NEW NATIONAL BURNOUT TV SERIES SET TO SMASH THE AIRWAVES!
Summernats are taking burnouts to the next level, launching the world’s first televised burnout competition “The Burnout Masters Series”, which will air nationally on SPEED.
Following the success of the Summernats TV special, watched by over 1 million viewers, the promoters of Australia’s biggest car festival are continuing to grow grass-roots motorsport events with the creation of the new Burnout Masters series.
The Burnout Masters Series is comprised of 4 qualifier rounds and 5 wildcard events where the best burnout drivers in Australia battle it out for the right to compete in the Liqui-Moly Burnout Masters at the Summernats.
Featuring events from all over Australia, the Burnout Masters Series is a truly national competition. All of the Qualifier events will be broadcast in the first year.
The top 3 cars from each qualifier round automatically qualify for the Liqui-Moly Burnout Masters at the Summernats. One car from each wildcard event is also selected for the Liqui-Moly Burnout Masters.

With the top ten drivers from last year’s Liqui-Moly Burnout Masters and the top 3 from the Summernats Burnout Championships Summernats automatic qualifiers, the Burnout Masters at Summernats 28 will feature Australia’s undisputed top 30 burnout cars.
“Burnouts are like the UFC of motorsports; highly professional but extremely hard-core,” said Summernats Co-owner Andy Lopez.
“We have aligned ourselves with the best burnout events in Australia to create the Qualifier and Wildcard events in the series. The Burnout Masters Series gives burnouts a year round presence on TV, and will definitely help burnouts continue to grow as a motorsport.”
