The Chopped festival will be back 2-4 December, at the Maryborough Harness Racing Club in Carisbrook, Victoria.

The last event in 2019 introduced asphalt drags to the mix and this time they’ll be joined by the return of infamous dirt drags.

A new feature will be indoor chopper show curated by Mitch Bailey.

The musical lineup is massive, headlined by internationally-renowned punks, Amyl and the Sniffers.

The absolute star of the show was Joe Kurtovic’s nitro-swilling blown ’34 coupe thanks to multiple cacklefest start-ups throughout the day and night.

The 8/71-blown 392ci Hemi is fired on petrol, then run on alcohol before being fed 86 per cent nitro for a flame-throwing light show. With the car not yet set up for racing with the new Hemi engine combo, Joe took the precautionary step of leaving his converter at home to prevent temptation!
