APPLICATIONS for the 2022 Face Of Weetwood are now open.

The prestigious title, awarded in the lead-up to Clifford Park’s biggest and brightest race event of the year – the Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood – is highly sought-after.

Toowoomba Turf Club Chief Executive Officer Lizzy King is excited to see who nominates for this year’s title.

“The Face Of Weetwood is something very dear to the Club – it’s a wonderful way to engage with the community, by giving someone the special ‘limelight’ to help spread the word about the event. Our previous Face winners have done wonderful jobs. They have represented the Club and themselves beautifully.”

The Face of Weetwood will represent Clifford Park at all 2022 Weetwood events, including; Weetwood Golf Day, Breakfast with the Weetwood Stars, Barrier Draw, Weetwood Calcutta Sportsman’s Lunch and the race event itself on Saturday, September 24.

Last year’s Face Of Weetwood was local mum and racing enthusiast Vanessa Gleeson.

“To be the Face of the 2021 Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood was a dream come true. The experience was absolutely fantastic.

“Not only the actual race day, but all the events in the lead up. Having an Audi Q7 to drive for the week was an extra bonus – my boys didn’t want to give it back!

“If you’re thinking of applying, then please do. The experience was one I won’t forget. I made a lot of fantastic connections. I can’t thank Lizzy and the Board enough for giving me the opportunity.

“I wish this year’s Face Of Weetwood all the best – I would do it all over again in a heartbeat,” Mrs Gleeson said.

Ms King said the quality of previous nominees had been “outstanding” and encouraged racing and fashion lovers to nominate for the 2022 title.

“It is humbling to know that a number of wonderful ladies – and, sometimes, gents – in our community are so passionate about racing and, in particular, the Weetwood.

“Our Face of Weetwood will assist with raising the profile of the Weetwood event locally as well as intra and interstate. They will represent the Weetwood and all associated events with confidence, style and sophistication,” Ms King said.

Interested applicants have until Friday, August 12 to nominate at
