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.
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
CUTSIK - Burnout Winner at Street Machine Nationals
Craig Widdett whips it hard at the Street Machine Nationals to win the
burnout comp ahead of some very tough competition. The grey VK Commodore
runs a blown LS1 based Chevy and the revs were right up there as he
blankets the grandstand with smoke. In the past, Commodores have been
pretty rare in the winners circle at burnout comps but with a slew of new
rides hitting the scene in the last year or two I think those days might be
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.
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.
Twin Turbo V8 Lexus-powered Capri
Joe Geri's Capri recently featured in Street Machine Magazine and it has
run as fast as 8.34 at 164mph. But instead of running a V8 Ford engine Joe
has gone for a 4-litre Lexus V8, which is legally the biggest engine he can
fit to the car and turbo it while
remaining totally street legal. He drives this car to the track, bolts on
some slicks, runs eights and drives it home. It's a true street and strip
warrior. Nice one Joe!
OBNXYS Blown XY Falcon
XY Falcon sedans are hugely popular in Australia and it's not hard to see
why, especially when they've got a blower poking through the hood.
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.
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.
