Video: Aussies Show How To Do A Proper Burnout In A Blown Commodore

Sometimes you just need a hellacious burnout to make it through the day. There’s just something about seeing a muscle car burn the tires off that just gets our blood pumping. Well this isn’t quite a muscle car, although the blown V8 under this ’79 Commodore could sure pass off in a muscle car, but wow do these Aussies know how to do a proper burnout!

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 9.23.47 PMHeld at the Winton Motor Speedway, the burnout was a part of a competition in Easter Car Mania #2. Driver Andrew Pool from the very beginning performed an incredible burnout. At one point the vehicle even threw the rubber carcasses off the rear tires that prompted both driver and passenger to get out and inspect the car.

After a quick inspection of the car, they both climbed back in the Holden Commodore and once again unleashed the blown V8. Amazingly, the burnout was only good enough for third place during the Easter Car Mania #2! Think about that, someone judged that two other vehicles performed better burnouts than Andrew! Clear politics or rigged we say, because wow was that an impressive burnout!

We have to say it again, these Aussies clearly know how to do a proper burnout! What’s your opinion on the burnout? Have you seen better? Leave us a comment below with a link to the video, if we think it’s better we might even feature it here!
