Smoke was sent to the heavens in memory of Scotty Joseph.
What a spectacular start fo the 2010 burnout season. The event had a great line up of cars competiting for all the classes. The new bigger pad was a huge benefit to drivers and they made use of every inch of it, wipping their cars harder than ever!
On top of the great show from the burnout competitiors, the Springmount Drag Racing Club came out and burned some rubber in the name of FNQ motor sport. Head on over to the Springmount Drag Racing Club to see how you can help the dream of having a drag strip in FNQ.
A first time finalist, and win for the 6cyl class was the Bentley Park School car driven by Joe Brolese. It’s worth mentioning that their VK Commodore is worked on by the students to increase their mechanical edution and Joe, the teacher, takes it out to give it a hard time. Congratulations to Joe and all the children who worked on this car.
Colin Wolfe wasn’t able to hold on to the Scotty Joseph trophy this year, but took out the 8 cylinder class in his VS Commodore ute.
For the first time the open class got very competitive with 7 entries all putting on an awesome show for the crowd. Benny Circle had the edge taking home the open class trophy.
A first time female competitor, Gemma Procak, showed that it’s not just for the boys and took the win for the ladies category.
And finally the Scotty Joseph perpetual trophy winner for the best skid of the night was taken home by Laurie Sultana.
