AUTOFEST DRIVING EVENTS
Autokana - Entrants line up to test their braking and handling skills of their vehicles with manoeuvres in forward and reverse and both left and right. This is a true test on one's ability to get things right or go down in a blaze of glory.
Go to Whoa - is another winner of side by side action with all that participate with entrants showing all the Go they can muster and in just 140 metres throwing out all the Anchors trying to tame their monster to pull up before they cross the dreaded finish line.
Grab A Flag - was designed on the traditional Spear A Spud competition that brings the passengers into the equation but instead of trying to spear those messy potatoes, we now just grab a nice new flag that is velcroed to a pole at each garage during the course.
Burnouts - The Burnout Competition is a highlight of the Autofest Events. With 100 Entrants fiercely competing for the bragging rights to be crowned Burnout King or Queen. Surrounded by thousands of cheering spectators, these chosen few go into battle in a high octane of high revving engines, shredding tyres and some may even catch alight on their way to glory or despair. This is car carnage at its best.
Presentation of Awards for the Driving Event/Burnout entrants will take place approximately 10:00pm Saturday night at the Speedway.
Please note: If you are unable to attend the award ceremony, please arrange to have someone you know there to collect any Awards on your behalf otherwise your Award will be forfeited.
