Mercure Hotel Parramatta - The Place To Stay
Author : Shaun McDonald

Sydney Speedway has reaffirmed its relationship with the Mercure Sydney Parramatta Hotel for season 2012/13. In what can only be described as an exciting partnership, there are a number of initiatives which will benefit the Sydney Speedway community and travelling interstate sprintcar teams and fans.

As an added bonus to interstate Sprintcar drivers, all drivers that run with the Mercure sticker on their car over the Christmas/New Year period will go into a draw to win a free night's accommodation.

Sydney Speedway would also like to announce a fan/driver meet and greet, to be held at the Mercure Hotel on Friday, December 28. There will be a sausage sizzle available with all proceeds being donated to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead. There will be no better way to celebrate the milestone of 1000 meetings!

The relationship, which Sydney Speedway has shared with the Mercure Sydney Parramatta Hotel for many years, has been strengthened tenfold and Raceway Manager, Rebecca Seymour couldn't be happier. "We are thrilled to have the Mercure Hotel back on board for another season. We will be using the Mercure for a number of events this season and I am looking forward to building on the strong relationship we have even further. We intend on working hard to lift the atmosphere and the anticipation in the lead up to the major part our season. The fan/driver meet & greet night will give the fans a great opportunity to get up close to their heroes in a relaxed environment away from the race track."

Apart from the meet and greet night, on the weekends of the Sydney Speedway Speedweek, World Series Sprintcars and Scott Darley Challenge events, there will be discounts on adult refreshments at the bar which will be remaining open late on those weekends, $10.00 breakfast for travelling teams with kids eating FREE and a great $10.00 Speedway Snack menu.

General Manager of Mercure Parramatta, Andrew Hills is happy with the direction that the partnership is heading. "I am excited about working with Sydney Speedway this season. We have discussed an array of different ideas, which I believe will benefit both parties. Let's hope for great weather and good racing! It is great that World Series Sprintcars is back in Sydney and we can't wait to make all of our interstate and international visitors welcome."

The very popular special room rate will apply to all speedway visitors if they mention Sydney Speedway for season 2012/13, making the Mercure Hotel the best place to stay. There is also the possibility of pool comps, pinball machines and other activities to keep everyone entertained.

So there you have it, The Mercure Hotel Parramatta is joining forces with Sydney Speedway like never before. Make sure you tell everyone you know that the only place to stay in Sydney is the Mercure Hotel Parramatta.
