One Dog Racing ‘flies’ to strong finish for Little Wings

There was plenty of action on the racetrack on Saturday September 14 when our very own Trent Devine helped steer his team to a nail-biting finish at the 2019 Mammoth Projects Charity Race Day held at Pheasant Wood Circuit in the Southern Highlands.

This was the fifth year that Sydney-based construction, fit-out and refurbishment contracting service company Mammoth Projects has held the race. All money raised goes to Little Wings, a charity that funds flights to enable sick children from rural and regional NSW access medical services in cities and towns. Little Wings believes in keeping families together, so they also fly parents to visit their children and bring them home for much-needed time with their family and friends.

Trent and his co-drivers Greg Malone from G&H Financial, Steve Agosta from Nelson McKinnon Lawyers and friend Phil Anson pushed their red racer, The One Dog, a 2004 Toyota Echo, to its limits. The team came fourth out of 25 teams, in the process raising a whopping $8,000 – the second highest of all the teams and far surpassing their $5,000 goal. Overall, $87,000 was raised, which smashed the goal of $75,000. A sensational effort!

“It was a fabulous day and there was a lot of action,” says Trent. “Not only that, but we raised a huge amount of money for a really worthwhile cause. Thanks to all our supporters and donors. We couldn’t have done it without you.”

Each donor received a sticker on The One Dog and anyone who donated $400 or over got a large sticker on the car. A big shout out to Erick Meguid, who donated $1,000 and was trackside to watch his team race, and many thanks also to these legends:
