Summernats may be horse free, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of horsing around at Fashions on the Field. This Saturday afternoon event celebrates the unique fashion choices that make entrants and spectators a distinctive crowd.

What’s Summernats without a side of mullets? We’ll answer that: nothing. The Summernats Mullet Competition celebrates the most iconic petrol head hairstyle of all time including the Grand Mullet award winner, vying for a huge championship belt.

The Burnout Masters is the world’s biggest and best burnout competition, with tyre-frying competitions on each day. Watch as Canberra’s skies are filled with colour, the smell of burnt rubber and the sounds of tyres shredding.
