While we Canucks are dutifully scraping the ice off of our windshields every morning, the car nuts in Australia are in the middle of their summer, smashing burnout world records with their shirts off. Sigh.
Apparently it's something of a point of national pride Down Under, where they've been battling to take and re-take the world record for the biggest group burnout for the past few years.
In 2017, Saudi Arabia swiped the title from Australia with a gathering of 119 vehicles all ruining their tires (and probably some clutches, too) in what was then the world's largest group burnout.
But just recently, at the 2019 Summer Nationals in Australia, the good and tan people of the continental nation recaptured the crown by getting 126 revved-up automotive enthusiasts to arrange themselves in two long lines and all step on the brake and gas, all at the same time.
Check out the video. There's 'heaps' of Fords and Holdens, as well as plenty of big, straw sun hats.
It was truly something to behold, especially via drone, but for those who were actually present, it must have been truly something to inhale, too.
That cloud of rubber and exhaust can't have smelled very good. But the scent of victory? Well, that's always sweet.
They'd better not get too comfy down there in Oz, however, because the American Gumball Rally has already posted their rallying cry to YouTube.
