Summernats 26 - Day Two

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 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.





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.





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.

NUKINFUTS Gemini - How to get banned from Summernats!
All right guys, things got a bit heated yesterday and people started posting personal details and threatening violence. I've never had to shut down comments before, but I had to do it yesterday. I'm opening up comments again, but keep it sensible please. If it gets stupid again, I'll shut it down for good. Okay guys, this is a very controversial topic. Here's the unedited footage of the Steve Nogas incident. What seems to have happened is that the driver Steve Nogas was told he was disqualified for reason stemming back to his qualifying burnout (disobeying a fire mashal), he forced his car through a group of officials and on to the track, and after the burnout he was escorted from the track and his car towed away. Could have been handled a little better from both sides, but forcing your way on to the track is definitely the wrong way to go. I've posted this video to provide a little clarity to the incident. Summernats statement 11/01/2012 SUMMERNATS STATEMENT ON BURNOUT TRACK INCIDENT 11 January 2012 There was an incident at the burnout track on Sunday 8/1/12 involving entrant Steve Nogas in NUKINFUTS. Steve was seen to forcibly drive his car through officials who were instructing him not to drive at the time, and then did an unauthorised burnout. He was removed by security at the end of his drive and was immediately given a life-time ban by management. The incident was witnessed first hand by Summernats management including the owners. The owners said "We made the immediate life-time ban decision for two reasons. The first and most important reason was we saw a guy place our burnout management team in great physical danger. We were very upset by that. Second, we were furious that all our efforts to establish burnouts as a legitimate motor sport could have been ruined in one moment. This is not just about the Summernats. There are a lot of people out there who want to see burnout events banned across Australia, and all competitors and event promoters alike have a responsibility to protect this awesome sport." Summernats management has reviewed both the incident and the punishment post event, consulting the rules and taking submissions from burnout track officials and the driver. Following this process, the Summernats have revised their decision and have released their official position. "Steve Nogas' life time ban has been suspended on review. He is however banned as an entrant from Summernats 26. As such, Steve is ineligible to enter as a competitor at Summernats 26. However, the Burnout Chief Marshall has invited Steve to make amends with the burnout crew and work alongside them at Summernats 26. This will give Steve a better appreciation of the issues facing officials managing this sport." Summernats gave the following reason for the review. "Our own assessment of the rules led us to the opinion there was no explicit statement about life bans for such behaviour. As such, we felt it was only fair to review the decision. We took into account the fact that Steve has since been extremely apologetic about what he did and has accepted complete responsibility for his actions. He has made several public and private statements expressing his regret. We also considered the intent of his actions. Whilst the consequences could have been severe, we accepted Steve's statement that there was no intent or premeditation to his actions. The one year ban is a consensus decision between Summernats management and the burnout competition chief steward. Steve has gratefully accepted this decision. "The Summernats stands by the actions of our burnout crew. Our crew do an incredible job under very trying conditions. Their primary mission is to maintain the safety of competitors and the audience. Our burnout crew do a superb job and should be commended for their professionalism. "We have learnt important lessons from this incident, and Summernats will be taking a number of measures to ensure this doesn't happen again." Steve Nogas says, "What I've done there is totally out of character for me and totally wrong for any entrant to do. I'm deeply sorry for the way I conducted myself." Summernats management stated, "We want to be very clear. The only reason we re-considered the decision was that our rules were not explicit on life-time bans. Moving forward, the rules will be very explicit. If a driver deliberately and maliciously ignores the instructions of officials on the start line of the burnout pad placing them and the competition in jeopardy, that driver will receive a life-time ban. Apologies after the fact will not be considered. Now we all know the rules, and these will be very clearly laid out in the Participation Guide for Summernats 26 and beyond."





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.





TOASTR Minivan Rolls At Summernats 26
It was all action at the Liqui Moly Power Pit on Friday with TOASTR falling over during Qualifying for the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship. As you can see the driver was okay, stepping out through the windscreen area within seconds of it going over, and yes the gearbox exploded after the van flipped on it's side raining carnage everywhere.





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 Power Pit. Gotta love the firey stomping out the fire with an extinguisher in his hand - WTF?





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 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.

EVILXA - Breaks An Ignition Lead
If you're wondering why EVILXA sounds off-song in this video it's because one of the leads broke just before the burnout. Peter pushed on through and still pumped out plenty of smoke, but we were wincing the whole time waiting for it to lunch itseld.





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.





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 smoke show.





KILLA-B Camaro Hits the Burnout
It's been one of the most high anticipated burnout cars in recent year. Steve Nogas and his KILLA-B Camaro hit the pad at Springnats 2012. With 632 cubes up front under an insanely huge 16/71 blower, it's got way more power than it needs. This is footage of his Sunday burnout. If you're wondering about the damage to the front quarter, he gave the wall a solid tap on Saturday.
