Auto Fes­ti­val revving ahead on Satur­day

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

AUTO FEST: The Bur­nett Auto Club will hold its third an­nual car show, Monto Auto Fest 2017, on the grounds at 391 Air­port Rd on Satur­day, June 24.

There will be a show and shine to give peo­ple the chance to show off cars they’ve been work­ing on and burnouts to let peo­ple put their scrap­pier ve­hi­cles to the test.

Auto Club trea­surer Te­gan Araya said the burnouts had be­come the high­light of the fes­ti­val.

“The first year we only had about 10 burnout cars, last year we had 24,” Mrs Araya said.

Ev­ery­thing is nom­i­nated on the day, so any­one can drive up to en­ter their car in the show and shine or the burnouts.

Prizes range from car wash, sponges, oil, coolant, right up to a set of four tyres.

The club has re­ceived about $6000 worth of cash and prod­ucts do­nated by lo­cal busi­nesses.

The gates will open to the pub­lic at 9am, with the burnouts start­ing at 10am.

There will be food and drinks, face paint­ing, a jump­ing cas­tle, ice cream van and mar­ket stalls.
