GLADSTONE will be pumping tonight as the V8 supercar drivers zoom their way to town.

V8 driver Jason Richards said he had never been to Gladstone and was looking forward meeting the local people.

'We have a busy weekend ahead,' he said.

'I am looking forward to having a formal part of the weekend in Gladstone.

'I am not sure on the full details yet but I am looking forward to getting to Gladstone and raising money for charity.

"It will be nice to meet and greet the local community.''

Co-ordinator Gavin Dicinoski said the tickets had been selling quickly for the event at the Gladstone Entertainment Centre.

'It's great to see local residents support the event, while also helping raise money for local charity, Roseberry Community Service,'' he said.
