EXTREME temperatures and a sheen of bushfire smoke failed to deter punters from enjoying day two of Summernats 33. With a huge variety of automotive action, there was something on offer for everybody.
A packed Skid Row stayed open for most of the day, providing drivers a chance to test their powerskid mettle. A highlight was Jake Myers’ wild S1CKO Mustang, throwing up a thick curtain of two-tone smoke.
The Horsepower Heroes competition kicked off on day two, with some huge numbers flying off MPW Performance’s hub dynos. Maria Passos’ incredible sleeper-spec XR6 squeezed out 2084 horsepower, breaking the 6-cylinder record with a de-stroked Barra.
While not competing, the Castle Hill Performance VT Commodore made a return with some new hardware, this time pulling a stonking 3200hp at the hubs.
Carnage’s own Barra-powered MX5 also proved itself on the dyno before hitting Skid Row, which you’ll see in a future episode.
Burnout Championship qualifying provided hours of big skids, and a few wall-related love taps.
Capping off day two was the Great Uncover, which saw 12 mind-blowing cars unleashed to the public.
Summernats action is only heating up, so stay tuned for more updates!
