Woman attacked at Summernats

Jonathon Reynolds 7 January 2007 38

The Canberra Times is reporting HERE that a 19 year old woman was randomly and viciously attacked last night at Summernats. From the report it appears that the incident was alcohol induced with disgusting group behaviour egging the perpetrator on.

[ED – We’d be interested if anyone has more details as the CT’s reporting was sketchy]

I totally agree with you Joker. I think it’s ridiculous that Summernats is advertised as a family event, when these days no one can even take their family! And guys that aren’t single have a pretty tough time convincing their girlfriends to let them go, and those that take their girlfriends generally end up in fights when another guy asks to see their girlfriends tits.

They definitely need to stop promoting the woman, start kicking people out who display their body parts within the grounds, get rid of the strip show/wet T-shirt contest/Miss Summernats gig and return it to what it used to be.. a CAR show. When did cars start to = girls?! It’s pathetic.

In this era summernats only attracts alcoholics, bogans, sluts and perverts. They either need to get rid of it or fix it up a hell of a lot!

make that “wouldn’t flash until the crowd said ..”

Oh, and please don’t think I generalising unfairly. They were ALL dirty, deformed lump-goats.

The QA is needed not only for the nasty, saggy, mishapen pinkish brown glands that saw the light of day, but also for the attitude of the buck teeth, flanny-wearing, winnie-blue-smoking, VB-drinking, 60 year old humpback dwarf mole who was flashing them. A couple of these quasimodo-wannabees would flash until the crowd shouted “please”…

One of my former bosses’ favourite job was going around inspecting uniforms before a parade, and reporting the women with visible panty line.

Those fines would probably see the ACT budget back in black.

And you could include ‘hairstyle police’

Issue a ticket for every mullet seen…

VY: quality control for tits on display??
I’m picturing the guy from Chaser’s War on Everything doing a Citizen’s Protection Bureau skit going around Bogannats stamping a big “FAILED QA” all over the saggy baggy ones, and issuing them fines…!
I laughed out loud and people in the office looked at me like what are you on?

Funny how I always manage to be mountain biking/fishing with mates somewhere up in the mountains and miss this bogan BS completely.
They should hold this event out at the new prison site.

Why do we still have this kind of crap happening: it is the 21st Century after all!

Get rid of Chic Henry and put a responsible adult in charge of running the Nats.

Seepi – I was at Summernats two years ago on a Saturday and I was scared for my safety at 4pm. By then almost all the guys were off their face and began pulling at my shirt and jeans. I would hate to be there at 9pm but the exit is always there and any girl who thinks that kind of attention is good, will no doubt get whatever is coming for her.

Easy Al – take your camera, get some pictures of the ‘tits’ to show your missus, and she will understand that you’re going to see the cars. There needs to be some serious quality control measures applied to the tits that see daylight.

From the glowing post bogannats report in the CT today, I’m guessing they got clobbered about the skewed and incorrect (“random attack”) reporting yesterday.
I’d love to go to check out the cars, but I think the missus would think I was only going to check out tits…

i dont think the overemphasis on jack daniels everywhere helps.

snahon snahon 1:20 pm 08 Jan 07

Maybe a rebranding from Summernats to Bogannats is in order ?

Can’t people lose their liquor liscence if they don’t practice responsible service of alcohol? I’d be interested to know whether the relevant people have been alerted.

quality of cars was well down on previous years. i was a bit ticked off that there was a mass unveiling of ‘top cars’ late friday night, some hours after id left.

price gougers were out in force. 4 bucks for a coke! 20 bucks for batteries! amazing.

there were a lot of really good quality cars, but i feel the event needs rejuvenating.

i think they need a competition based on winners of shows throughout the year only being able to enter the top class.

as for other things, like better quality trade stands (same stands every year) – no idea, but give me 300k and i’ll try. i dropped some dough in the trade stands but didnt see anything new.

Take out things like the late night strip show on Saturday night, make it alcohol free, and close it at 8pm every night and you would see the genuine enthusiasts flock to the sight. Sure the numbers may drop, but you’d then get the genuine motor enthusiasts involved rather than the Holden v Ford JD in a can bogans that predominate.

Hell, they might even attract families.

Henry makes BS statements to suit his and no-one else’s agenda. Remember the remarks about preventing urban development nearby which could cramp the style of his once-a-year event.

Have a look at the examples of motor shows/festivals run by genuine enthusiasts which ficus on the cars, not the peripheral issues. Certain towns beg these festivals to come back every year.

Summernats is just a piss drinking fest. Throw in the occasional breast and its nothing but a living, breathing Picture magazine article. It could be so much better than that.

Watching the crowds leave on Saturday night, and seeing that at least 75% of them were pissed, makes me wonder what sort of responsible service of alcohol policy they employed. I’d suggest none, just serve as much as you can.
