Red CentreNATS: 2019 Program the Best Yet

Red CentreNATS, Australia’s ultimate festival of wheels, is shifting into top gear for its 2019 instalment with a jam-packed program released to the public today.

The popular event is in its fifth year and will see thousands of car enthusiasts converge on Alice Springs from Friday, 30 August to Sunday, 1 September for an action-packed weekend of drag racing, street cruising, burnouts, live music and much more.

This year’s program is set to attract even larger crowds, with the addition of a new ‘Heavy Hitter’ drag racing feature category and the biggest Burnout Masters field in Australia.

The new invitational category in the drag racing program will boast 20 incredibly fast street and race cars, with a huge $20,000 in prize money and tow support on offer.

Confirmed entrants include ‘ALLSHOW’ – street-driven 2000hp VK Commodore from MPW Performance in Melbourne that was first unveiled at Red CentreNATS 3, and last year’s Red CentreNATS Grand Champion – Troy David’s twin-turbo FJ Holden Ute from Darwin that recently hit the dragstrip for the first time.

Racing kicks off from 7.30pm on Saturday, 31 August under lights at Alice Springs Inland Dragway.

The 2019 instalment of Red CentreNATS will also feature the biggest single field in Burnout Masters history, including Summernats, with the best drivers and vehicles from around the country gearing up to compete at the much-anticipated event.

Some of the Territory’s top talent will face off against Australia’s best, vying for big prize money and one of three qualifying spots at Summernats 33 in January 2020 as part of the Burnout Masters qualifiers.

The line-up includes reigning Summernats Burnout Masters champion Jake Myers and his father Gary Myers – the undisputed king of burnouts as well as more than 30 other exceptional cars and drivers.
