When you see just how nice Steve Loaders UNLOAD is then it's hard to believe he actually does burnouts with it. But not only does he do burnouts, he also seems to set it alight pretty regularly. I think the score is three out of four so far.
Clint FIRES UP at NSW Pro Burnouts
It was great to see Clint Ogilvie back on the burnout track after such a
long break. There's no blower on the Torana now, Clint has elected to go
for naturally aspirated power with the 330 cube Holden pumping out nearly
600hp with big revs.
Unfortunately he had to cut his burnout short at Dubbo with this not so
small fire but it couldn't have been too serious because he drove it off
the pad afterwards.
EVILXA Finishes Second at Dubbo
NSW Pro Burnouts saw a reverse of the finishing order at Summernats with
Peter Grmusa finishing second behind Matt Power. Big blocks seem to be
taking all the wins these days.
CUTSIK Comes Third at Dubbo
Craig Whiddett is having a pretty good year. He came 5th at Summernats,
second at Kandos and third at the NSW Pro Burnouts in Dubbo. It's not a bad
thing either with an EFI 6-litre with a factory alloy block under all that
JAKES MYERS First Burnout - the tradition continues
We've been waiting to see young Jake do his first burnout for a while and
he got his chace at Dubbo during the NSW Pro Burnouts.
Not only did he do well, he actually beat his old man Gary and first fourth
behind three current Burnout Masters. Not a bad effort for his first
T4TUFF Wins NSW Pro Burnouts
How would you like to score $10,000 for a burnout? That's what Matt Power
did at Dubbo for the NSW Pro Burnouts when he took on the best from NSW,
VIC and QLD. The low and mean Holden tonner needed alot of work after it's
fire last weekend at Kandos but Matt hooked in and got it sorted and
without a doubt the blown 540 big block was the loudest engine on the day.
Crazy Commodore is FROMHELL
First time I've seen this car out. It was at Summernats 26 but didn't see
it do any skids there, but they put it out on the pad at Dubbo and set fire
to it. Good times!
383AXE Dies Tragically at Dubbo
While nothing came out the bottom of Jason Earl's 383AXE, it didn't sound
good when it stopped at the NSW Pro Burnouts. Talking to Jason later he
reckoned that it's probably broken a piston but he'll know for sure when it
gets it back to central Queensland.
YLDTOY Spits Flames at Summernats 26
Plenty of action in the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship at summernats 26.
Tony D with YLDTOY was throwing fuel out the cap when it whipped around on
the pad, and it didn't take long to light them up. It enough to DQ him.
I have no idea what's going on with the front end, it's almost like they
decided to run without front shocks.
UNLOAD Flames Up AGAIN at Mallanats.
I think Steve is running at about 60% these days. That is, he catches fire
with UNLOAD about 60% of the time. He's been lucky so far to not damage it
too badly though and it's amazing to watch this machine in action..
NUTTD8 Smokes Out Summernats
The new track and the angle of the sun combined with the wind made filming
a challenging prospect this year, and it doesn't help when the cars make as
much smoke as Jason Rose with NUTTD8.
I know, smoke at a burnout comp - who'd of thunk it?
EVILXA - SUMMERNATS 26 LIQUI-MOLY NATIONAL BURNOUT MASTER 2013
Peter Grmusa reckons that Powerhouse Engines are the reason why he's had
such a good year on the burnout pad. The engine has been ultra-reliable and
trouble free which frees Peter up to concentrate on driving. And drive it
Peter smoked out a quality field of entrants to take the Liqui Moly
National Burnout Masters Trophy for 2013 and take home the $15,000 cheque.
With the rest of his wins this year he's up around the $40K mark in terms
of winnings. Well done Peter.
CUTSIK Running Amok at NSW Pro Burnouts
Check out the wheels that Craig Whiddett is doing burnouts on at Dubbo. He
destroyed his competition set but didn't have any spares for a bit of
playtime afterwards so he used his 'show wheels'.
