The competition winner burning rubber on the weekend.

Modified Cars with a different kind of horsepower had tyres burning and layers of rubber on the pad at Winton Motor Raceway during the weekend.

The Ultimate Burnout Challenge #10 was held for its second year in a row.

About 90 entrants from across Australia came to the Winton pad for hours of fun.

The growing sport, attracted more than 2000 people to the town to be covered with rubber and watch the coloured smoke.

Each competitor was given two chances to qualify for the ‘‘Golden Masters Ticket’’, which came down to a point difference.

Tim Brown in ‘‘CEMBLO’’ took out the win and is a step closer to the Masters Championship, which will be held in January next year at Summernats in Canberra.

Winton Motor Raceway’s next major event is the AMRS-Australian Motor Racing Championship on March 10 and 11.

Winton Motor Raceway operations manager Wayne Williams was thrilled with how the events went during the weekend.

‘‘This was our second year having this event and it was really successful again,’’ Williams said. ‘‘It’s a really different event for us, but we really enjoyed it and would love to have back again next year.

‘‘We had eight different forms of motorsport over the weekend, which really shows the diversity we have at Winton.’’
