OVER the past couple of years, Red CentreNATS has become one of our favourite events here in the SM office. Where else can you drive a crazy blown burnout car on the street legally, go drag racing, see elite show cars and do big skids?
The event, which this year takes place 1-3 September, has its own field of Burnout Masters, which will be made up of the best competitors from a number of shows from every corner of the country – including Ultimate Burnout Challenge (UBC) at Winton, Victoria this weekend. Not only is there $10,000 up for grabs for first place overall, but the top two cars from the blown class will receive a ticket to the Red CentreNATS Burnout Masters!
Following UBC, two cars from Burnout King in WA will score RCN Burnout Masters tickets, three from Lincoln Skids in SA, two from Northern Nats in Cairns, three from Steel City Nats in SA and three from Roxby Skids SA. Masters spots are also on the cards for Gazzanats NT, with the number available still to be confirmed. As you can see, that’s a lot of South Oz events, which event organisers have deliberately included to encourage those most local to Alice Springs to give RCN a crack.
It’s set to be a strong field of contenders, with the line-up already including some of the biggest names in burnouts. Three Summernats Burnout Masters tickets are also up for grabs at Red CentreNATS, so you can guarantee the competition is going to be fierce!
