ill get some pics up later.
RESPECT TO STEVE!!
side note hes also the limo driver for my bros wedding coming up!
all those get judged by me, the king of kings..
read the whole street commodores thread started by cheatr, can see both sides of the aurgument.. massive confusion from organisers him being pissed off, but i guess he could have injuried someone buy proceeding how he did.
pics or it didnt happen!!! can imagine it happened alot
What was with that? Im confused with the Nuckingfuts situations.
I think in qualifying there was a fire and he kept going, disobeying the fire marshall.What was with that? Im confused with the Nuckingfuts situations.
Then, what, 2 cars before he was due to compete that burnout shown in the vid he was told he was disqualified because of his actions, so I'm guessing then the officials weren't gonna let him on the track so he forced his way through. I think initially he got a lifetime ban which was later downgraded to a one year ban. He issued a statement of apology.
After sitting in line for 4 hours on Sunday he approached the burnout pad and was told he was disqualified. He was miffed by this, understandably, and later said they had 40 hours to notify him of his disqualification so why did they wait till he approached the pad and notify him at the last second. He admits he was wrong in nudging the car forward to move the Marshall's blocking him out of the way and going ahead with his burnout and as mentioned has issued an apology and deeply regrets his actions.
from the street commodores thread, summary
he hit the wall in Qual firemarsh checked the car, waved the tow vehicle off saying it was not needed, waved the guy off the pad, saying he'd finished, he got his Qual ticket. 40hours later and after waiting 4 hours in line and getting to the front of the line, past more officals that said nothing, they then tried telling him that he was disqualified when he was on next.. hence the vid of him being pissed and proceeding onto the pad.
EDIT: ClairBear bet me to it, and with vid!
Thanks for clearing that upNot true. During qualifying he hit the wall and stopped the car. The fire marshall after inspecting the car waved him through to the exit where he approached the next marshall who said "well done" with a big smile and gave him a ticket. No mention of being disqualified.
clairbear showed the video, he was DQ for dropping a burnout on the pad while there was the marshalls on it.

That was one sick burnout if I may say so
Roses are red, Voilets are blue, I let off the gas & hear tsutututu!

The overall impression i get from both this and other incidents is that Summernats Security and Officials are a bunch of hot-headed roid junkies.
Over-reacting like that one marshal did, kicking the car and then dragging him off the car and pushing him around isnt on. No matter what had happened. That's what security is for. There is nowhere in his job description that includes getting physically violent with competitors, or damaging their cars.
IMO he should also be sacked, and banned from working at future Summernats events because of his unproffesionalism.

Official update from the Summernats crew says he is banned from entering at Summernats 26, but his lifetime ban has been lifted on the grounds that nowhere in the rules does it specifically say that disobeying marshall directions will result in a permanent ban. He's been invited to spend next year as part of the burnout crew to 'see what it's like".
