Albany Extra - - News - Michael Traill

An­thony Page is the Paul Kulker Memo­rial Burnout Cham­pion for the 2018 Nar­ro­gin Rev­heads, af­ter a suc­cess­ful week­end at Thomas Hogg Oval.

Or­gan­is­ers have cel­e­brated the event, which had an in­crease of num­bers through the gate as 1150 at­ten­dees watched on dur­ing the rub­ber burn­ing fes­ti­val.

“We had a great suc­cess­ful week­end, our gate num­bers were up, it was great to see all the hard work re­sult­ing in pos­i­tive feed­back from peo­ple en­ter­ing the events and spec­ta­tors,” or­gan­iser Paul Schutz said. “It’s good to see peo­ple come across from all over WA to the show. It was has­sle-free, which was great. All our lo­cal ser­vices sup­port us as well, which was great.”

Mr Schutz said around 100 vol­un­teers helped.

“It’s a com­mu­nity-run event to help fundraise for com­mu­nity clubs that are in­volved,” he said.
