WE MAY have only just fully recovered from the record-breaking horsepower party that was Street Machine Summernats 30, but Summernats 31 will be upon us before we know it, and early indications are that it’s going to be a beauty!
Six months out from the event, the Summernats office has been a hive of activity, processing no less than 600 pre-entries! Meanwhile, the Burnout Masters field is starting to take shape, with almost half of the qualifying events having been run and won. From the Summernats 30 Burnout Masters, we have reigning champ Steve Nogas in KILLA-B, along with Leigh Mackenzie in LUXURY, Rick Fuller’s LSONE, Colin Byrne in SEWERSIDE, and the people’s champ, Andrew Lynch in his infamous LS-powered Corolla, LYNCHY.
Qualifiers from Gazzanats WA are Matthew James in UNWANTED and Matthew Hughes’s MON5TA.
Most recently at Burnout King at the Perth Motorplex, Kevin Mantach in ALCOTRAZ, Matthew Purnell in BLACKOUT, and Jason Tanian in KENOATH all added their names to the list.
There are still plenty of opportunities to score a Burnout Masters berth, so for your chance to bang tyres with the best in the business at Summernats 31, get along to a qualifying event, and bring your A-game!
