During the day drivers and riders were interviewed by Mr Peter Stapleton, who did all of the commentary at Point Pass, so his knowledge of what occurred during those days was valuable to all that attended to make it more interesting.

Some of them were:
Mrs Joan Lane Wife of Bob Lane who won the 1964 Championships. Trevor McIntosh Adelaide TQ Driver - SA 28 
Ms Dianne Lane Daughter of Bob Lane and was in attendance at the Championships to see her father win. Rob Smyth Micro Midget Driver from Murray Bridge.
Allan Straeder "Guest Speaker", from Sydney. Alan Jenkins Solo Rider No 48 and held ALL Solo Track Records at Point Pass.
Bill Kennedy 3rd Placegetter. Brenton Colmer Current Go-kart competitor and join Radio Announcer on BBB-FM for a Motor Sports Program radio program on Friday Nights.
Bob Haag 4th Placegetter. Ron Smith Current President of the South Australian Vintage Speedcar Association Inc.
Kevin Kurtzer Local TQ Driver - E4. Graham Wohling Sidecar Rider who competed at Point Pass
Brian Latz Local TQ Driver - E6. Kevin Hunt Jamestown TQ Driver - J 29
Jim Reese Local TQ Driver - E7.    
Jeff Holding Local TQ Driver - E8.    
Rodney Pfitzner Local TQ Driver - E9.    

Mr. Alan Straeder from Sydney was a "Guest Speaker", as he raced at Point Pass and spoke about some of his experiences at Point Pass and other Speedways and by the response from those who were listening intently, he was interesting to listen to.

The Official Opening was conducted by Mr. Jim Reese who was very instrumental in the negotiations of the Championships being held at Point Pass and he spoke of some of the things that occurred within that process.

He also paid tribute to those persons who were "Officials" at that meeting and that has passed away since it was held. Of a total of 22, 11 are no longer with us.

To keep everyone content so that they could enjoy themselves, the Point Pass Tennis Club had available lovely food for all to eat. The catered for anyone who wanted Hot or Cold Food, along with cups of tea or coffee to have with a piece of cake or some biscuits.

For those that wished to drink some thing cold, the Point Pass Hotel Social Club has Beer and Spirit Drinks for sale along with Cool Drinks.

From all reports available the catering was very good with that good "Country Style" flavour.

At the end of the day, approximately 350 persons attended and from feedback received it was a very successful event and will be remember for many years by those who attended.
