Members of Shepparton District Car Club had clouds of dirt billowing into the air as they tested their driving skills during the weekend’s autocross event at Mooroopna.
Club president Charlie Brown said the khanacross was the club’s opening event for the year.
Mr Brown said the focus of the 28-competitor event had been the club’s seven junior members, aged between 13 and 16.
‘‘That’s what we like to promote and the improvement in the juniors from last year to this year has just been exceptional,’’ he said.
‘‘They like driving and it’s an excellent opportunity to learn car control before they actually get their L-plates.’’
Mr Brown said the club already had several events planned for the year, including another khanacross this month.
‘‘It’s just a great, fun day. Our club is noted for a very laidback, fun attitude,’’ he said.
