Participants travelled from across the Highlands, as well as Canberra and Campbelltown.

Southern Highlands Off Road R/C Car Club president Scott Hogan said the club had grown in numbers.

“Our first official meet was in March, and the numbers have grown steadily,” Hogan said. “It’s a family-friendly competition. We have two races for juniors. You usually one see one [at other car clubs] - that’s something we’re proud of.”

Hogan encouraged those who were interested in off road R/C car racing to come along to one of the club’s meets.

The next race meets will be held at Yerinbool Oval on January 28, 2018 and February 18, 2018.
