Cairns Burnouts - The legal way

Cairns Mechanics Laurie and Kim have been involved in legal motosport in and around Cairns for a long time.

Federation Automotive are big supporters of “getting burnouts off the streets” and actively promote and follow legal burnout competitions in and around Cairns. The mechanics at Federation Automotive worked on the 6 cylinder 1996 Ford XG Panel Van that gets a workout from Sgt Tony Anderson of Operation SKID.

Cairns has some seriously powerful machines being built and driven around, so we encourage people to head on over to the Burnout competitions that are held regularly at the Cairns Speedway.

Anyone over 16 can compete and no previous experience is required. Entry is $10 and it’s $25 to compete.

Women are encouraged to contest for free.

We love fast cars, we love to see and hear a well tuned engine and burnouts.... Laurie was made for burnouts, Cairns, Laurie, a 454 and burnouts, it all fits.......
