Formal, Canberra College style

For many of us the college formal is the first time we’ll really dress up and wear a bow tie and/or get makeup done professionally.

And then there’s Canberra College, which gets pink burnouts.

The video was posted to YouTube by MrProman 55 with this note:

Pink burnout from mazda 2 Canberra College Formal

Brevity remains the soul of wit.

It is interesting to read about how so many people dislike and discourage burnouts but if you watch the video or turn up to a formal you will notice that the crowd is split into two groups “people interested in the arrivals” “people interested in the cars” watch the video again and see how many people are cheering and standing on the road encourage the next two RX3’s to do burnouts.

Not a smart place for a burnt out I have to admit but I’m more offended by the foul mouth little youth right at the end saying “how’d they do that sh**”.

Hmm….what do I drive…..should I answer that……will half these peanuts believe me….will some whacko use the info to track me down and kick my dog and set fire to my parrot….decisions decisions.

Allow me to riddle thee.

My two ‘special cars’ have a displacement of 669 Cubic inches but that will soon become 791.

They have 6 doors and 6 headlights between em’ and only one was made in Oz.

One is Super and one is Grand.

And I’ll leave it at that…..

Good luck!

i like that skid thats nice

So because this guy did a 2 second burnout he deserves to have a car worth 20K or so crushed?

Fine him fair enough. I am sick of wowsers calling for cars to be crushed for minor offences.

Are you kidding? You think that’s a minor offence, do you? Apart from being a total moron with a penis-size issue, he was way too close to people. All you fools who think that was nothing should try a stint in the Ambulance Service, and go and pick up body parts from the road that are caused by morons like this jerk.

Well said.

Interesting to see that a simple typo (2 instead of SHIFT + 2…. @ ) can spark such debate Re: Mazda 2 (which it clearly wasn’t) or RX3, Rotary Vs Piston, Jap Vs Whatever, Burnouts in public places, etc.
I know it was a typo because I was the one who posted the video on Youtube in the first place.
By the way, I am not in favour of such behaviour which is why I posted it in the first place.

It appears the “Mazda 2” was a simple typo, now corrected to “Mazda @ Canberra College formal”

One is a SuperRoo – or at best a former 6 cylinder auto XY mocked up to be far more than it ever was new.
318 would suggest Chrysler, and would easily be swapped for 440ci. So I’m thinking a 7L Chrysler Grand Centura 😉

If someone did that in an area surrounding myself and my formal I would have walked to the end of the carpark, greeted him and struck him in the mouth with a clenched fist. When he looked at me with astonishment and asked what that was for I would have done it again

Excellent.

I’d like to point out that despite having vastly fewer cars per capita (around of 4 to 8 times less depending on country), SE Asia has considerably more deaths per capita as a result of vehicle accidents, compared to Australia.

You have seen how they drive when they get here, not surprising.

We are rotary. The rest of you will be piston.

Sorry, I should clarify since I started the whole ‘crush that car’ debate. I don’t want it crushed for doing a burnout, I want it crushed for being a Jap POS rotary shitbox that only a man with a small penis would drive.

Thank you.

I thought small penises drove big engines, not tiny engines?

What do you drive, Capt?

I went to said formal, and there were cops sitting on the exit, I’m fairly certain he would have been pulled over about 30 seconds after this video cuts off.

Dear Aronde

Good, don’t do it then.

Bye Bye.

I personally believe that it’s an amazing piece of engineering to get rotary engine actually working so well done to mazda for persevering. Of course pricing it out of the range of most bogans would completely change people’s opinion but why is the GTR so popular with hoons? Cos it is cheap, cheap and cheap, easy to modify and beats most other cars hands down for speed. Most popular car at police auctions as well I’m told.

Get BMW or Porsche to put a rotary engine into their cars and prove it works and people would be gushing about how amazing it was.

PS 50% of men have an average or smaller size penis so 50% of cars are owned by men with small penises. You didn’t get that off a particular commercial lately did you? Imagine a commercial about a fat skank driving a hyundai excel…

Minor offence? I am no wowser but given how close the onlookers are to the vehicles doing burnouts this could easily have turned into something much more tragic.

Yeah but it didn’t so who gives a sh*t?

I’m sick of what ifs being the so called basis of logical arguments these days. Further demonstration we live in a dumbed down, wowser society.

Actually I have been rafting in Tully and also on the Zambezi. Even jumped out of a few planes and off some some bridges. But yet despite my ‘living a little’ by your definition I still believe doing burnouts within a few feet of onlookers is dangerous and a risk not worth taking.

Reading this made me think of my own formal many years ago, Yep we had heaps of done up cars, heaps of burnouts, Police were in attendance that’s where I was with in inches of being stuck by a car, but it wasn’t any of the cars entertaining us with burnouts, I was within inches of being stuck by the POLICE CAR in a hurry in get out of drive way at convention center to ruin a harmless bit of fun.
Give these kids a break they aren’t hurting any one most of them can only manage a puff of smoke from the back tires anyway, and I never heard anything other than cheering for more from bystanders.

What an idiot. Burnouts are fun, sure, but smashing into onlookers and other people’s cars isn’t. He was lucky this time.

I’m pretty free and easy about road rules, but that was just stupid.

So when someone is doing twice the speed limit but they don’t kill anyone. Does it still make it okay?

Its called minimising risk and thinking of not just you and your mates. That was a plainly stupid thing to do.

This seems to be a Canberra firmal thing… muscle cars, sports cars, burnouts, drag races seem to be a fixture at these events. I’ve seen formals in a number of states and as far as I’m aware it is unique to Canberra.

At every formal outside of Canberra I have ever seen the kids have been content chipping in $30 each and rocking up in a stretch limo. (and on one pleasing occassion, a Mr Whippy Van.

IMHo the focus on muscle and racing cars at Canberra formals brings the tone and class of the whole night down and I’m surprised that so many families and even schools seem to condone the hooning behaviour that is displayed on formal nights.

Surely you could have a rule… anyone caught hooning in cars before the formal will not be allowed in. Instead most schools have a big event of the ‘arrivals’, and the whole school community turns up to see the kids in their cars.

I love a good burnout. But …

1. Rotary. FAIL! Driving a rotary is the automotive equivalent of tattoing ‘Dickhead’ on your forehead.

2. Pink smoke. BIG FAIL! Save the pink smoke for the next time you are on Oxford Street, weaering sequined lycra bicycle pants, while dancing on the back of a Mardi Gras float.

3. Note dickhead driver passing over the drain grate. Imagine that POS suddenly gained more traction with the rear left tyre while passing over said grate. POS Mazda suddenly kicks to the right. Any cars or pedestrians in that immediate area ??? Just do a quick search on You-Tube if you want to see examples of what can happen at the drags when one tyre gets more traction than the other. It aint rocket science.

At least his mates had half a brain between them. They could see this was not the time or place. Interesting to note all three of those cars come from interstate. I don’t think Jon at RX Engineering will care much if we all have a group-cry about the burnout. He owns/owned RX Engineering but I don’t think that is his car.

But I don’t hear people screaming for anyone caught talking on their mobile phone to get their car crushed.

I’d support that, actually.

“It’s not a Mazda 2. It’s a Mazda RX3. Big, big difference.”

Haha, indeed! Actually that was a 4 door sedan, so would that make it an 808 or Capella, or something other than an RX model anyway?

RX3’s came in 4 door form too…

Only difference between an RX3 and 808 is that the RX3 came with a rotary from factory, the 808 came with a piston motor.

As for burnouts, who cares. Probably less dangerous than texting while driving or driving while intoxicated!

And if you see the lady in red she was lined up nicely till she stepped back smartly. Just a typical burnout driver – snall dick, short arse, no brains.

Wow, that’s super cool, and so classy. Pink burnouts to pick up the chicks maaaate.
