West Australian Disabled Sports Association Inc. (WADSA) held their annual Rev Heads Camp at the Collie Motorplex last week. 

Participants spent the week at the motorplex, engaging in various activities in the Collie area, including a track day which was held at the venue last Thursday. 

The campers had the opportunity to ride as a passenger in various types of cars as they drove laps of the the motorplex track. 

Regional Manager for West Australian Disabled Sports Association Colin Holden said the rev heads camp provided a chance for adults with disabilities to experience a range of motoring activities. 

“They are hugely kind here, the majority of the people that come to help out are volunteering their time and their cars,” he said. 

“It’s quite inspiring because you can see the participants are really engaged, and we have had extra participants on the track day because this is the most exciting of the days of the camp.”

Mr Holden said he was grateful to the car owners who donated their time and vehicles for the day. 

“There are racing cars, racing sedans, a burnout vehicle, a drag racing car, and we’ve also had some vintage and veteran cars that participants have been able to ride in,” he said. 

Members of the Collie Veteran Car Club were also in attendance to donate their time and vehicles. Mr Holden said WA Disabled Sports Association run camps two or three times each month at various locations around the state. 

“This particular rev heads camp we hold at least annually, and sometimes two times a year, it’s just so popular we might have to run a second one,” he said. 

There were about 20 participants that took part in this year’s camp, which was hosted by the Collie Motorplex. 

Participants also spent the week exploring the Collie region and taking part in various activities including; archery, frisbee golf, visiting tourist attractions and a quiz night. 

Mr Holden said WADSA was a small Perth-based organisation with a regional focus.
