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.
Peter Grmusa's EVILXA lives up to it's name at Gazzanats with this evil
burnout at Gazzanats. watch as the flames start up front and then explode
through under the rear of his tricked out Falcon ute.
Front End Explodes Across the Finish Line
Imagine the shock Greg had when the front end of his Nitrous assisted Falcon disintergrated when he
crossed the line at the recent Hardtop Nationals. But he didn't let that
stop him; he continued to race the car throughout the afternoon and made it
all the way to the final. Too Bad there was no prizemoney to buy a new
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.

BURN MF BURN - Holden Ute Goes Up In Flames
Mark Schwirse's HJ Holden ute was a crowd pleaser at the Ultimate Burnout
Challenge with this huge flame show. After it caught fire the first time
and torched most of the paint, Mark elected to go again and torch it again.
then he came out again and set fire to it another time. Awesoem stuff.
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.
Scotty's Garage 2010 - Close Calls & Conflagrations
It's been a big year for fires and crashes (near misses anyway), and we
thought it was time to look back at all the craziness of 2010. With
Summernats just around the corner we'll be hitting even more events in
Crazy Camaro Burnout
I filmed this Camaro at
Melbourne's Easternats a few years back. One of the most awesome burnouts
I've ever seen. Turn the volume up for this one.
And don't forget to rate it.
Here's a video clip I created for Street Machine magazine. It was taken at
Summernats 19, an Australian Street Machine show
The car is a twin turbocharged
LS1powered HSV R8 Clubsport (based off the Holden Commodore platform) that
makes around 1200-1300hp at the rear wheels. On this particular run it
popped out an injector o-ring and sprayed the engine bay with fuel. You can
imagine what happens next.
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.
R33 Skyline Punches A Rod Out at Gazzanats
There's no doubt that Skylines are decent performance cars but every car
has it's limits - as the owner of this R33 found out at Gazzanats. I've
never seen a nearly complete conrod leave an engine before, usually they're
broken in two.
Harley Wheelstand - Hang on!
This Harley rider got a little more than he bargained for when he launched
at Sydney Dragway recently. He did well to stay on it and then he even got
back into the throttle. Bloody amazing.
13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 10
The road so far... and what's coming up next.
For those who haven't been following along, the whole idea was to build a
cheap drag car - something that could run 13-second quarter mile times for
under $1300. Well we've done that and there still more in the budget, so
now we're going for 12s.
Avalon $5k Burnout Finals
Avalon Speedway put up a healthy prize pool all the way back to fifth place
for their recent burnout comp. First prize was $5000 which should pay for a
few new tyres and a few drums of fuel.
We won't spoil the finish but there were some interesting results in the
