Red Centre Nationals 2017

36 posts in this topic

Evening everyone, thought I'd put up a post on the Red Centre Nationals that has kicked off in Alice Springs today with the opening parade around the town.

 

There is approximately 800 cars entered into the event making it one of Australia's biggest petrol head events.

 

The bonus is that you can drive you modified car around Alice for 5 days, no matter how hard out it is.

 

Some pictures to start the thread from the parade. 3701f33f150cda26627dcc750dec4fb4.jpgdb96e90e0a7a8f9fccac698d3a745102.jpg1422bc8dfe6563d45ddc947014b11f07.jpg791137f26751cef0ab37b49a8943649c.jpg2cf9ae2886a18de80600a49c019bdcd6.jpgeb8bd71c81b28f69e061539ef82d47c5.jpg7430d6fd2b9f1c85a17d54e76340db26.jpg7faece321f32c65cb8f255285c6d1df8.jpgbff3b1187b416e325ea5fdab4563f183.jpgb0a1cd32722a0ad8b752cf521b5186ca.jpg

 

I have been pretty bias towards the Falcons.

Yeah there's a few, one in particular is this VK Brock rep that was built in 6 or so weeks, full drag spec with twin turbo 440 cube LS.

I have a ton of photos from the burnouts, and videos but don't seem to be able to upload videos from Tapatalk?

The burnouts masters were put on hold this afternoon, with up to 12 people suffering major burns from one of the cars up against the fence and methanol flames shooting out the back...not good. As a result one of the casualties has suffered a heart attack.

I'll endeavour to upload photos shortly.

The Summernats 2017 Grand Champion holden came out into the burnout pad and blew a set of tyres, brave guy to throw it around like he did.

The FG burnout car runs a blown LS, and surprisingly still runs a factory IRS with a locker....holding together pretty well.

Upload your vids to youtube then link them as you would any other vid. Unfortunately Tapatalk doesn't allow direct uploads of video.

The incident sounds like someone didn't plan the seating properly... Just as well the events have huge insurance coverage.

Thanks I'll try that.

The fence where the incident happened is very close to the pad. The area is also raised up above the pad by a metre or so.

I was down by the start line and didn't see it happen but heard the panic, and later did see one of the victims with the front of his clothing burnt off, a terrible end to an excellent event.

Let's hope the 12 people have a fast recovery.

I'm not sure sure but the interior was awesome, had a big L shaped custom couch in the back, and at the rear had a small kitchen sink and 3 pin plugs, you could just your Oz in it, it's pretty out there in styling but I liked the detail.
