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 good. So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.

National Burnout Masters Finals - Summernats 24
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters at Summernats 24 was the most kick arse collection of burnout warriors ever seen in this country. It started with 18 cars which was quickly whittled down to just five contenders; Matt Power, Peter Gray, Steve Sines, Mick Brasher and Gary Myers. This video just shows a small part of each burnout in the top five, I'll post the whole of each individual burnout in the next couple days.





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.





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."

Summernats 25 - Day Five
Sorry it took so long to get this one done guys but it's been a hectic couple of days. I also didn't get to capture as much of the action as I would have liked, but I did manage to get some pretty awesome footage. Hope you enjoyed my summernats coverage, I enjoyed bringing it to you and I hope to do it all again next year. Maybe I'll build myself a decent car to take along as well. Enjoy the videos over the next few weeks.

HQ383 Lights Up The Pad! Burnout Winner Valvoline Springnats 2010
What can you say about this burnout except wow! Just to update, Mick sullivan owns this HQ Premier and it's powered by a 383 Holden Stroker with a 6/71 blower. The fire was caused by a new methanol injection system he was trialling in an attempt to keep the blower cool. The engine itself runs on petro,l but the methanol is there just to help cool the intake charge. This video illustrates the dangers of having your Exhausts exiting too close to the tyres (steel belts cause sparks) while running on methanol. If you run meth, it's adviseable to run your pipes all the way to the back bumper.

Here's a look at the contenders for Summernats 25 (unfortunately no footage of 383AXE & MRHQ2U), with some of their killer performances in 2012. Who do you reckon will win? Naturally, we'll be there capturing all the action, but make sure you get along to see it live yourself and then relive the action later on Scotty's Garage. Cya there!





TOYTON - Unblown to Blown in Five Minutes
Okay, we sped the footage up a little but in all honesty Rob Godfrey went from an unblown big block to an 8/71 combo in less than 20 minutes. For those that don't know the car it is one of Australia's top Street Machines, winning both Street Machine of the year and Summernats Grand Champion. with the only naturally aspirated 632ci combo it made 1050rwhp and run eights on the quarter. The new blown 502ci combo is more cruisable, but makes less power. Looks bloody awesome though. The girls appeared as soon as Rob fired the car up. Very cool.





Summernats 25 - Burnout Masters Qualifying
All the action from Burnout Masters Qualifying. There were 24 cars shooting it out for a spot in the top ten and naturally there were more losers than winners. I'd hate to be a judge against this group of tyre destroyers.





BLOWN is Summernats 26 Burnout Champion
After debuting (and setting fire to) his new ride at Springnats 2012, Mark Schwirse has scored the win of his burnout career with the top prize at Summernats 26 in the Liqui Moly Summernats Burnout Championship. Naturally he scores a slot in next years Burnout Masters and the respect of all burnout loving aussies. Well done dude.
