Australian racing driver Craig Lowndes met with fans at Tyrepower Orange on Saturday, signing autographs and posing for selfies.
Mr Lowndes visited the franchise as a Tyrepower ambassador, to congratulate the Orange store on its outstanding performance in 2018.
Orange's emergency services also attended the family fun day, which raised money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
Mr Lowndes said with both his brother Greg and father Frank having beaten the disease, it was something he kept a close check on.
He said it'd been a number of years since he'd visited Orange.
"It's nice to come and check how the town's going," he said.
"Especially when we get to Bathurst every year and we're literally 40 minutes down the road."
Jordan and Karyn Parker lined up for about 40 minutes to meet the racing star.
They said they attend the Bathurst 1000 most years and the wait was "absolutely worth it."
Ashcroft's IGA donated $6000 to the Prostate Foundation and Tyrepower Orange donated $5000.
Tyrepower General Manager Hank Van Diggele said winning the international competition for Tyrepower of the year was a prestigious achievement in the industry.
