Last year, we showed you how to make a blacktop – Aussie Style. It was a bit of a housewarming party that Mick Brasher put on for all of their friends, and they all got to Christen the Brasher’s burnout pad. Now, let’s see a show of hands, here: how many of you have a burnout pad next to your garage?
Well, as last year’s article suggests, the Brashers live in Australia, and we all know that those crazy gearheads from Down Under just live for the burnout. Some of them build cars that are intended to burn the hides right off the wheels, and they don’t just throw a car together… many of those cars are pretty awesome, blown, and very custom, with paint jobs that would make you drool.
The fact that these cars are throwing chunks of rubber is of little consequence to these guys, and we just love the way they do this all for the sport of it. They seem to get even more enthusiastic when something breaks or catches on fire, too. That, my friends, is dedication.
Not to be outdone by last year’s housewarming party, we hear that there was a birthday party and as if that wasn’t enough reason to celebrate, it had to be done in true Brasher style. As they put it: is there any other reason to throw another burnout party? We were contacted by our friend Adam Jackson, who put the above video together and let us in on their party. Brasher’s better half, Linda, turned 40 and she decided to repeat last year’s party.
Adam knew we loved the housewarming party, and he just knew we’d love the birthday celebration as well. So he contacted us and shared a video, and with that, we bring you the Brasher Nats birthday celebration from our crazy friends in Australia. It’s funny to see these massive blowers sticking through the hood on these cars – because we all know that one of the reasons for the extra boost is to make more smoke; and where there’s smoke, there is sometimes fire – and they love it!
Total carnage from the 19 cars that blazed on the pad: three cars broke. But that was the plan, as Jackson tells us that the burnouts started at about 2 pm and kept going until all the tires were gone, or the engines were toast. All in all, the burnout party lasted about four hours, and the recuperation lasted another few days. What a party!
Adam tells us that they love doing these burnouts and whenever there’s an excuse to throw a burnout party, they’ll surely find a reason to do so. Funny, they seem to enjoy the fact that cars get broken during these events, and who can resist seeing all those black stripes all over your burnout pad, just know that your friends were willing to put their car through all of that for the sake of a party?
