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
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 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 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
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
