Blown Chevy Powered Corolla cuts lose
Summernats 23 Burnout Champion Mick Brasher was a favourite at Avalon's
Ultimate Burnout Challenge but he threw it all away after attemping two
donuts at the startline. Getting the wheels off into the dirt pretty much
killed any chance of a top ten spot but he stayed itno it until the end and
deliver the kind of performance we've come to expect.
Summernats 23 - Top Ten Burnouts
Actually it's the top eleven seeing that four entrants finished on the same
points. These were the official placings and we count them down from 11 to
Ultimate Burnout Challenge 2 - NUMNUTZ gives us a flame show
We already uploaded one supercharged six powered ute today so we figured we
might as well upload another. Check out Adam Slorach's effort from the
second Ultimate Burnout Challenge at Avalon Speedway. As good as this
burnout was it still only scored 14th overall - that's how good the rest of
the competition was!
Gazzanats Mildura Superskids
Plenty of superskid action from Mildura Gazzanats. Craig Whiddett (CUTSIK)
won, with Jason McIntosh (RACENU) second and Brett Gray with BROLS1 in
UBC2 Winning Burnout - Don Elphick ONBOC
This is how you win $10,000!
Don Elphick took home the big cheque at UBC2 after this awesome tyre frying
smoke show. With wins at several big comps under his belt Don is becoming a
force to be reckoned with in aussie burnout circles.
Who knows? Is Don going to be the next Summernats burnout champ? He's got
the form and with a new engine on the way, he's got to be one of the
favorites. Do any betting agencies take bets on Summernats?
HG5LTR gives it Some Revs at UBC2
I'm pretty sure this is Shane Taylor (correct me if I'm wrong) in his HG
Brougham HG5LTR. If the number plates are right, he's running a Holden v8
and he certainly does not spare the horses during this awesome display.
This burnout was good enough for 9th place at the Ultimate burnout
Challenge and Shane is certainly getting noticed by the right people. Look
out for more from this guy in the future.

Can you imagine a more Apt numberplate for this car? CMEFRY (See Me Fry)
goes up in flames at the end of a massive smokefest. Grab the next issue of

Summernats23 - Pink Supercharged ute
How can somehing look so tough and so girly at the same time? No matter how
it looks this ute does an awesome burnout before stalling as it leaves the
pad, but it still made the finals.
Robbie Bolger Drifting
Here's some incar and outside footage of Robbie Bolger drifting the Capa
Ute. The Ute runs a 1000hp Gen-III V8 with a Vortech YSI Supercharger...it's insane
Revfest - FORZA Blown Alcohol Chev V8 singing
Another awesome burnout from Forza's Sal Mancuso. The blown HR holden rips
it up until Sal gets lost and stalls it, but they fire the beast up again
and Sal tears it up again. Great stuff!
Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited
along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished
but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure
it was right to go.
Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any
burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked
So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.
UCNBLO - Crush, Kill, Destroy and Burn
Talk about a crazy burnout. Travis Wilkins goes nuts at Avalon Speedway and
cleans up the useless fence, smashes up his very tidy Torana, and sets fire
to the blown engine for a finale. And the crowd goes wild!
