V8 Supercars in Texas

V8 Supercars will become the first Australian motorsport to stage a full Championship event in the United States when it races at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin Texas, in 2013. The last time an Australian sport was exported to the United States was when an additional and controversial fourth State of Origin rugby league game was played at Long Beach in California in 1987.

Creating History

It is the first time any Australian motorsport category has competed in the United States. The agreement advances V8 Supercars’ international expansion.

American Audience

V8 Supercars is a growing sport in America. Americans watch V8 Supercars on the SPEED™ network throughout South and North America. The American sporting press have taken to V8 Supercars as an action-packed, ultra-competitive form of motorsport.

A Driver’s Perspective

V8 Supercar Driver Mark Winterbottom had a sample the Circuit of The Americas when he went to Austin earlier in June this year.

“This is probably as close to Bathurst as any track I’ve seen, purely because of the angulation. You’ve got blind corners, you’ve got the length, you’ve got the speed, and I think this is going to build up to be a historic track for America as well,” Winterbottom said.

“The circuit’s topography, including the dramatic changes in elevation, will make for some really fun racing and a great show for fans.”

Summernats 2014

Summernats 2014 the annual Street Machine 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.

Summernats 2013 World Record BurnoutEvery 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

Summernats 2014 BeautySummernats 2014 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 Summernats 2014 Holden ShowcarStreet Machine Summernats Grand Champion.
So much more than a motor show, the Street Machine Summernats 2014 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.

The Living End Will Headline Summernats 2014

The Living EndAustralian punk rock and psychobilly icons The Living End will be rocking the Main Stage at the Canberra based Street Machine Summernats, the largest horsepower festival in the Southern Hemisphere, after an announcement made today by the event owners.

On the back of a highly successful Summernats 26 in January this year, which attracted over 100,000 avid car enthusiasts over four days, Summernats 27 is set to be bigger and better than ever.

With more acts yet to be announced, the Living End are a great win for the iconic Aussie car festival, which has featured acts like The Hilltop Hoods, Rose Tattoo, The Screaming Jets, Drapht and Children Collide in recent years.

“Rock’n’roll and tough cars have a lot in common, they both turn the adrenalin up to 11! We’re looking forward to bringing them together this summer in Canberra for the Summernats,” said Scott Owen from The Living End.

The Living End has blazed their way into Australia’s rock history, with six albums and a string of top charting hits. With a unique trio format, The Living End has defined a generation, and with their ability to throw in a fancy fill, beer-frothin’ rockabilly lick or red hot bass run without breaking a sweat, they’re set to ignite the Summernats Main Stage in January 2014.

“We’re really pleased to have The Living End headlining Summernats 27,” said Summernats Co-owner Andy Lopez.

“The Summernats is committed to featuring high profile Aussie music. We had an awesome Friday night with the Hilltop Hoods at Summernats 26, and The Living End continues that great standard.”

In an unexpected move, the Summernats organisers have also announced that they will be mixing things up at next year’s Summernats with an electronic DJ act headlining the Saturday night entertainment at the festival. Traditionally the Saturday night at Summernats has always featured classic rock acts.

“We’ve secured one of Australia’s best electronic DJ acts for Saturday night, and we’ll be releasing those details in September,” said Lopez. “And the best thing is we’re presenting these acts at no extra cost to our punters. Online ticket prices for Nats 27 are still the same price as they were two years ago at Nats 25. Not many festivals of any type can say that.”
