MATT Purnell took out the Gazzanats Darwin powerskid comp this weekend at Hidden Valley Raceway. The event was Matt's first time competing with his new engine combo, a blown 480-cube big-block Chev with mechanical injection built by Blown Motorsports.

The new combo was only dyno tuned a couple of hours before getting on the truck from Perth up to Darwin so the tune wasnt 100 per cent but it pulled a killer powerskid and tore up the burnout pad without breaking anything so Matt went home smiling.

Check out the video to see Matt's winning powerskid and all of the other competitor's straight-line burnouts from this weekend.
