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.
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 outing.
UNLOAD Drops a Load of Smoke On Motorvation
I love the lighting at the Perth Motorplex. Most tracks have shit lighting but Perth is awesome which means you get to see cars like Stev Loader's UNLOAD in all their glory. The only problem was that he made so much smoke you couldn't see him half the time, but that's burnouts for you. :)
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.
UNLOAD Catches Fire At Summernats 26
It's been one of the most highly anticipated cars of 2012 featuring on several magazine covers, winning show awards and generally blowing minds. Steve Loader UNLOAD Commodore belongs to a new category of cars I like to call PRO BURNOUT - It's a burnout machine with a showcar finish.
But Steve being Steve, he couldn't keep it away from the burnout track. He put it on the pad both Friday and Sunday and did spectacular shows both days, but check out the fire after his Sunday skid. Luckily it didn't seem to damage the paint, but it looked pretty bad at the time. Hopefully we'll get to see more of this car on the pad soon.
NSW PRO BURNOUTS - February 2nd 2013
NSW PRO BURNOUTS. Make sure you don't miss the biggest burnout comp in NSW with over $25,000 up for grabs. It's happening at Morris Park Speedway in Dubbo on February 2nd 2013. Check it out on Facebook.
WRAPT - RB30 Turbo Powered Corolla
I was pretty amazed to learn this little Corolla was packing an RB30 turbo engine up front. Obviously it's stuck a fair way back into the firewall, but it gave a good account of itself in the Lqui Moly Summernats 26 Burnout comp.
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.
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 polished metal.
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..
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.
T4TUFF Burns The Guardrails at Kandos
With rain closing in the Kandos organisers decided to go with Saturday's qualifying results, which left entrants to have some fun on Sunday.
Matt Power went nuts with his Holden One-Tonner and gave the fans a huge fire show that rivalled KRANKY's fire from last year.
