■ Mad Max eat your heart out, as five Kar­ratha po­lice of­fi­cers pur­sued each other around the Speed­way track in stock ve­hi­cles wor­thy of an apoc­a­lyp­tic car chase.

It was the event be­fore the fi­nal cur­tain on Septem­ber 19 as reg­u­lar rac­ers at the Nickol Bay Speed­way do­nated their cars to the of­fi­cers.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Scott Clugston was the fastest of the bunch and said the idea was for a bit of fun for the of­fi­cers but to also con­nect with the com­mu­nity in at­ten­dance at the track.

“A po­lice of­fi­cer from Kar­ratha Sta­tion (who) is a reg­u­lar speed­way racer at the track or­gan­ised the event with other rac­ers, who do­nated the cars to be used,” he said.

“A lot of ef­fort was put in by the of­fi­cer and the Speed­way Club to en­sure things went smoothly. Kar­ratha Po­lice would like to send out a huge hank you to those driv­ers for let­ting po­lice use their cars and also to the Nickol Bay Speed­way for sup­port­ing this event.”
