Here's what car events are happening around the country this weekend


BURNOUT Outlaws is set to take over Sydney Dragway this Saturday, just one week after Street Machine Summernats 29. A bunch of the guys from last weekend’s Burnout Masters final will be competing and looking to raise the bar even higher, including IBLOWN, HOLDON, UCSMOKE, SICKO, CUTSIK – if he can get his burnt VK ready in time – plus more. There’s up to $25,000 in cash prizes ready to give away to the best burnout beasts and there’ll also be a show ’n’ shine. It’ll cost adults $30 to spectate, and kids $15.

Tractor PullThe Tooradin Tractor Pull and Truck Show is also on this Saturday at the Rutter Reserve, Tooradin, Victoria. Some of the tractors expected to turn up and pull some seriously heavy weights are powered by insane engines, including big V12s pinched from old WWII tanks and aircraft. There are also turbo diesel rigs that make enough torque to make the earth spin back in time, and a bunch of smaller classes. It is serious stuff, and Street Machine’s Scott Taylor will be down there this weekend checking out the insane farm machinery and the truck show. The action runs from 10am to 10pm on Saturday and it’ll cost adults $25 to spectate, with kids over 10 years old $10.

Dodge D5N Pick UpBallarat’s Fuelers Car Club is also holding a car show this Friday night at the Masters hardware store in Ballarat. The event is open to all types of cars, including rods, customs, muscle cars and imports and there will be some of Australia’s best burnout cars on display too. A barbeque is also planned along with a raffle and charity auction, and all proceeds will be donated to local charities. The cars will be arriving from 6pm Friday night.
