The annual Street Machine Summernats Car Festival, proudly supported by Rare Spares, is Australia’s biggest horse power party.Created by renowned revhead Chic Henry in 1988, the Summernats has taken on a life of its own and become a genuine Aussie icon. Every year, up to 1500 of the toughest Australian elite street machines descend on Exhibition Park in Canberra. Coming from around Australia and the world, this incredibly diverse tribe gathers to show off their love of the street machine to an enthusiastic crowd of over 85,000 people. The Summernats delivers three and a half days of high octane extreme auto action including Australia’s top street machine judging competition, the world’s best burnout battle, precision driving demos, horsepower heroics, and more.It’s all set against a backdrop of burnt rubber, rock and roll, and one of Australia’s biggest motor retail trade shows as we search for the Street Machine Summernats Grand Champion.So much more than a motor show, the Street Machine Summernats is a celebration of the street machine lifestyle and the people who live it.
Whether you know nothing about cars, or you can talk about them from the moment you wake up till the moment you got to sleep, the Summernats is Australia’s best place to party in January.
