Okay guys, sorry for the delay but I needed a short break to unwind after Summernats and had to cach up on some much needed sleep.
Here's the grand finale, with the finals for the Dyno and burnouts. Sorry i didn't get much more footage of day five but it was hectic enough getting all this. Hope you enjoyed the videos this year. Remember to SUBSCRIBE so you don't miss a thing.
YLDTOY Spits Flames at Summernats 26
Plenty of action in the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship at summernats 26.
Tony D with YLDTOY was throwing fuel out the cap when it whipped around on
the pad, and it didn't take long to light them up. It enough to DQ him.
I have no idea what's going on with the front end, it's almost like they
decided to run without front shocks.
EVILXA - SUMMERNATS 26 LIQUI-MOLY NATIONAL BURNOUT MASTER 2013
Peter Grmusa reckons that Powerhouse Engines are the reason why he's had
such a good year on the burnout pad. The engine has been ultra-reliable and
trouble free which frees Peter up to concentrate on driving. And drive it
Peter smoked out a quality field of entrants to take the Liqui Moly
National Burnout Masters Trophy for 2013 and take home the $15,000 cheque.
With the rest of his wins this year he's up around the $40K mark in terms
of winnings. Well done Peter.
Summernats 26 - Day Four
The action was hot on and off the track today. My plan was to check out
lots more than I did on Day four at Summernats but with other duties I
ended up missing more than I got. Sorry about the lack of show cars, and
cruising etc. The rain certainly put a damper on the nights activities with
the PPG Supercruise being cancelled, but they still had the fireworks and
finished off with Rose Tattoo.
2000hp Torana Wins Horsepower Heroes
Jake Edwards goes back to back at Summernats 26 with another win in horsepower Heroes with
1666rwhp (and equates to over 2000hp at the flywheel). The car runs a 496ci
big block with a massive 106mm Garrett turbo with EFI and methanol. It has run 7.88 at
179mph on the quarter, so it's not just a Dyno queen.
Check out how much Exhaust energy it
produces at the end of the video where it blew my second camera over even
though it was at least 8 feet away.
SS Ute Puts the BURN in BURNOUT
Not sure what happened here, but something definitely let go in the fuel
system of this Holden ute because it went up in a big way in the Liqui Moly
Gotta love the firey stomping out the fire with an extinguisher in his hand
TOASTR Minivan Rolls At Summernats 26
It was all action at the Liqui Moly Power Pit on Friday with TOASTR falling
over during Qualifying for the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship.
As you can see the driver was okay, stepping out through the windscreen
area within seconds of it going over, and yes the gearbox exploded after
the van flipped on it's side raining carnage everywhere.
BLWNLUX - World's Toughest Hilux
Forget the Top Gear Hilux. This has to be the toughest Toyota Hilux in the
world. Brett Battersby has jacked up this '87 Hilux and filled the engine
bay with 540 cubes of blown and injected big block Chev. Check out those
PROPSI Loses A Tailshaft And A Tray
Dave Pendlebury lost an engine last year at Summernats but this year he had
a new donk up front and was ready to go nuts. And what happened next was
It's still not really clear what's happened. Either a rim has dug into the
track or the tailshaft blew and dug into the track, (both are damaged and
there was a deep hole inthe track afterwards). The resulting thump has
dislodged the tray from the back end (how did that happen?) and left an
expensive repair bill.
It's was just one of the memorable moments from Summernast 26.
ZAM3IT - Summernats 26 Burnout Fire
Andrew Zammit scored a light burn on his hand after this massive fireball
at Summernats 26. It looks like something in the fuel system let go in the
engine bay and the whole front end went up shortly after. As usual the
Summernats fire team were quick to respond.
Summernats 26 - Day Two
Day two at Summernats didn't really kick off until midday with the Shannons
City Cruise down Northbourne where a good selection of cars cruised in
front of 30,000 people they reckon. Then the cruising fired up along with
judging and more scrutineering. Unfortunately the EPA knocked the schedule
around so we missed out on the burnouts, if there was any to be had. We
didn't hear or see any, but we saw plenty of tough rides. Tomorrow is going
to go off with burnouts, cruising, go-to-whoa, show 'n' shine, Dyno, the unveiling, Hilltop
Hoods and that Guinness World Record Attempt..

Summernats 25 Top Ten Burnouts
Here's the list that everyone has been waiting for, the Summernats 25 Top
Ten Burnouts. If you disagree, don't blame me, this is how the Sumemrnats
judges saw it.
Well done to those that finished in the top ten and better luck next year
