The 2014 FUCHS Winternationals event has been recognised in the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business awards, taking out the Ipswich Turf Club Tourism/Community Event of the Year category.
The Ipswich Festival and Tivoli Miracle Centre Drive In were also shortlisted for the award, which is judged on: initiative, achievement, enthusiasm and dedication to excellence, as well as commitment and contribution to the Ipswich region.
