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.
Summernats 25 - Day Three
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!
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 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.
Ultimate Burnout Challenge 2011
The third annual Ultimate Burnout Challenge was a success with over 100 of
Australia's best burnout machinery doing battle for a chance at the $10,000
first prize. Everyone who is anyone in the burnout scene was there to
compete or check out the action with the top ten from the days competition
shooting it out under lights for the big money. We won't tell you who won,
watch the video for that, but it was well deserved.
Enjoy the video, we've got much more action coming from UBC3 over the
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.
Performance Car Mania 2011
Performance Car Mania is quickly becoming the premiere modified car event
in Victoria, and it's not hard to see why. The organisers set everything up
to maximise the fun for the entrants. And if the entrants are happy then
the spectators are as well, because they get to see some of the coolest
cars around cutting loose. The new quarter mile strip was an interesting
addition and although it was a tad bumpy in places it made for some
We've squeezed as much action as we could into a reasonable time frame, but
keep your eyes open for planty more vids from this event in the near
Summernats 25 - Burnout Masters Qualifying
All the action from Burnout Masters Qualifying. There were 24 cars shooting
it out for a spot in the top ten and naturally there were more losers than
winners. I'd hate to be a judge against this group of tyre destroyers.
Blown Nova Goes 6.39 on 10.5 tyres
Frank Mamone's blown Chevy Nova is a wicked looking beast and it's got
plenty of grunt to match. Lately he's been racing the Hemi powered Nova inn
the 10.5 class and with some success too. He won at Sydney Dragway recent
at the APSA Pro Street Shootout.
WTOFIT - Crazy Rotary Powered Van Burnout
We popped in to the Good Fryday Burnout at Sydney Dragway to check out the
action and found this totally insane little rotary powered Suzuki van
ripping a few skids. Check out that glowing Exhaust. We've seen a few hot systems in our
time but never one that glowed so brightly.
Engine Explosion - Let The Pistons Hit The Floor
Think of the song by Drowning Pool and you'll see where we're headed. Mike
Roycroft unleashes destruction on his Valiant sedan unlike anything we've
ever seen before. How big a hole does it have to be to fit a complete
piston out of it? That's pretty wild.
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
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 Five
Sorry it took so long to get this one done guys but it's been a hectic
couple of days. I also didn't get to capture as much of the action as I
would have liked, but I did manage to get some pretty awesome footage.
Hope you enjoyed my summernats coverage, I enjoyed bringing it to you and I
hope to do it all again next year. Maybe I'll build myself a decent car to
take along as well. Enjoy the videos over the next few weeks.
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.
