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.

PETER BROCK TRIBUTE King Of The Mountain
Peter Brock is known by many as "King of the Mountain' and one of the best
racing drivers Australia has seen.
After his tragic death in 2006 a large proportion of the 194,000 race
spectators also came to say farewell to him. In doing so they decorated
the safety wall at the top of the mountain with thousands of farewell
GUP'S 727CI MONSTER DYNO'D!
As the creator of Powercruise and the owner of some of this country's

727 Cubic Inches and Australian Tire Smoke! - Roadkill Episode 10
On this episode of Roadkill, there's endless burnouts and powerskids as
David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD magazine are on the loose in
Australia with 727ci of Sonny Leonard hemi-headed madness. The massive
big-block makes 1,275 horsepower between the
fenders of a 2006 Holden HSV VE Clubsport R8. In American, that's like a
Pontiac G8. This display of overkill is the product of "Gup," the promoter
of the Powercruise series of events in Australia, New Zealand, and
Minnesota (USA) where tire smoke is the rule. On the show, you'll see tire
fire from Gup's infamous "Elvis" '74 Holden HQ, from his 727ci Clubbie,
from a 1,500ci diesel semi truck, and from Downunder's most throttle-happy
petrolheads on both coasts. The miracle is that Freiburger and Finnegan
aren't still in an Aussie jail. Of course, that might have been less
punishing than the 30-hour flight home.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
