11,000rpm Burnout at UBC2
UPDATE - Talked to Harry about this video the other day. He confirmed that the tacho recall read 11,200rpm and he also told me the engine didn't die, it sheered the rollpin in the distributor and put the timing way out. which is why it turned over but wouldn't fire properly. the engine did another 3 or 4 shows after this and even then it only needed bearing and valve springs. There's no mechanical sympathy here. Listen to this thing scream when Harry Haig gets into it during the second annual Ultimate Burnout Challenge held at Avalon Speedway. The engine sounds more like something you'd hear in a pro-stock car than on the burnout track. It's no surprise that the engine can't handle that kind of sustained rpms but it's still amazing to watch and listen to.
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.
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.
Clint Oglivie Demo at UBC2
As one of the promoters of the Ultimate Burnout Challenge Clint wasn't in the running for any of the prizes but that didn't stop him from coming out and tearing up a few set of tyres just for fun. The engine is a supercharged Holden V8 and the car is an LC Torana.
