BRING YOUR BEAST TO THE RED CEN­TRE!

> JA­SON BRIGHT CUTS UP THE STREETS OF ALICE AHEAD OF THIS YEAR’S RED CEN­TRE NATS

Street Machine - - News Front -

THE stand-out best fea­ture of last year’s in­au­gu­ral Red Cen­tre­nats in Alice Springs was the fact that en­trants with cars that, shall we say, push the limit of street regis­tra­tion were able to cruise around the streets of Alice with the full ap­proval of the au­thor­i­ties. It was awe­some to see the likes of Lynchy and Gary My­ers en­joy­ing the sights in cars that are nor­mally only seen on the burnout pad.

The same scheme is on of­fer for this year’s event (2-4 Septem­ber), and to high­light the point, the Red Cen­tre­nats crew or­gan­ised for Ja­son Bright to take his Team BOC V8 Su­per­car for a pro­mo­tional spin around town. We didn’t see any skids from the num­ber #8 (a la Whin­cup at Sum­mer­nats 29) and nei­ther will we at Red Cen­tre­nats – the street per­mits are there to al­low en­trants to en­joy cruis­ing with their mates against an epic land­scape, not turn­ing tyres. For those who want to re­ally test their car at the event, there will be am­ple op­por­tu­nity, with burnouts, drags, a mo­torkhana and more. To en­quire about your car’s el­i­gi­bil­ity for the spe­cial per­mits, hit up red­cen­tre­nats.com.au.

And the word is that en­tries are rolling in fast. One en­try that caught our eye was Street Ma­chine Drag Chal­lenge vet­eran Adam Ro­gash and his mon­ster VT Club­sport (photo top right). His seven-sec­ond weapon is go­ing to turn plenty of heads in Alice, and man, does he have a full sched­ule of events on his plate! Af­ter RCN, he’ll head to the World Time At­tack Chal­lenge in Syd­ney to take on the GT-RS in the Fly­ing 500 event. And shortly af­ter that, he’ll be back for Street Ma­chine Drag Chal­lenge all over again. Busy lad!
