IT’S a big weekend ahead for car enthusiasts with the NQ Pro Burnouts on at the Cairns Speedway today, followed by the Cairns Swap Meet Car Bike and Truck Show at the Cairns Showgrounds on Sunday.
Up to $13,000 of prize money is up for grabs at today’s tyre-burning event with gates open from 11am and practice time until 2pm. This year’s event is also a qualifier for the Liqui-Moly Summernats #26 Burnout Masters, the winner collecting a golden ticket into the 2013 Burnout Masters. There will be awards for the top 10, longest travelled, best presented and for the most impressive blowup, known as the Carnage Award.
