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
NUMNUTZ - Who Needs a V8?
Not Adam Slorach, that's for sure. He takes it to the big V8's with his
little 202ci Holden six and shows them how it's done.
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
Holden Versus Ford at Lardner Park
The guys from Motorfest lined up a VR holden and a AU Falcon to see which
would last the longest with their fanbelts cut and half the oil drained. I
tipped that the Ford would outlast the Holden but I never imagined that it
would go for 30mins. Obviously no-one wants to see the full video, but I've
come up with a shorter version showing some of the highlights. The VR
lastes 2mins 47secs, while the AU Falcon went for 30min until they got
bored aand took the stick off the accelerator where it stalled. It's
rumoured that someone actually strated the AU up again later in the night.
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?
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!
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
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.
Corowa Autofest 2010
Here's an idea of what Corowa Autofest was like with Benny giving us a
quick run down.
Final figures were 169 entrants and a whopping 13,000 spectators, despite
the rain on Saturday.
There will be a two day drag event and show 'n' shine held over the ANZAC
day weekend, but racing doesn't start until late on Sunday so you can still
go pay your respects.
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.
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!
UCSMOKE Attempts the Corkscrew
I'm sure there's some cones in there somewhere in amongst that smoke, but
Steven Loader doesn't seem to care. He obliterates the course with his
supercharged Holden Premier before limping off with one blown back tyre.
Awesome F100 Burnout at UBC2
The Ultimate Burnout Challenge always brings out the best in the country
and this F100 is no exception. From memory this as a top ten performance,
and if it wasn't it damn well should have been.
I'm surpised we don't see more old pick-ups as burnout cars. They're
