It was a weekend of worn rubber at the Nyabing Go Kart Track, with vehicles far heavier than go karts taking to the tarmac. The Great Southern Street Machine Association held the Nyabing Drift and Motorkhana on June 18 and 19, when the roar of engines and screech of tyres filled the venue. More than 15 vehicles took part, with participants coming from as far away as Esperance and Serpentine to attend. The cars varied along with the attendees, ranging from vintage modified muscle cars to 1990s sedans. It was all for the fun of it, with no competitions held at the event. The fun came to an early end on Sunday because of the number of tyres participants had gone through. GSSMA organiser Christine Sargent said a great weekend was had by all. “The local community got behind the event, which is fantastic,” she said. “There is a lot of work we have to put into putting on events like this, but it was all worth it.” The Nyabing Primary School P&C hosted a fundraising sausage sizzle at the venue.
