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.

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.





BLWNLUX - World's Toughest Hilux

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 interesting racing. 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 future.





NUCKINFUTS - Qualifying Crash at Summernats 25
So here's the lead up to the major incident at Summernats 25. Steve backs into the guard rail at high speed and that by itself isn't enough to get him disqualified. I don't get all aftermath but if you watch the go pro footage that Steve posted up ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egZ4hZsJkqc ) it shows him getting directed off the pad, which is also okay, but lighting the tyres up when the officials are on the pad is not okay, and that's pretty much what caused the problem I think.

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.





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."





Crazy Torana Hatchback Crash at Sydney Dragway
This Torana hatch has a bit of power - maybe too much for those skinny 10.5in tyres. Up front it's got a blown 'n' injected big block chev and the driver stays into the gas for little too long in the burnout. After a bit of pitside panel beating it was back out on the track for a shakedown pass.





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode Eight Part-1
Here it is, the long awaited Part Eight of our 13s for $1300 project. But unfortunately it's so big that I had to split it into two parts. This is some seriously heavy duty tech and not recommended for the diy home mechanic. I reckon you should leave this one up to the professionals. Please remember, working on cars is dangerous, and this part is probably more dangerous than most. This video is purely for entertainment purposes, I take no resposibility if someone tries to copy what I've done and hurt themselves.





Best burnout ever! Bandag Bullet
16 cylinders, 4 turbos, two Superchargers. The Bandag Bullet is a tyre frying machine. It can run the standing quarter in 12 seconds, and shoots flames from the ultra short Exhausts on demand.





Flaming Wheelstander Lights Up Gazzanats
The Aussie Bandit has no trouble lifting the front wheels thanks to a blown big block chev in the back. A few flames erupting from the rear end on the way back just adds to the spectacle.





Two Superchargers, No Waiting for smoke!!
I used to think this car was called 24TUFF for some reason, and with 2 blowers I guess that works as well, but it's actually T4TUFF and it is Tough with a capital T. Matt Power is the pilot of the flame throwing smoke monster, and even though it was a killer burnout Matt finished 13th overall, that's how tough the competition was.





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.
