Mother Nature took center stage on Saturday night, causing an unexpected interruption to the opening round of the 2023-2024 Perth Motorplex Burnout Championship. Unfortunately, rain during the Saturday night competition session forced an early end to the event.
In accordance with the “Perth Motorplex 2023-2024 Burnout Championship Series Regulations,” championship points will be awarded based on the results from the Saturday Burnout competition, and not the Friday night event, as stated in the West Coast Nats “Event Guide.” We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
Despite the dedicated efforts of the West Coast Nats (WCN) team, only the Sportsman class managed to complete their lineup before the rain intervened.
Peter Flint, Promoter of West Coast Nats, shared his thoughts on the situation, saying, “We were hoping to avoid the rain, but unfortunately, only the Sportsman class had a full run. West Coast Nats was still a tremendous success, with 270 entrants having a great time and thousands of enthusiastic fans soaking in the atmosphere. We’ve found a solution for the championship points that should satisfy everyone, and we’re all looking forward to the next round.”
As a result, championship points for the Sportsman class will be awarded as per the regulations. For the Open and Blown classes, a resolution has been reached following discussions with West Coast Nats.
All competitors in the Open and Blown classes who were entered, scrutineered, and ready to compete will be awarded the same points as the 20th place finisher (40 points). This approach ensures that all participants in the WCN Round 1 receive some form of reward in championship points. You can check the updated points HERE.
The next exciting round of the Perth Motorplex Burnout Championship is Burnout Boss 8, where $15,000 in prize money is up for grabs, promising intense action on the horizon!
