Not sure what happened here, but something definitely let go in the fuel system of this Holden ute because it went up in a big way in the Liqui Moly Power Pit.
Gotta love the firey stomping out the fire with an extinguisher in his hand - WTF?
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.
Summernats 26 - Day Two
Day two at Summernats didn't really kick off until midday with the Shannons
City Cruise down Northbourne where a good selection of cars cruised in
front of 30,000 people they reckon. Then the cruising fired up along with
judging and more scrutineering. Unfortunately the EPA knocked the schedule
around so we missed out on the burnouts, if there was any to be had. We
didn't hear or see any, but we saw plenty of tough rides. Tomorrow is going
to go off with burnouts, cruising, go-to-whoa, show 'n' shine, Dyno, the unveiling, Hilltop
Hoods and that Guinness World Record Attempt..
Summernats 26 - Day Three
Friday at Summernats 26 started with a bang. First up there was the
Guinness World Record for Largest Simultaneous Burnout with 69 cars on the
pad at the same time, then it was into burnout qualifying with a massive
amount of action there. All the while there was constant cruising, show car
judging and Dyno
(which we'll try and get to today) and then it was time for the unveiling
in the Meguairs Pavilion and the Hilltop Hoods on the main stage - and I've
got to say it was the first time I'd heard them, but they were AWESOME!
Can't wait until Saturday.
BLOWN Commodore Ute
Mark Schwirse took a standard SV6 Commodore ute and turned it into burnout
monster with the help of the boys from Taverna Brothers Engineering. It's
got a 540 big block with a 14/71 and methanol injection, and pumps out more
power than anyone needs.
But who cares about needs, this is all about wants.
World's Biggest Burnout Fire!
Justen Brown absolutely torches his Holden ute at Mallanats with one of the
biggest fire shows we've seen.
And then he came out in the finals and do it all again.
TOASTR Minivan Rolls At Summernats 26
It was all action at the Liqui Moly Power Pit on Friday with TOASTR falling
over during Qualifying for the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship.
As you can see the driver was okay, stepping out through the windscreen
area within seconds of it going over, and yes the gearbox exploded after
the van flipped on it's side raining carnage everywhere.
Summernats 26 - Day Four
The action was hot on and off the track today. My plan was to check out
lots more than I did on Day four at Summernats but with other duties I
ended up missing more than I got. Sorry about the lack of show cars, and
cruising etc. The rain certainly put a damper on the nights activities with
the PPG Supercruise being cancelled, but they still had the fireworks and
finished off with Rose Tattoo.
BLOWN is Summernats 26 Burnout Champion
After debuting (and setting fire to) his new ride at Springnats 2012, Mark
Schwirse has scored the win of his burnout career with the top prize at
Summernats 26 in the Liqui Moly Summernats Burnout Championship. Naturally
he scores a slot in next years Burnout Masters and the respect of all
burnout loving aussies. Well done dude.
Ben Bray's Burnout Ute
Remember this beast? Ben Bray's Holden VY SS ute. They built this car
specifically for burnout from a brand new Holden shell and filled it full
supercharged Hemi goodness. Here's some video of it cutting loose at
Supernats some years ago.
Scotty's Garage - Top Ten 2012
Here's the Top Ten videos from Scotty's Garage for 2012. These are the top
viewed videos from my channel this year as picked by you guys and girls.
So what's your favourite? And why? Or is there something you reckon that
should have made the list. Let me know in the comments section below.
UNLOAD Skids at Summernats 26
How good is this beast. Not only did it make it into the Elite Hall at
Summernats but it also hit the burnout pad in style. After this they
cleaned it up and put it in the Top 60 Hall for the big show.
Summernats 26 - Day One Preview
Yep it's that time of year again. Street Machine Summernats is held in
Canberra and it is Australia's biggest horsepower party. This year
is set to be bigger than ever with over 1700 cars. We take a look at the
new burnout pad and catch up with some of the rides coming through
2000hp Torana Wins Horsepower Heroes
Jake Edwards goes back to back at Summernats 26 with another win in horsepower Heroes with
1666rwhp (and equates to over 2000hp at the flywheel). The car runs a 496ci
big block with a massive 106mm Garrett turbo with EFI and methanol. It has run 7.88 at
179mph on the quarter, so it's not just a Dyno queen.
Check out how much Exhaust energy it
produces at the end of the video where it blew my second camera over even
though it was at least 8 feet away.
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.
