Burnouts and super charged engines rumbled through the grounds of Rutter Park Memorial Reserve last weekend as more than five thousand enthusiasts turned out for the annual Tooradin Tractor Show.
Event president Allyn Reeve said the day was jam-packed with kid’s amusements, helicopter rides, a roulette fly-over, modified and vintage tractor pull, and burn-out demonstrations.
“The burn-outs are very popular. As soon as they start up they come running to the fence line,” he said. They have a special rubber on their tyres creating different coloured smoke.”
He said there were about 104 trucks, 20 vintage tractors, 40 hot rods and 44 modified tractors on display.
“Overall it was very successful and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.”
Mr Reeve said the day wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for all the support they received from their loyal sponsors.
“Every year we are able to grow thanks to our sponsors,” he said, adding all proceeds were injected into local clubs, schools and various charities.
Star News photographer Gary Sissons went along to capture some of the day’s excitement.
