MORE than 5,000 people packed DECA recently to enjoy three days of tyre frying action, for the fourth annual Xtreme Powerfest.

Over 400 hotted up cars kept spectators enthralled with track cruising displays, a show and shine event, king of tip-in competition, drift demos and the highly anticipated burnout competition.

Event promoter, Danny Grmusa said, “It was a good weekend. It exceeded expectations and it is growing every year.

“It was packed, especially on the Saturday. We had a good crowd and there was a great atmosphere. Everyone was excited and enjoyed it. Everyone is looking forward to the next show.

“We had a lot of support from the locals. The Shepparton Rotary Club came and lent a hand with the cooking and catering, and we gave a donation to them as well.

“The burnout competition was the feature event and everyone seemed to really enjoy it.”
