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.
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.
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
Summernats 26 Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters Top Ten
So here they are from 10 to 1 - the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters.
Mick Brasher, Adam Slorach, Gary Myers, Fred Watson, Steve Edsall, Craig
Whiddett, Gary Myers, Billy Seton, Matt Power & Peter Grmusa.
I'll do another video soon showing all 26 Burnout Masters.
HANFUL Goes All Out
Usually Mark Schwarz times his burnouts so he can drive from the pad
without popping the tyres (so he doesn't beat up the rear quarters), but
the new burnout track ate up his rear treads in half the time and then the
fireys shut him down after they reckon they saw some flames. It was nothing
major (just a little oil weeping from a rocker cover), Mark unbolted the
blower and drove the car all the way back to Queensland. What a cool
FEAR Lights Up Motorvation
Fred Watson with FEAR went for it at Motorvation 27 with the screaming
Monaro but it erupted in flames towards the end of the burnout and had the
crowd on their feet. Unfortunately having to stop put Fred well down the
results list, but up to that point it was a killer skid.
BLOWN Commodore Ute
Mark Schwirse took a standard SV6 Commodore ute and turned it into burnout
monster with the help of the boys from Taverna Brothers Engineering. It's
got a 540 big block with a 14/71 and methanol injection, and pumps out more
power than anyone needs.
But who cares about needs, this is all about wants.
Ben Bray's Burnout Ute
Remember this beast? Ben Bray's Holden VY SS ute. They built this car
specifically for burnout from a brand new Holden shell and filled it full
supercharged Hemi goodness. Here's some video of it cutting loose at
Supernats some years ago.
GM671 - Summernats Burnout Third Place
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.
FEAR Monaro at Summernats 26
We've been waiting to see this for years, but finally FEAR comes to
Summernats and the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters. Fred Watson Monaro
sounds amazing and he covered most of the pad, but obviously the Summernats
judges saw something we didn't because Fred only scored seventh with this
LS2PWR Needs No Blower
We can't help but be impressed every time this plain white VK hits the pad.
With a naturally aspirated 6-litre V8 it certainly has no problems putting
on a show.
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.
