The annual Kukerin Creek Bed and Burnout Competition brought smoke, rubber and huge crowds from all over the State to Nenke Park during the September long weekend.

Organiser John Davidson said it was the biggest crowd he had seen at the event.

“It’s the biggest turnout we’ve ever had. We set our limit to 1200 people with COVID-19, and had just over 1100 spectators turn up,” he said.

“That kind of turnout is huge for our small community.

Cars of all shapes and sizes hit the pad and the creek bed in a bid to claim a title.

“It was a bit tough with the COVID-19 restrictions and getting everything in place in that regards, but once that was all sorted it was a great weekend,” Mr Davidson said. “The crowd was very well behaved — we didn’t have too many issues and everyone had fun.

“Everyone loves getting dirty in the mud and standing in the smoke.”
