Johnny Taverna Jnr gives it his all at Summernats 25 in the Liqui Moly Burnout Masters. Unfortunately he missed out on the Top Ten and didn't get a slot for the masters this year but we hear he's building a new car. Hopefully we'll see it at Summernats 26.
BEST BURNOUT EVER! SUMMERNATS GUINNESS WORLD RECORD BURNOUT!
Summernats 26 broke a Guinness World Record for the most amount of cars in
simultaneous burnout on January 4, 2013 in Canberra, Australia. When the
massive blanket of smoke eventually cleared, Chris Sheedy from Guinness
World Records told the 10,000 plus crowd that exactly 69 cars had managed
to complete a 30 second burnout. Sixty nine. That's a 'Nats kind of number.
Drivers came from all across Australia to fry their tyres together in this
historic event, some traveling thousands of kilometres from Western
Australian and Northern Queensland to take part in the rare feat.

Thank you to the drivers, staff and sponsors for making this incredible

shattered turbo to boot!

Clint Ogilvie Pops the Tyres... and the Airbags
Okay, so he didn't ACTUALLY pop the airbags, but he did rip off an airbag
line which stopped him from driving off the pad after this awesome burnout.
It's a pity because it probably would have put him into the top ten for the
