Three-peat for Neville

THE loud roars of high-powered machinery could be heard emanating out of Gatton on the weekend as a variety of race cars rolled into town for the 14th annual Gatton Street Sprints.

Cars from all over the state and south of the border travelled to Gatton for the event, eager to push their cars to the limit over two action-packed days of racing.

A major drawcard of the event, and always a crowd favourite, saw record crowds hit the circuit to embrace all the tyre screeching plumes of smoke typical of the Burnout competition on Saturday night.

"It went really well and we had the biggest crowd on Saturday night that we've ever had," event secretary Kay Paynter said.

"The street sprints are probably known as one of the most professional events going.

"And its one of the most popular events as far as street sprints go."

Neville Scott clocked a time of 34.86 to claim his third-straight overall Street Sprints win in his 1999 Subaru WRX.

Ray Vandersee in his 2009 Skelta G-Force claimed runner-up while Peter Corbett in a 2004 BMW was third.

Amy Smith was the fastest woman clocking a time of 40.55 in her 1989 Datsun 1200.
