BELIEVE it or not, burnouts are big business in the Australian modified car scene these days, and it’s not hard to see why.

You don’t need much in the way of facilities to hold a burnout competition and all the action is right there in front of you. Throw in some supercharged engines screaming at 9000rpm+, radical driving moves and the occasional fire, and they can be pretty spectacular. Naturally we here at Street Machine see thousands of burnouts every year, but if we had to pick one as the best it would probably be Steven Loader’s qualifying effort at Springnats Autofest. Don’t forget to check out more burnout antics in the January issue of Street Machine – on sale December 12rd.
