A History of the Summernats
The Summernats is one of the world’s great automotive events — a unique blend of unbridled horsepower, exceptional automotive artistry, superior craftsmanship and great fun.
Jon Van Daal takes us on a nitrous-fuelled trip looking at the Summernats from its inception, and how it has progressed over the years. Every aspect is covered — incredible events, amazing stunts, beautiful women, burnouts, cruising, spectacular entertainment, the crowning of the champions... and lots and lots of cars.
Go behind the scenes with promoter Chic Henry and his hard working staff. With nearly 2,000 cars and well over 100,000 spectators, the Summernats is one of the biggest motoring events on the Australian calendar.
As your eyes wander from page to page, you can almost smell the burnout smoke and hear the engines scream.
Experience the atmosphere and excitement of Australia’s number one horsepower party.
