Summernats 33 – Burnout Championship eliminations

Saturday on the burnout pad was full of thrills and spills!

Photographers: Tim McCormack

DAY three of Street Machine Summernats 33 began with a skid from the Bullet Burnout Truck. The iconic big rig put on a real show, kissing the wall with the bed while cutting hoops across the track.

The action continued when TOAST returned with new engine after a mammoth effort to get the car mobile. While flames weren’t an issue for Cleetus McFarland, he once again threw the Camaro into the wall.

It was a short, but spectacular run for Mitchell Hawes in SKIDHAW, who lost a wheel as he powered down the entry shoot. The Ford Courier ute left the pad on a tow-truck.

It was the first skid for Joshua Armstong in BLOWN2J. The internet-melting Toyota 86 had one hell of a test run on the Summernats track and received a positive affirmation from the crowd.

Finalists will take to the pad today at 11am, for their last chance to impress the judges.
