Angelo Russo’s City Motor Auctions have come out on top of a fantastic weekend of entertainment, thrills and competition at the prestigious Alsace Polo 2016 Infiniti Cup.
The 2016 Infiniti Cup event — held at The Alsace Polo Fields owned by Yellow Cab Managing Director Neill Ford and his wife Trisha in the picturesque Veresdale Scrub Valley — is one of the highlights of Brisbane’s social calendar, routinely attracting the city’s best and brightest.
But it’s not all about Moët and millionaires — there’s also some intense competition out there on the field.
This year’s big winner was Angelo Russo’s City Motor Auctions team, who narrowly prevailed over Ron Wanless’ Oxley Sports Drome squad in the 10 Goal Final, winning 10-9.
Damien Johnston took home MVP honours, while City Motor Auctions’ Brodie Donovan was awarded the Champion Pony gong.
In the 10 Goal Subsidiary Final, Neill Ford’s Yellow Cabs team made the most of their homecourt advantage to defeat Brendan Menegazzo’s Stanbroke team 7-5.
The 4 Goal Final was won by Bill Stinchcombe’s Hallelujah Farms, who defeated Brad Greene’s PM Solutions, with Hallelujah’s Trent Walkden winning Champion Pony honours.
Infiniti’s dealer principal Marco Kim and managing director Jean-Philippe Roux were in attendance to watch these corporate titans clash.
Queensland sporting legends Ian Healy and Darren Lockyer were also spotted mingling with the star-studded crowd.
Spectators who had travelled from as far afield as Sydney and Melbourne for the event were also treated to a men’s fashion parade by Raafat Imam’s boutique Xile Clothing, and a women’s fashion parade by Brisbane designer Julie Tengdahl.
The Infiniti Cup will return in 2017 — stay tuned for details!
