Sparks fly as Ali Saed stands his Chevy powered Capri on the bumper at Sydney Dragway. We're not sure how much damage there was, but they way he runs over the timing boxes at the end of the track shows that not everything was right.
Forward Control Land Rover Burnout
Another one from the burnout video vault. This unusual vehicle is a Forward
Control Land Rover and while I'm not sure what engine it's running, I'm
betting it's not the one it left the factory with. Pretty cool burnout from
a very unusual vehicle.
SUBTLE Wins Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine Nationals
It may be SUBTLE by name but Jeremy Callaghan's twin turbo Torana is anything but subtle. Even though
it's not the quickest car in the class the Torana swept all before it
during the Chicago Shootout in Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine
Nationals and then defeeated the Perko Torana in the finals. A solid win
from a very cool looking car
Pro Fab Cortina Goes 200mph
Joe Gauci used to be the underdog with his six pack Cortina but now he's
the big dog and one of the most consistent runners in the sport. Just check
out these runs, he could run DYO with that kind of consistentcy. The engine
is a 370ci Windsor with twin turbos.
ULEGAL is a SMOKE MACHINE!
Mick Brasher's ULEGAL Corolla blanketed the pad at Sydney's Street Machine
Nationals. The little blown chevy powered beast had a new motor for the
show and Mick drove all through the night to make it to Sydney in time and
delivered this awesome burnout. Not quite good enough for the win though, i
think he came second.
Fiesty APSA Girls at Street Machine Nationals
Thank god for Promo girls. Otherwise there would be nothing to look at
other than cars at car events... and we couldn't have that. these lovely
lasses were at the Street Machine Nationals promoting the Australian Pro
Street Association and they were doing a pretty damn fine job of it too.
MELTEM Goes Bang!
This blown V8 powered Toyota Corolla was going great until the bits inside
the engine decided they wanted to be outside.
MRHELI Taps the Wall At Sydney Dragway
MRHELI gets lose at high speed and gives the wall a budge at Sydney
Dragway. He's lucky this wasn't much worse given the speed he was doing
when it got out of shape.
PILTZY'S Hatch at Avalon
Brett Piltz hauled his Torana hatchback all the way to Avalon (from Wagga)
for Tread Cemetery and delivered a serious smokeshow for his team.
Sparks Fly - HG Holden Wheelstand
I'm not totally sure who's HG Holden this is, but it had no trouble getting
the front wheels off the deck and scaring the driver. It came down with a
hell of a thump and sparks went everywhere. But obviously it was okay
because the car came out later and made more passes. Good to see.
Crazy Turk Does a Burnout and Jumps On Roof of Car
Yep, it's Ahmet again. The Mad Turk is practically an institution when it
comes to his crazy no-holds-barred burnouts and he didn't disappoint during
this epic performance at the old Syndey Car Festival at Rosehill
Racecourse. Nowaday's he's running a blown Chevy but his burnouts are still
as crazy as ever.
MINCER Runs 7.54 at Sydney Dragway
It's been a while since i've seen Tristan Ocker's MINCER Capri running down
the quarter but it certainly hasn't lost any of it's ferocity. I only saw
one pass from the green Capri at Sydney Dragway but it was a doozy running
a 7.54 at 193mph with the wheels liftings all the way through the run.
