BILLED as the biggest burnout event on the Western Australian calendar, Burnout King is held on Good Friday at the Perth Motorplex.
Almost 100 cars went head-to-head for the $10,000 first prize, and a crew of eastern-state competitors trucked over to show the Westies how it was done. With UCSMOKE, LYNCHY, GMHAZD, NUMNUTZ, LSONE and LOOSE fresh from a season of tyre destruction in Victoria and NSW, they were pumped to hit the massive Motorplex pad.
But the West Australians weren’t ready to go down without a fight, and they brought out all the big guns to fend off the visitors, with FEAR, WONAGO, SINASTAR, PREDATOR, OLD HOON and BLWNWAGON all ready for battle. In all there were over 30 supercharged cars, powered by enough methanol to put a serious dent in the world’s fuel supply, and thousands of spectators to watch it all.
In the end it was local tyre-fryer Darran Williams in DIESEL who took home the $10,000 first prize, while Andrew Lynch in the LYNCHY Corolla finished just a few points behind for second place. Justen Brown with WONAGO, Anthony Page with PAGEE and Matt Purnell with BLACKOUT rounded out the top five.
