Yep it's that time of year again. Street Machine Summernats is held in Canberra and it is Australia's biggest horsepower party. This year is set to be bigger than ever with over 1700 cars. We take a look at the new burnout pad and catch up with some of the rides coming through scrutineering.

Day two at Summernats didn't really kick off until midday with the Shannons City Cruise down Northbourne where a good selection of cars cruised in front of 30,000 people they reckon. Then the cruising fired up along with judging and more scrutineering. Unfortunately the EPA knocked the schedule around so we missed out on the burnouts, if there was any to be had. We didn't hear or see any, but we saw plenty of tough rides. Tomorrow is going to go off with burnouts, cruising, go-to-whoa, show 'n' shine, dyno, the unveiling, Hilltop Hoods and that Guinness World Record Attempt.

Friday at Summernats 26 started with a bang. First up there was the Guinness World Record for Largest Simultaneous Burnout with 69 cars on the pad at the same time, then it was into burnout qualifying with a massive amount of action there. All the while there was constant cruising, show car judging and dyno (which we'll try and get to today) and then it was time for the unveiling in the Meguairs Pavilion and the Hilltop Hoods on the main stage - and I've got to say it was the first time I'd heard them, but they were AWESOME!

Jake Edwards goes back to back at Summernats 26 with another win in Horsepower Heroes with 1666rwhp (and equates to over 2000hp at the flywheel). The car runs a 496ci big block with a massive 106mm Garrett turbo with EFI and methanol. It has run 7.88 at 179mph on the quarter, so it's not just a dyno queen.

Check out how much exhaust energy it produces at the end of the video where it blew my second camera over even though it was at least 8 feet away

Summernats 26 broke a Guinness World Record for the most amount of cars in simultaneous burnout on January 4, 2013 in Canberra, Australia. When the massive blanket of smoke eventually cleared, Chris Sheedy from Guinness World Records told the 10,000 plus crowd that exactly 69 cars had managed to complete a 30 second burnout. Sixty nine. That's a 'Nats kind of number.

Drivers came from all across Australia to fry their tyres together in this historic event, some traveling thousands of kilometres from Western Australian and Northern Queensland to take part in the rare feat.

276 tyres x 30 seconds x over 35,000 horsepower = 1 world record.

Thank you to the drivers, staff and sponsors for making this incredible event happen.
