The Sydney Motorsport Park burnout pad is back! Located next to the iconic Turn 1 at SMSP, it is time to make some smoke on Sydney’s awesome 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.

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