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 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 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 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 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.
