Mo­tor your way to the show

Hot trucks ready to line up for Su­per­nats 2017

Big Rigs - - WHAT’S ON -

STREET MA­CHINES, beasts and mon­sters alike are set to take over the road­way this Novem­ber, and you’re in­vited.

Su­per­nats, one of the big­gest events on any rev-head’s cal­en­dar is back for its 23rd year, an event for mo­tor fans of all shapes and sizes to show off their gear in a safe and fam­ily friendly en­vi­ron­ment.

Held at the Syd­ney Mo­tor­sport Park the out­door event show­cases a num­ber of mo­tor­sports events for ev­ery­day driv­ers to en­ter, such as drag rac­ing, a burnout com­pe­ti­tion, and a mas­sive Show N Shine.

Start­ing from Oran Park in 1994 -1997 to Eastern Creek Race­way 1999-2003, the venue has grown over time along with the crowd.

The event had to even­tu­ally be moved to Syd­ney Drag­way in 2004 af­ter crowd sizes bal­looned to 23,000.

Owner and man­ager Ah­met Se­hirligil (The Mad Turk) has been with the event from its in­cep­tion and is one of th­ese many horse­power en­thu­si­asts look­ing for­ward to the day.

“This year we have been go­ing for 23 years and have grown the num­ber of trucks join­ing in.

“It started off more for a mo­tor en­thu­si­asts who liked street ma­chines, hot rods, chop­pers and Har­leys.

“In 2014 we thought, why don’t we have trucks as well?” he said.

“There is plenty of prize money for those who have regis­tered to show off their skill on the day,” he said.

“Watch­ing the trucks race down the track re­ally gets the crowd go­ing, we al­ready have 30 en­tered and ex­pect more to come closer to the day,” he said.

“It re­ally is a day fo­cused on en­ter­tain­ment, and show­cas­ing your skills,” he said.

“We can’t wait to see a crowd there.”

This year’s Burnout Com­peti­tors will be bat­tling out for the big cash award of $10,000 for first place.
