Respected drag racing journalist and photographer John Baremans will officially take over as the new ANDRA Media & PR Officer on Monday December 12.
John takes the reigns from Tim Baker who leaves the organisation on Friday December 9 to take up a new sports media opportunity elsewhere.
John has been around the sport for quite some time, starting as an official at Castlereagh International Dragway, then joining Dragster Australia magazine as Assistant Editor and Layout Artist. He is also a keen photographer and collector of all things drag racing.
His previous role involved working with AVE Pty Ltd as their in-house graphic designer and social media manager for Speedweek and MotorsportsTV.
“John will be great for ANDRA,” said outgoing Media & PR Officer Tim Baker. “We collaborated quite a few times in my time here and he will do a far better job than I ever could.”
“Thank you to all the staff, management and of course the members. I’ve met so many great people along the way, made some great friends and I am privileged to have been apart of ANDRA Drag Racing for the past 2 years 11 months.
“I wish John all the best in the role and I am excited to see where he takes things.”
John will be based remotely in Sydney and will remain in daily contact with Head Office. Currently he can be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
