Cars in Clouds: Photos of Burnouts

At first glance, some of Simon Davidson‘s photographs look like Harry Potter stills showing flying cars floating in the clouds. They’re actually a glimpse into the burnout subculture that’s growing in Australia. These are competitions in which drivers try to create as much smoke as they can by spinning their tires in place.

    there’s no ‘Growing’ subculture, it’s always been there – Summernats, Bathurst etc have been alive and well since the 80’s.

    And yes, very cool pictures

     In Australia, we use Tyres actually.  We don’t mix up our lethargy with our rubber.

    Oh – yeah – also called “Bogan’s”.  It is a shame we can’t export them and replace them with smarter and harder working immigrants – who often have a better command of the English language too.
