50 finalists duke it out for the Summernats 33 Burnout Championship

Summernats 33 Burnout Championship finals

GETTING through to the finals of the Street Machine Summernats Burnout Championships is always a gruelling business, but the conditions faced by the hopefuls in 2020 were nothing short of diabolical. 

The oppressive bushfire smoke that hung over Canberra all weekend and the record-setting temperatures on Saturday tested everyone and the 50 contenders that made it through to the finals should be extra-proud of their achievements. 

When the smoke cleared, it was Rick Fuller in the LSONE VK on the top of the podium, followed by Jono Kelly's screaming, NASCAR-powered 3FIVES VK. 

Phil Kerjean's TUFFST wagon took out third. 

Matt Watts took out the six-cylinder gong for the third time in his BLO202 LJ Torana. Enjoy the video and stay tuned for our Burnout Masters highlights.
