Ultimate Motorsport Prize 2022 winner announced

We are pleased to announce the lucky winner of this years’ “money can’t buy prize”, offered by our wonderful corporate supporter Pirtek to support St Vincent’s Hospital’s Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit as Julie Humphries from Queensland.

Pirtek called on friends in the motorsport industry to create the ultimate Bathurst experience for our winner lucky winner and a guest, who will be treated as SUPER VIP’s at one of the world’s greatest motorsport events this October.

Having purchased five tickets as part of the raffle, Julie, a car enthusiast and motorsport fan was delighted at her win.

“I’m so thrilled,” said Humphries. “You never expect to win these things and I’ve never won anything. I honestly saw it as a great cause to support and I wanted to get behind it.”

Julie, a cardiologist herself, understands the importance of supporting St Vincent’s Hospital’s Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit.

“It’s good for lots of reasons, winning a prize was never on my radar, I just wanted to support the work and research that is being done.

“A lot of the day-to-day practice that I am involved in is very well researched, very evidence based and I use it every day to help patients. In neurosciences, there are a lot of unknowns and unless we support charities like the Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit we’re not going to have the necessary information to help.”

St Vincent’s Hospital’s Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit is recognised as one of Australia’s leading Neurosciences Research Unit and focuses on research and developing treatments for chronic neurological and neurodegenerative brain disorders including Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease; Parkinson Disease and Stroke.

Funds raised will help St Vincent’s establish a Centre of Excellence in Brain Health ensuring the best possible research driven care and treatments are available to our patients and our community.
