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.
The World's Most Colourful Burnout!
Peter Kitrozoski's burnout looked exactly like the colour of my Vodka Slushie at Summernats 25. Just watching it makes me thirsty for more. Peter also does a fair job of twirling the XE Falcon around the pad and with a big power Clevo V8 under the hood he's got plenty of horsers at his disposal.
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.
KRANKY Tries to Burn Down Summernats
Before KRANKY burned down Kandos he tried his best to burn down Sumemrnats as well. And it was after this burnout that I got clocked in the head by a bit of rubber.
Summernats 26 Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters Top Ten
So here they are from 10 to 1 - the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters.
Mick Brasher, Adam Slorach, Gary Myers, Fred Watson, Steve Edsall, Craig Whiddett, Gary Myers, Billy Seton, Matt Power & Peter Grmusa.
I'll do another video soon showing all 26 Burnout Masters.
SKDKID - Crazy Black VN Calais
Pretty sure this injected VN Calais is packing a centrifugal Supercharger (looks like a reverse mount Procharger) and it certainly has plenty of power. the beauty of centirfugal blowers is they don't heat the intake charge as much and they make more power the higher you rev. Perfect for a burnout car.
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.
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.
Crazy Camaro Burnout
I filmed this Camaro at Melbourne's Easternats a few years back. One of the most awesome burnouts I've ever seen. Turn the volume up for this one.
And don't forget to rate it.
T4TUFF - Summernats 25 Burnout Masters Second Place
After qualifying for the top five last year Matty Power was looking strong for a big finish at summernats 24, but an engine fire cut things short and he came fifth. This year there were no fires, but there was plenty of smoke as he destroyed several pairs of tyres to finish second overall. Killer stuff.
Summernats 25 Liqui-Moly Burnout Masters Preview.
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters is the biggest thing to hit the Australian burnout scene in the last twelve months. Last year showed just how awesome this concept can be and for 2012 at Summernats 25 it's going to be back bigger and better than ever. Prepare yourself for pure awesomeness.
Here's a look at the contenders for Summernats 25 (unfortunately no footage of 383AXE & MRHQ2U), with some of their killer performances in 2012. Who do you reckon will win?
Naturally, we'll be there capturing all the action, but make sure you get along to see it live yourself and then relive the action later on Scotty's Garage. Cya there!
Summernats 25 Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters Finals
Here's some of the action from the Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters finals at Summernats 25. We've shown the guys in the order that they finished from last to first. The winner was Donny Elphick, followed by Matty Power and Jason Earle in third place.
KINGER Snaps The Snout Off The Crank
Steve Sines made a huge haul over to Summernats 25 all the way from Perth with his wife and baby. The car looks absolutely fantastic too after being fitted with new tubs and given an eye searing shade of blue. Unfortunately front off the crank sheared off at the end of his burnout in Burnout Master qualifying - an unfortunate result after such a killer skid.
