Local residents took up Nanango police’s challenge on Saturday to test out their driving skills on the South Burnett Go Kart Track.
Police officers did laps of the track at the same time as everyone else was having a go.
It was a police officer – Constable Tyler Roberts – who had clocked up the fastest time when southburnett.com.au dropped by.
Officer-in-charge of Nanango Police, Sergeant Jason Newton, said the day was all about promoting the road safety message in different ways to reach different people.
As well as having fun in the go karts, the charity day also included a “stopping distance” demonstration, which showed how extra speed is reflected in longer braking distances.
Ambulance and fire-fighters also “rescued” a driver from a wrecked vehicle.
Money raised on the day will assist Queensland Police Legacy.
