I've had nothing but trouble posting this video so I hope you all enjoy it.
After dropping a valve in his Mustang Gary Myers put all his efforts into the Summernats Burnout Comp with the XA Coupe. He almost got there too ad showed that yuou don't need a blower to get on the podium.
The World's Most Colourful Burnout!
Peter Kitrozoski's burnout looked exactly like the colour of my Vodka
Slushie at Summernats 25. Just watching it makes me thirsty for more. Peter
also does a fair job of twirling the XE Falcon around the pad and with a
big power Clevo V8 under the hood he's got plenty of horsers at his
Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited
along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished
but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure
it was right to go.
Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any
burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked
So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.
WTOFIT - Crazy Rotary Powered Van Burnout
We popped in to the Good Fryday Burnout at Sydney Dragway to check out the
action and found this totally insane little rotary powered Suzuki van
ripping a few skids. Check out that glowing Exhaust. We've seen a few hot systems in our
time but never one that glowed so brightly.
Rod Hadfield's BeauTy
For those who don't know Rod, he's on of the most prolific Australian hod
rodder's of our time. He's built and owned more amazing cars than most of
us could dream of. Check out his highly modified '26 T-coupe. It's running
an Ardun headed flathead V8 and a host of cool gear found around the swap
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
to those that didn't. The field is getting tough out there.
Summernats 25 - Day Two
The first real day at Summernats 25 and while it's mostly a set up day
there was plenty of action in and around. The entry list is looking full
with at least 1380 pre-entries and today was much busier than this time
last year. enjoy the video guys, I'm going to bed.
Flaming Wheelstander Lights Up Gazzanats
The Aussie Bandit has no trouble lifting the front wheels thanks to a blown
big block chev in the back. A few flames erupting from the rear end on the
way back just adds to the spectacle.
Jet Powered Van Fires Things Up
Crank up the volume for this one. This jet powered van not only puts on a
good fire show but it also hauls arse down the track at Heathcote.
Unfortunately there was no time recorded but it looks pretty damn fast.
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
Ratrod Dodge Pickup Gets Toasty Warm
The old Dodge pickup was fired up in more ways than one at Avalon speedway.
It sounded like Denis has toned down the power output a tad - well it
didn't sound like it was going to eat small children this time - but still
delivered a kick arse performance with a bit of flame at the end.
WAZ308 - Summernats 25 Burnout Winner
How good is this burnout from Warren Eustace? Warren has always been a
little crazy behind the wheel but this year he managed to stay away from
the barriers and totally destroy a pair of tyres in the name of
entertainment. Were we entertained, you bet!
KRANKY Burns Down Kandos - Burnout Fire!!
We've seen plenty of burnouts end with a fire but we've never seen one
start with a fire. Rodney Waters HQ sedan goes up in flames right from the
start at Kandos. It's crazy insane.
