Some of Queensland's best known racing names have joined the Kilcoy Race Club committee.

Kilcoy, 80km north of Brisbane, was a foundation Friday TAB circuit club in Queensland before being bumped back to country status about 20 years ago.

In recent years it has made a resurgence with nine TAB meetings and it hopes that will grow to one a month.

The club has also undergone extensive renovations on and off the track with the backing of the Somerset Council.

There are plans for further expansion at Kilcoy which also has a good relationship with the Brisbane Racing Club.

President Con Searle announced the committee after elections this week with high profile racing figures Kevin Dixon, Bart Sinclair and Paul Dolan successful.

Dixon is the former chairman of Racing Queensland and has extensive background as a breeder and owner.

Sinclair, a long time racing journalist and commentator, is a Queensland Hall Of Fame inductee.

Dolan was one of Queensland's leading race callers until he retired recently and also has served on other race club committees.
