The Ultimate display of POWER - Best powerskids of 2010
Powerskids were started by Gup in his Powercruise events and have fast
become one of the most popular events for both spectators and entrants.
It's certainly one of the more spectacular driving events to watch.
It is also the ultimate display of horsepower. Anyone can
rattle off numbers, however powerskids require cars to have big horsepower and to be setup
We have selected the best Powerskids from the events below(all we attended
that had a powerskid comp) :
- Gazza Nationals
- Winton Performance Car Mania
- Queensland Powercruise
- Sydney Powercruise
- Summer SKidfest
727 Cubic Inches and Australian Tire Smoke! - Roadkill Episode 10
On this episode of Roadkill, there's endless burnouts and powerskids as
David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD magazine are on the loose in
Australia with 727ci of Sonny Leonard hemi-headed madness. The massive
big-block makes 1,275 horsepower between the
fenders of a 2006 Holden HSV VE Clubsport R8. In American, that's like a
Pontiac G8. This display of overkill is the product of "Gup," the promoter
of the Powercruise series of events in Australia, New Zealand, and
Minnesota (USA) where tire smoke is the rule. On the show, you'll see tire
fire from Gup's infamous "Elvis" '74 Holden HQ, from his 727ci Clubbie,
from a 1,500ci diesel semi truck, and from Downunder's most throttle-happy
petrolheads on both coasts. The miracle is that Freiburger and Finnegan
aren't still in an Aussie jail. Of course, that might have been less
punishing than the 30-hour flight home.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
