Day two at Summernats didn't really kick off until midday with the Shannons City Cruise down Northbourne where a good selection of cars cruised in front of 30,000 people they reckon. Then the cruising fired up along with judging and more scrutineering. Unfortunately the EPA knocked the schedule around so we missed out on the burnouts, if there was any to be had. We didn't hear or see any, but we saw plenty of tough rides. Tomorrow is going to go off with burnouts, cruising, go-to-whoa, show 'n' shine, Dyno, the unveiling, Hilltop Hoods and that Guinness World Record Attempt..
Summernats 26 - Day One Preview
Yep it's that time of year again. Street Machine Summernats is held in
Canberra and it is Australia's biggest horsepower party. This year
is set to be bigger than ever with over 1700 cars. We take a look at the
new burnout pad and catch up with some of the rides coming through
Summernats 25 - Day One
Okay, so it's not actually day one because Summernats hasn't officially
started, but the cars are rolling through the gates in prepartion for
tomorrow when things really kick off. Some cool cars were coming through
scrutineering this afternoon, and unfortunately I couldn't film them all.
But I did manage to catch up with Rob Godfrey and his Summernats & SMOTY
winning TOYTON. It's back with a new donk and a few surprises.
Sorry about the dark video at the start, I though the new camera would be
better than that in low light. Oh well, another lesson learned. Come back
tomorrow and check out all the action from Thursday.

Who's in and who's out for Summernats 26? It's a kick arse field that will
be converging on Canberra in January. Let us know in the comments who you
think will win.
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.
Summernats 26 - Day Four
The action was hot on and off the track today. My plan was to check out
lots more than I did on Day four at Summernats but with other duties I
ended up missing more than I got. Sorry about the lack of show cars, and
cruising etc. The rain certainly put a damper on the nights activities with
the PPG Supercruise being cancelled, but they still had the fireworks and
finished off with Rose Tattoo.
Summernats 25 - Day Two
The first real day at Summernats 25 and while it's mostly a set up day
there was plenty of action in and around. The entry list is looking full
with at least 1380 pre-entries and today was much busier than this time
last year. enjoy the video guys, I'm going to bed.
Summernats 26 - Day Three
Friday at Summernats 26 started with a bang. First up there was the
Guinness World Record for Largest Simultaneous Burnout with 69 cars on the
pad at the same time, then it was into burnout qualifying with a massive
amount of action there. All the while there was constant cruising, show car
judging and Dyno
(which we'll try and get to today) and then it was time for the unveiling
in the Meguairs Pavilion and the Hilltop Hoods on the main stage - and I've
got to say it was the first time I'd heard them, but they were AWESOME!
Can't wait until Saturday.
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.
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
Summernats 23 - Day 2 -Thursday
Summernats was strangely quiet today for a Thursday, but there's a whole
bunch of killer cars around and more blowers than you can imagine. here's
just a small portion of some of the cars going through scrutineering and
some cruising. sorry, I didn't get to the judging hall today.
Better update tomorrow.

Having trouble loading this file up. hopefully this time it works.
Okay guys, I finally got this to load up. All the action from Friday with
unveiling, bands and plenty of cruising. What a huge day!
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.
