WHEN it comes to burnouts, there’s no bigger show than the Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters at Summernats. And why not – first place scores a cheque for $15,000!
It’s one of the toughest competitions in the country, and for those trying to qualify at Summernats through the Last Chance Shootout – as opposed to one of the many qualifying events during the year – it’s even tougher. Those guys fight it out for the last few remaining Masters slots, and their prize is to do it all again against the toughest competitors in the country.
The Burnout Masters at Summernats 28 was bigger than ever, with 30 cars vying for the ultimate prize, and over the course of the event they were whittled down to just 10 hopefuls for the Sunday finals.
We saw four seasons in the space of 20 minutes during the finals. Some competitors had brilliant sunshine, others had pouring rain, and it was just the luck of the draw which way things went.
In the end Brett Battersby took home the big trophy with his blown Toyota HiLux, just two days after having his appendix removed, while Fred Watson and his Monaro scored second, and Rick Fuller with the yellow LSONE Commodore came third.
