FRYZEM Gets Fried at Gazzanats 2011

James North might need to rename his car FRYZME (Fries me) after this huge fire at Gazzanats. The heat from the flames was ferocious, even with the car so far away, but the awesome fire fighters standing trackside were on the case quickly.

MUT308 Erupts in Flames at Gazzanats
The new injection combination seems to be working well on Adam Mutimer's VL Commodore, it looks to be running better than ever. But it still has a couple of surprises up it's sleeve as it showed at Gazzanats with this sudden fireball during burnout qualifying. Keen eyed viewers might notice that Adam wasn't behind the wheel.





WONAGO Goes Off at Gazzanats
We tried something a little different this time by mounting a small Kodak camera off the off Justen Brown's headlight on his WONAGO Commodore ute. It might not be as good as the Go Pro cameras but it looks pretty damn good I reckon. Was an awesome machine, and some awesome footage too I reckon.





SOLID Wins Gazzanats Blown Burnouts
It was a SOLID win from Danny Smith at Gazzanats with his blown small block Chevy Pick-up. Check out the volume of smoke! It was huge and it had the crowd screaming for more. With trucks like this it's a wonder we don't see more pick-ups built as burnout machines.





Jamboree 2011 - Cool Cars, Hot Women
I decided to stick my head in for a look at Jamboree 2011 while on holidays in Queensland recently. Cool cars and hot women make this event a mandatory addition to everyone's event list. There's a couple little editing glitches in the video, but it took so long to render and upload, I decided to let them be.





Ford Coupe Club of Australia Hardtop Nationals 2011
We take a look at the Ford Coupe Club of Australia Hardtop Nationals. For those that don't know, these Australian built coupes/hardtops were built from 1972 through to 1979 across the XA/XB/XC model ranges. The most famous coupe is probably the Mad Max car used in the first two mad max movies, and there's a replica of that car featuring in this video. There was also a coupe that featured in Love The Beast - Eric Bana's ode to his own Falcon Coupe which he has owned from way before he became famous. Unfortunately I couldn't fit all the cars in the video but I squeezed a fair few in, I hope you all enjoy it. Music in the centre section comes from Kevin MacLeod at http://incompetech.com/ the tune is call Surf Inspector





NUKINFUTS Gemini - How to get banned from Summernats!
All right guys, things got a bit heated yesterday and people started posting personal details and threatening violence. I've never had to shut down comments before, but I had to do it yesterday. I'm opening up comments again, but keep it sensible please. If it gets stupid again, I'll shut it down for good. Okay guys, this is a very controversial topic. Here's the unedited footage of the Steve Nogas incident. What seems to have happened is that the driver Steve Nogas was told he was disqualified for reason stemming back to his qualifying burnout (disobeying a fire mashal), he forced his car through a group of officials and on to the track, and after the burnout he was escorted from the track and his car towed away. Could have been handled a little better from both sides, but forcing your way on to the track is definitely the wrong way to go. I've posted this video to provide a little clarity to the incident. Summernats statement 11/01/2012 SUMMERNATS STATEMENT ON BURNOUT TRACK INCIDENT 11 January 2012 There was an incident at the burnout track on Sunday 8/1/12 involving entrant Steve Nogas in NUKINFUTS. Steve was seen to forcibly drive his car through officials who were instructing him not to drive at the time, and then did an unauthorised burnout. He was removed by security at the end of his drive and was immediately given a life-time ban by management. The incident was witnessed first hand by Summernats management including the owners. The owners said "We made the immediate life-time ban decision for two reasons. The first and most important reason was we saw a guy place our burnout management team in great physical danger. We were very upset by that. Second, we were furious that all our efforts to establish burnouts as a legitimate motor sport could have been ruined in one moment. This is not just about the Summernats. There are a lot of people out there who want to see burnout events banned across Australia, and all competitors and event promoters alike have a responsibility to protect this awesome sport." Summernats management has reviewed both the incident and the punishment post event, consulting the rules and taking submissions from burnout track officials and the driver. Following this process, the Summernats have revised their decision and have released their official position. "Steve Nogas' life time ban has been suspended on review. He is however banned as an entrant from Summernats 26. As such, Steve is ineligible to enter as a competitor at Summernats 26. However, the Burnout Chief Marshall has invited Steve to make amends with the burnout crew and work alongside them at Summernats 26. This will give Steve a better appreciation of the issues facing officials managing this sport." Summernats gave the following reason for the review. "Our own assessment of the rules led us to the opinion there was no explicit statement about life bans for such behaviour. As such, we felt it was only fair to review the decision. We took into account the fact that Steve has since been extremely apologetic about what he did and has accepted complete responsibility for his actions. He has made several public and private statements expressing his regret. We also considered the intent of his actions. Whilst the consequences could have been severe, we accepted Steve's statement that there was no intent or premeditation to his actions. The one year ban is a consensus decision between Summernats management and the burnout competition chief steward. Steve has gratefully accepted this decision. "The Summernats stands by the actions of our burnout crew. Our crew do an incredible job under very trying conditions. Their primary mission is to maintain the safety of competitors and the audience. Our burnout crew do a superb job and should be commended for their professionalism. "We have learnt important lessons from this incident, and Summernats will be taking a number of measures to ensure this doesn't happen again." Steve Nogas says, "What I've done there is totally out of character for me and totally wrong for any entrant to do. I'm deeply sorry for the way I conducted myself." Summernats management stated, "We want to be very clear. The only reason we re-considered the decision was that our rules were not explicit on life-time bans. Moving forward, the rules will be very explicit. If a driver deliberately and maliciously ignores the instructions of officials on the start line of the burnout pad placing them and the competition in jeopardy, that driver will receive a life-time ban. Apologies after the fact will not be considered. Now we all know the rules, and these will be very clearly laid out in the Participation Guide for Summernats 26 and beyond."

Okay, so they're not all Mopars but we lead the charge with this tough sounds turbocharged V8 Chrysler at Gazzanats in Adelaide. Powerskids for All





BLOWN Holden Ute DOESN'T Catch Fire at Gazzanats
I fully expected Mark to set fire to his ute again like he did at UBC3 but he managed to leave the pad unscorched this time even though he did beach it on the curbing at the end. Words can not describe what a beast this ute is - I'll leave it to the video to do the talking.





Blown Dodge Pick-Up Roars
There's plenty cool about squeezing a blown small block in the front of an old rusty dodge pick-up. By the way, this was one of the first times out for this new engine combo, which is why Denis seems a little tentative with it.





Australia's Quickest Nitrous Car - Wilson/Kryger Camaro
Edit: It's been pointed out there might be a couple of quicker Nitrous cars in Australia but regardless this car is pretty impressive so I'll let the title stand. I'm pretty sure this is Australia's quickest Nitrous car, although if I'm wrong someone will let me know. With a monster motor and massive gas kit the car runs some seriously quick times considering it's only on 10.5 rubber. It's still early days for the black Camaro, owned by Johnny Wilson and Simon Kryger, who knows how fast they'll get it going?

UCSMOKE Goes Hard At Gazzanats
With everyone catching fire around him it was unusual to see Steve Loader NOT catch fire on the pad at Gazzanats. Which is just as well because I think Steve is getting tired of painting the car. As usual though - killer burnout!

James North loves his blower... and that's all we've got to say about that. :)
