Summernats ends badly (well for us at lest)

By johnnycash 5 January 2009 45

Well, Summernats has come and gone. As a resident of a suburb very close by I must say that it was all going rather swimmingly, that is until the early hours of Sunday morning.

Not content with staggering down the middle of the road yelling “Summernats” at the top of their voices, a group of males decided that we really didn’t need a tree at the front of our house. And thus they smashed it up. That can go with the two that were destroyed in a similar manner during Summernats 2006.

I’m guessing that if significant damage happened to a car at Summernats then there would be action. Trees and locals just don’t seem to count.

The Summernats office were contacted. They didn’t care and told us that it was Canberra Connect’s job to sort out damage caused by Summernats. Canberra Connect (who are always awesome when we have used them) were happy to come and take out the tree but we can do that ourselves. ACT Police were only interested if we could identify the people involved – great. They also told us that no crime statistics relating to Summernats are collected and passed on to the organisers.

What would we like? Well, Mr Henry could spend the money he saved on his speeding fine and get us a new tree but I fear that it would meet the same fate when Summernats rolls around again.

Lots of black smoke from oilers are also defectable.

Depends whether it is prolonged smoking or just the bursts you get from gear changes and acceleration from an oil burner. Even new little Euro-Diesels like the Golf tend to belch smoke when accelerating.

Dear Damo … sounds like you are trying to fit in on the RA site by being beligerant [spelt so you can pro-nounce it], insulting and just plain rude. BerraBoy was just informing us of an event that happened in front of his eyes – with which he saw the Summernats entry sticker on the offending vehicle. He was not comparing city’s drivers; that issue has been flogged and gone on RA. Your comment is irrelevant.

Thanks Xbikee. I was going to reply to Damo but in the end just couldn’t really be bothered.
