BURNOUTS
The AIR burnout pad is back! Located next to the iconic AIR drag strip, it is time to make some smoke on Adelaide’s favourite burnout pad.

The judging will be based on several criteria, including continuous smoke, driver control, popped tyres and crowd appeal.

There are 2 classes; Street Class and Pro Class.

Street Class  – Street Class is any Naturally Aspirated (NA) vehicle.
Pro Class – Pro Class is for blown cars, forced induction engines or nitrous.

We will have to cap the numbers in each class, so first in best dressed.

**Safety Checkers will have final say on Class**

The first elimination round for each class will determine the top 15 cars to go through to the semi-final. Following the semi-finals, the top 5 cars in each class will compete in the finals.

All elimination burnouts have a maximum time of 1 minute & 30 seconds. All finals burnouts have a maximum time of 2 minutes.

The winner of the Pro Class takes home $3,000. The winner of Street Class takes home $1,000.

ROLLING DRAGS

Rolling Drags is the newest form of Motorsport to hit Australia. The difference between Rolling Drags and traditional Street Drags is there is a rolling start before the start line. The beauty of Rolling Drags is you don’t need to have the most Horse Power, if you can set your car up to get the power to the ground and utilise the rolling start it can give some of the most unlikely cars an advantage.

The OZ NATS Rolling Drags will be conducted on the AIR Drag Strip over 250m. Cars will form up at marshalling, two cars will set off from marshalling at the same time, cars will reach a maximum speed limit of 40kmph after take-off and maintain until they reach the starting point and get a green flag to start. The first car across the finishing line is the winner!

There will be two Classes, STREET & PRO

Street Class  – Street Class is any Naturally Aspirated (NA) vehicle.

Pro Class – Pro Class is for blown cars, forced induction engines or nitrous.

There will be Practice Rounds, an Elimination Round and Finals.

The winner of Pro Class & Street Class both take home a trophy & prizes.
This competition is not for purpose built drag racing cars. Cars deemed too quick will not be permitted to run. Promotor’s decision is final.
The track will not be fully prepped and timing will not be used.

SUPER SKID
This will be staged at the bottom end of the drag strip (on non-treated traction part of the strip). Spectators will be able to get down and watch!

The Super Skid competition is designed to show off a vehicle’s horsepower and the driver’s ability to use the power to smoke tyres for the longest distance without using brakes. No statics & No Donuts.

The judges will choose the most impressive displays of horsepower, driver talent, engine revs, quantity and length of smoke. There will be minus points for brake use during a skid.

The winner, runner-up and third place will take home a trophy & prizes.

SHOW & SHINE
There will be some tough cars at OZ NATS with many looking to take top honours in the OZ NATS Show & Shine. There are many different classes (below)

As nearly all of the entered the cars are busy competing, the cars are judged during the event with judges walking around during the day. There will also be a designated Show & Shine parking area for entrants to leave their cars during the event.

GO TO WHOA
Go to Whoa is exactly that! Entrants charge off from the start line and head for a double set of lines on the drag strip. When they reach the other end they have to come to a complete stop between the double lines. The car that gets to and stops between the lines the quickest wins!

This requires a combination of good acceleration, car control and braking.

The winner and runner-up take home a trophy & prizes.
