Great story from STREET MACHINE about Canberra CIT students and teachers bringing a FARMTRUCK to life for Summernats 31! - - - - - RECENT STREET MACHINE MAGAZINE ARTICLE “EVERY year we wonder: how will Summernats be able to top that? And every year, Andy Lopez and his crew somehow manage to do it. Surely they couldn’t top last year’s effort of bringing Farmtruck and AZN – our favourite duo of crazy street racers from Street Outlaws – down to Canberra to shake hands, sign autographs and kiss babies. Well, they’ve managed it by inviting them back but taking it up another level by having them along as entrants.” Street Machine READ FULL STORY BELOW SEE THE TRUCK FOR YOURSELF Tickets online here Canberra Institute of Technology SUMMERNATS

Every March from 1985 to 1992 thousands flocked to the shores of Lake Burley Griffin to witness one of the more spectacular events on the Canberra Festival prog...ram, the Capital 7 Birdman Rally. Canberra’s first Birdman Rally was held on Sunday 17 March 1985 and attracted 26 competitors. Prize money of $10,000 was on offer for the first entrant to fly 50 metres.

By 1987 the number of entrants had reached 39. On a beautiful, sunny autumn day the estimated 100,000-plus spectators cheered on the brave, innovative or just plain mad birdmen and birdwomen leaping off the 10m-high platform in the hope of flying 50 metres and collecting the $10,000. Whether gliding gracefully or nose-diving straight into the water, contestants were assisted back to shore by members of the ACT Water Police, who used the occasion as a training exercise for their divers.
