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.
World's Biggest Burnout Fire!
Justen Brown absolutely torches his Holden ute at Mallanats with one of the
biggest fire shows we've seen.
And then he came out in the finals and do it all again.
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
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.
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.
YLDTOY Spits Flames at Summernats 26
Plenty of action in the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship at summernats 26.
Tony D with YLDTOY was throwing fuel out the cap when it whipped around on
the pad, and it didn't take long to light them up. It enough to DQ him.
I have no idea what's going on with the front end, it's almost like they
decided to run without front shocks.
UNLOAD Catches Fire At Summernats 26
It's been one of the most highly anticipated cars of 2012 featuring on
several magazine covers, winning show awards and generally blowing minds.
Steve Loader UNLOAD Commodore belongs to a new category of cars I like to
call PRO BURNOUT - It's a burnout machine with a showcar finish.
But Steve being Steve, he couldn't keep it away from the burnout track. He
put it on the pad both Friday and Sunday and did spectacular shows both
days, but check out the fire after his Sunday skid. Luckily it didn't seem
to damage the paint, but it looked pretty bad at the time. Hopefully we'll
get to see more of this car on the pad soon.
Summernats 26 - Day Five
Okay guys, sorry for the delay but I needed a short break to unwind after
Summernats and had to cach up on some much needed sleep.
Here's the grand finale, with the finals for the Dyno and burnouts. Sorry i
didn't get much more footage of day five but it was hectic enough getting
all this. Hope you enjoyed the videos this year. Remember to SUBSCRIBE so
you don't miss a thing.
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.
Too Much Horsepower For The Dyno
At the recent Totally Exhausted Dyno Day they tried to Dyno test Billey Seton's
SILLY HQ sedan. But massive traction issues meant they weren't getting the
numbers the car should have been getting. the engine has been Dynoed at 1300hp but the best
they could get was just over 450rwhp before it erupted in wheelspin again.
Then after it was all over they took it out the back for some donut action
and snapped some wheel studs off.
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.
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.
SS Ute Puts the BURN in BURNOUT
Not sure what happened here, but something definitely let go in the fuel
system of this Holden ute because it went up in a big way in the Liqui Moly
Gotta love the firey stomping out the fire with an extinguisher in his hand
UNLOAD Skids at Summernats 26
How good is this beast. Not only did it make it into the Elite Hall at
Summernats but it also hit the burnout pad in style. After this they
cleaned it up and put it in the Top 60 Hall for the big show.
Summernats 23 - Burnout Fail!
We see plenty of good burnout at Summernats every year, what about the ones
that aren't so good?
More often than not the crowd or judges will ask them to move on, or some
of them get the hint themselves. No doubt they'll all be back next year
bigger and better.
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
