Did you know that Summernats 30 in 2017 was the biggest in the event’s history with more than 119,000 spectators and over 2500 entrant vehicles in attendance?
Join us in 2018 for Summernats 31 for what is sure to be another sensational event.
Here’s some facts that may surprise you about Australia’s biggest automotive event.
With massive concerts on Friday and Saturday nights, an epic fireworks spectacular, Kids Club, helicopter rides, sideshows and more, Summernats packs in the fun for the whole family.
In 2018, Summernats will feature a team of competition burnout cars from our neighbours in New Zealand, and a supercharged classic Chevrolet pickup truck all the way from Oklahoma City.
Farmtruck and Azn, stars of the hit Discovery Channel TV show Street Outlaws, will be hitting the burnout pad and the Summernats cruise route, and hanging out with their Aussie fans.
One of the world’s best automotive artists, Charley Hutton also makes his return to Summernats and will be holding strictly limited classes on airbrush art technique.
There are more than 30 places to eat at Summernats to keep the country’s most passionate petrolheads well fed. Indian, Turkish, Italian, American, Cuban, Greek and more, and of course the good old-fashioned Dagwood Dog.
Friday night at Summernats sees the country’s best new custom car builds unveiled in front of a crowd of thousands. Watch as the covers come off these never-before-seen radical rides as they make their show car debut. In 2018, Summernats will see a record 12 new vehicles unveiled.
Budding custom car builders have the opportunity to meet and speak with the first Summernats ambassador, Carolyn O’Brien, during the event. Carolyn is a Summernats veteran of more than 20 years and is a staunch advocate for increased involvement of women in the modified car scene and Summernats.
