Anthony Page held off some fearsome competition to take out the $10,000 win at Badass Burnouts at Perth Motorplex on Saturday night.
The [PAGEY] Holden ute was strong from the outset, delivering a high speed entry and great use of the pad to impress the judges, in what punters agreed was a win a long time coming.
Page finished a single point ahead of Fred Watson in the [FEAR] Monaro in the Blown class in what proved to be a torrid battle as several machines were caught out by mechanical failure.
NA Open’s $2000 prize went to the popular [SEWERSIDE], driven by Colin Byrne. As per usual the plumbing van held nothing back, looking to be on the verge of tipping over but always staying on its feet and releasing copious amounts of tyre smoke.
The pressure was on all competitors to ‘go big or go home’ and for some it proved too much – the [MAYHEM] Commodore went for a high speed end-to-end trip and was carrying lots of momentum on the swing at the southern side of the pad, coming into heavy contact with the safety barriers.
The entrants of Badass Burnouts wanted to make sure they delivered a ‘badass’ show for the spectators and so after the official competition was done, an expression session saw about ten drivers return just to smash some more tyres and hear the cheers of the crowd in what proved to be a surprisingly entertaining package.
Thanks to all the competitor and spectators who turned out for Badass Burnouts and we look forward to seeing you all for Burnout Blitz on November 28.
