This time of year the Mornington Racing Club comes alive with the start of the Spring Carnival and the Peninsula Cup run this Sunday.

And there is much to celebrate with the new partnership RPP FM local radio and the Racing Club recently formed.

In the spirit of the community, the two businesses have joined forces to promote events and functions at the racecourse. The Racing Club is also sponsoring RPP FM’s Mornings with Heather Mc program.

It’s no secret the Mornington Racing Club accommodates the best events and functions high on the Mornington Peninsula social calendar and now there has never been a better time to be part of the next exciting chapter in the Racing Club’s history. The Melbourne Racing Club is refurbishing the ground floor of the RM Ansett Grandstand in Mornington. The new space is expected to be complete by early 2016.

tableYou will be amazed with the supreme standard of the premier dining facilities at the racecourse offering a gourmet dining experience matched with undisrupted racecourse views. It’s also an ideal environment to entertain, network and impress your clients.

There is a range of membership types to suit your needs and budget with a reward program across the 2015/16 Race Day & Marquee Packages and including Seniors/retirees special days, family days with a focus on children’s entertainment and member discounts for Melbourne Racing Club owned concerts and events.

RPP FM’s role in the partnership is to help promote events and functions on the airways and there are many to put in your ‘must attend’ social diary to name a few:
