A GROUP of Wagga “burnout brothers” have embraced their inner revhead nature to qualify for the finals of Summernats 30. 

Jack Seaman, Josh Crimmins, Andrew Coen and Trav Hanson from the Riverina Thrashers left their mark on the popular car festival with a rubber-burning performance. 

The close friends said they would “ride together, and die together” as they hit the skids in the annual burnout competition. 

Mr Seaman, who said motoring runs in his blood, claimed it was a no-brain decision to test his wheels on the track.

He and his vintage teal utility, with its engine protruding from the bonnet, managed to land a place in the finals. 

“It was such a great time and the boys all did really well to make it to the finals,” he said.

“You haven't seen it all until you go to a Summernats and check out some of the cars on display.

“It was good to see the amount of enthusiasts from Wagga and Junee there – we had enough for our own camping area.” 

The boys were ultimately defeated in the finals. 

The Summernats festival is Australia's best known car festival, drawing crowds of more than 100,000, and running annually in Canberra since 1987.
