Peter Gray drives his 1968 Camaro like he stole it on the Springnats skid pan

Videographers: Scott TAYLOR

PETER Gray has plenty of runs on the board in the burnout game. He won the Street Machine Summernats 16 Burnout Championship in 2003 and has won Burnout Masters at Summernats 19, 22 and 23. Lately, he’s been ripping up pads in his Top Fuel-powered HK Monaro, which is reputed to put out a lazy 8000hp. As you do.

Even so, we have a soft spot for Peter’s old faithful 1968 Chev Camaro and his enthusiastic driving style. Check out this video, from the Springnats in Shepparton in around 2007. Pete treats the crowd to mix of drifting and burnouts and in the process foreshadows the crazy antics we see these days from blown and injected monsters at burnout competitions all around the country. He was just mucking around, but the original Scotty’s Garage video is the most popular piece of content Scotty has ever made, with over four and a half million views!
