The Street Machine Summernats is hands down Australia’s biggest car festival. And with crowds eclipsing 80,000, it’s one of Australia’s biggest events of any genre. Held annually in Canberra, it’s a four-day celebration that mixes 1700 of Australia’s finest and toughest streeters with smokey burnouts, driving skills events, a huge array of automotive aftermarket traders, the glamorous Miss Summernats competition and rockin’ good entertainment. Given MotorActive’s widespread involvement with the automotive enthusiast community, it’s understandable that Summernats 28 will herald the 23rd year MotorActive has been associated with this iconic event. For 2015, we’re really stepping things up; on top of our regular sponsorship of the Judging Pavilion, Great Uncover, People’s Choice, Elite Show and both burnout competitions (see feature page 42), MotorActive’s impressive stand will showcase all our brands; Meguiar’s, Liqui-Moly, ColorSpec, Designer Wraps, House of Kolor, MotorEx, Cruise for Charity and FreeStyle Rides. We’ll have a variety of live demonstrations, friendly knowledgeable staff for answering even the curliest of questions, plus once-in-a-lifetime mega deals. But wait there’s more! Rob Zahabi’s mind-blowing Chevy Nova will take pride of place on the MotorActive stand, giving everybody the opportunity to pour over this breathtaking machine.
While you’re there, grab yourself a supercharged, double-sided, wall poster featuring the wicked Nova and wild Brown Sugar hot rod. With all this and more, there’s zero chance you’ll miss our presence in the Traders Pavilion! Elsewhere in Exhibition Park, Friday night in the Meguiar’s Judging Pavilion is the place to be for the Meguiar’s Great Uncover, followed by the Meguiar’s Elite Show with around 60 of Australia’s best show cars. Across the four days, Summernats burnout contestants will be mashing the loud pedal and smashing tyres for the chance to be crowned Liqui-Moly Burnout Champion, while the best of the best go head-to-head in the Liqui-Moly Burnout Masters, which is shaping up to be a fire-breathing battle of epic proportions. Summernats 28, 1st till the 4th of January, 2015. Swing by for a chat, check out KAM Nova and score yourself a smokin’ deal.
