Come early January every year hordes of motoring enthusiasts decend on Canberra much to the dismay of the usually sedate floriade and gallery set. Without exception January is yet again set to see some incredible, and some incredibly loud street machines cruising the bitumen of Northbourne Ave and Lonsdale st in Braddon as the 21st Street Machine Summernats is once again hosted at EPIC from 3 – 6 January.
Almost as if reading to a well reheased script, Promoter Chic Henry has rolled out the “We’re not expecting any trouble this time” according to this article on ABC Online.
He goes on to say that “All of our security personnel are briefed to look out for anybody, female or otherwise, who may be in somewhat of a distressed state.” Which does make me slightly wonder what the security personnel have been on the look out for in previous years.
No doubt it will be heaps of fun for some, and something that others will avoid like the plague.
