> THE FIRST-EVER ASPONATS PROVED YOU DONíT HAVE TO BE BLOWN TO BE KNOWN ASUNNY winterís day at the Bairnsdale Dragway gave the perfect backdrop to the inaugural Powerhouse Engines AspoNats on Saturday 22 August. Some of Australiaís toughest aspirated burnout cars and some well-known blown beasts (minus blowers, of course) battled it out for a share of the $15K prize pool. It was a great opportunity for some of the real torch-bearers for natural aspiration to shine.
The relaxed event even saw Senator Ricky Muir drop in for a spin on the pad in his Falcon, in one of the non-burnout driving events.
Tim Brown in CEMBLO ended up taking the win in his Haddad 440ci LS-powered VK Commodore, with a great display of driver control and the biggest smoke-out of the pad for the whole event.
South Australian Brett Gray came in second with his insanely high-revving LS-powered Brougham, BROLS1. Jason Earl, who had made the long haul down from Queensland, took home third place in the burnouts, as well as first place in the Dash 4 Cash event, having wrung the neck of 383AXE all day long.
