In pics: Summernats

SUMMERNATS is the biggest horsepower party in Australia, and it celebrates the modified car scene like no other.

Every year, 100,000 people and over 1800 cars head to Canberra to check out the very best street machines and hot rods in the country. But it’s not just a bunch of cars sitting around looking pretty; there’s an endless procession of cool cruisers and mad monsters circling Exhibition Park all weekend. While on the track and main oval there are enough burnouts and other driving events to satisfy even the most hard core fans.

For those that want to remain indoors there’s an endless array of trade stalls, show cars and even a dyno competition, where cars go head to head to see who’s got the most horsepower. If high octane flows through your veins then Summernats is definitely one for the bucket list. Check out the full coverage in our February issue, on sale now, or if that’s not enough content then grab the special 140pg Summernats edition on sale February 13th.
