HSVSS up in flames
An oldy but a goody. This highly modified twin tubo Walkinshaw owned by
Steve Santos goes up in flames when a fuel test at HP Heroes at Summernats
goes wrong. The fuel tester allowed fuel to hit the hot Exhaust manifolds not long after the car went
800hp+ at the tyres. The moral of the story is don't let anyone else touch
World's Biggest Burnout Fire!
Justen Brown absolutely torches his Holden ute at Mallanats with one of the
biggest fire shows we've seen.
And then he came out in the finals and do it all again.
Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited
along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished
but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure
it was right to go.
Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any
burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked

Jet Powered Van Fires Things Up
Crank up the volume for this one. This jet powered van not only puts on a

on the pad at Heathcote though. Usually it's the methanol cars that spew
the flames out the back. Nice little skid.
Peter Grmusa - ATRISK - Shed Party burnout
In a secret location the boys lock the gates and invite a few people to
come and join them in a night of mayhem and burnouts. Check out the volume
of smoke filling the area between the buildings. Awesome control.
Summernats 23 - BIGV8 - Awesome burnout
Leroy Rees is a crowd favourite wherever he goes but Summernats 23 wasn't
his year with a spun big end bearing putting an end to his Summernats
Watch for the flame out at the end. what you can't see is the methanol fire
that's on top of the blower. Watch for Leroy's reaction when he gets out of
