Red CentreNATS 07 is in full throttle in Alice Springs, with hundreds of entrants showing off their pride and joy to eager car fans.

NT Major Events Company CEO Tim Watsford said Red CentreNATS is a must-do for car enthusiasts of all ages.

“Red CentreNATS is such a unique event. Apart from the action-packed program and iconic location, it is also the only place in Australia where you can legally drive your highly modified, unregistered car on the streets thanks to a temporary permit system,” he said.

“It’s hard to explain what to expect at Red CentreNATS. It’s the kind of event you need to experience for yourself. Each year word spreads about what a cracking weekend this is, so don’t miss out. Secure your spot as a Red CentreNATS 08 entrant now.”

Each year the Red CentreNATS program offers more and more automotive action for entrants and spectators in the stunning heart of Australia. As well as the popular burnouts, Garrett Advancing Motion Heavy Hitters Drag Racing, Yeperenye Shopping Centre Street Parade, Lasseters Motorkhana, Great Northern 4WD Course, Shannons Show N Shine and more, new additions to this year’s event include Trailer Reversing, Skid Row and the Jetpack Entertainment stunt show featuring jetpacks, fly boards and more.

Next year’s event will again take place over the Father’s Day weekend, from 2-4 September 2022, with more program details revealed nearer the time.

Summernats co-owner Andy Lopez said he was stoked to be opening entries for Red CentreNATS 08.

“I absolutely cannot wait to meet everyone in the middle again in 2022,” he said.
