again led them out with Loudoun, Hirst and J Mac in hot pursuit. Loudoun looked strong throughout the night and was never more than a dozen car lengths away from Tatnell and looked to be on his way to a well earnt podium position. McFadden on the other hand was having a go at Hirst but couldn’t make a pass stick on the current Classic champ early in the race. In fact positions were unchanged up front for the next 19 laps as the race settled into a steady pace.
New South Welshmen Andrew Wright who started the feature in 7th showed plenty of speed during the night and was capable of getting in amongst the leaders but unfortunately missed the set-up as the car went backwards losing 4 positions to finish in 11th. Wright would have been disappointed with the feature as the car looked seriously quick early in the night and having raced at Avalon on several occasions over the past couple of years would have been looking to advance up the order as the race went on.
On the other side of the coin there was one guy in particular who was making big inroads into the field as the race went on. Automatically one would assume that this guy was Jamie Veal as he was starting out of position 15 after having to qualify through the B-Main but in fact it was the ACT 21 Essendon backed car of Shaun Dobson. Dobson who had earlier picked up a heat win started out of position 11 for the feature with plenty to do if he was to advance up the leader board. To put Dobson’s drive into perspective, outside of McFadden who picked up 4 spots (in the last 5 laps) and Dion Bellman (2 spots to finish 7th), Dobson was the only other top 10 finisher to gain places picking off Milburn (accident), Bellman, Mollenoyux, Wright, Delemont and Anderson to finish in the top 5 after the 25 lap journey. Domain Ramsay who started at the rear managed to pick up a couple of spots but one of them was Milburn who had earlier crashed out. So for Dobson the lap board backs ups his exception drive in the feature and brings back memories of 2 seasons back where he dominated sprintcar racing at Avalon Raceway.
The race had 4 visiting Americans lining up in the feature with Hirst undoubtedly the most successful on the night. Of the Americans Hirst started in and finished in 3rd, Paul McMahon also finished where he started which was position 12 with Carson Macedo improving one spot to finish in 13th with Kraig Kinser also jumping a spot to 16th albeit a lap down.
The Essendon Ford backed team of Ian Loudoun’s V3 will go away scratching their heads as to what went wrong. Loudoun was looking so strong during the race holding down 2nd spot and apart from an early look by Hirst was virtually on his own for the entire race distance until the pass by McFadden. No one could stop the rampaging McFadden but all of a sudden Loudoun found himself in 4th position and off the podium after Hirst got by on the 2nd last lap. Car owner David Dixon spoke of how the team was disappointed at the result and felt for Loudoun who had been faultless throughout the race. In the end it was another classic McFadden race that thrilled the large gathering of spectators who had made the mid-week trek.
Top 5 were McFadden, Tatnell, Hirst, Loudoun and Dobson.
Heat winners were Dobson, Domain Ramsay, American Paul McMahon, Ryan Davis and Ian Loudon. Super stars Line, Murcott and American Terry McCarl didn’t figure in the night at all.
The sprintcars have a spell from Avalon and return on the 5th of March for the Great Southern Showdown. Go to : http://www.avalonraceway.com/ for more info on what's happening at Avalon Raceway
