POLICE are calling for help to catch two drivers who were spotted doing burnouts along the McIvor Hwy between GoornongBarnadown Rd and the Axedale township.
It is believed the drivers had just left a meet at Heathcote Park Raceway when they stopped to do burnouts along the road, causing delays for traffic in the area.
The two cars were later spotted again doing more burnouts along the McIvor Hwy, at Longlea Lane in Longlea, with around nine cars having to stop to avoid them.
The cars involved are believed to be a white Holden ute with stickers on the side and a gold Holden Commodore, with a white 4WD towing another car on a trailer believed to be with the pair but not taking part in the burnouts.
Police are urging anyone who witnessed the burnouts to contact Leading Senior Constable Brian Smith on 5448 1360.
