JAKES MYERS First Burnout - the tradition continues
We've been waiting to see young Jake do his first burnout for a while and he got his chace at Dubbo during the NSW Pro Burnouts.
Not only did he do well, he actually beat his old man Gary and first fourth behind three current Burnout Masters. Not a bad effort for his first outing.
Clint FIRES UP at NSW Pro Burnouts
It was great to see Clint Ogilvie back on the burnout track after such a
long break. There's no blower on the Torana now, Clint has elected to go
for naturally aspirated power with the 330 cube Holden pumping out nearly
600hp with big revs.
Unfortunately he had to cut his burnout short at Dubbo with this not so
small fire but it couldn't have been too serious because he drove it off
the pad afterwards.
CUTSIK Comes Third at Dubbo
Craig Whiddett is having a pretty good year. He came 5th at Summernats,
second at Kandos and third at the NSW Pro Burnouts in Dubbo. It's not a bad
thing either with an EFI 6-litre with a factory alloy block under all that
EVILXA - Revamped and Smokin' Hot
EVILXA was looking a bit sad after hitting a barrier at Summernats and a
few burnout fires (we show fire footage from Gazzanats), so Peter Grmusa
has given the XA Ute a birthday and covered it in a mix of PPG Vibrance
(Key Lime green & white by Auto Passion) and vinyl wrap (by Bling Designs).
He invited us out to watch his debut burnout at a small gathering at an
undisclosed location. As you can see he's got plenty of grunt thanks to the
Powerhouse-built 530ci big block, but still manages to control it
beautifully in the tight confines of the space provided.
UNLOAD Flames Up Again at NSW Pro Burnouts
When you see just how nice Steve Loaders UNLOAD is then it's hard to
believe he actually does burnouts with it. But not only does he do
burnouts, he also seems to set it alight pretty regularly. I think the
score is three out of four so far.
EVILXA Finishes Second at Dubbo
NSW Pro Burnouts saw a reverse of the finishing order at Summernats with
Peter Grmusa finishing second behind Matt Power. Big blocks seem to be
taking all the wins these days.
T4TUFF Burns The Guardrails at Kandos
With rain closing in the Kandos organisers decided to go with Saturday's
qualifying results, which left entrants to have some fun on Sunday.
Matt Power went nuts with his Holden One-Tonner and gave the fans a huge
fire show that rivalled KRANKY's fire from last year.
WONAGO Tries For The Perfect Flame Job
Justen Brown was also a busy man at Motorvation with two cars in the
burnouts. One in the Open class, and one in the Blown class. This was his
Blown class entry WONAGO which scored third place in the finals after this
And yes I did run away like a little girl every time he pointed the back
end at me. :)
NSW PRO BURNOUTS - February 2nd 2013
NSW PRO BURNOUTS. Make sure you don't miss the biggest burnout comp in NSW
with over $25,000 up for grabs. It's happening at Morris Park Speedway in
Dubbo on February 2nd 2013. Check it out on Facebook.
T4TUFF Wins NSW Pro Burnouts
How would you like to score $10,000 for a burnout? That's what Matt Power
did at Dubbo for the NSW Pro Burnouts when he took on the best from NSW,
VIC and QLD. The low and mean Holden tonner needed alot of work after it's
fire last weekend at Kandos but Matt hooked in and got it sorted and
without a doubt the blown 540 big block was the loudest engine on the day.
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.
