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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Summernats23 - CMEFRY goes up in flames
Can you imagine a more Apt numberplate for this car? CMEFRY (See Me Fry)
goes up in flames at the end of a massive smokefest. Grab the next issue of
Street Machine magazine to see some amazing pictures by Adam Morrissey from
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.
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.

UCSMOKE Attempts the Corkscrew
I'm sure there's some cones in there somewhere in amongst that smoke, but
Steven Loader doesn't seem to care. He obliterates the course with his
supercharged Holden Premier before limping off with one blown back tyre.
