Team Monstr does Summernats!
Posted on January 16 2015
After a strong first 7 Months of trading, we decided to hit the Summernats hard!
With Marshy's IH8FDS confirming the fact that having our name on a burnout car helped with branding, we looked straight at one of the best steerers in the game, Craig "CUTSIK" Whiddett.
Marshy pulled off an awesome burnout, especially considering it was his first time on the pad at the nats, but the crowd loved it, the car loved and put him way up the list for the finals on sunday. A mechanical issue caused an incident on Friday afternoon, but the car was still strong, but pulled out Sunday due to imminent rain.
A fresh look, fresh trim and fresh engine setup ensured that CUTSIK made a big impact at the 'nats as the second Team Monstr burnout car.
With another awesome wrap, modelled after the previous cars, and INSANE trim by Craig's partner Bec, showcasing her business "Trims by Bec".
Craig had the crowd on their feet in all of his burnouts, but a slight brush with the wall lost him points and finished out of the top 3 in the Burnout Masters finals.
The Shannons Pavilion was the place to be if you wanted Monstr Clothing, Monstr hats or check out one of the toughest Brockys ever built! We had a massive trade stand there, which spent most of the time with people buying hats, shirts, and the Monstr Gymwear range proved to be very popular!
The stand was graced with MRGRPA all weekend, a genuine VL HDT Group A, that has been Supercharged, tubbed, trimmed and everything else you can do. The car grabbed everyones attention all weekend, and I'd love a dollar for every photo taken on it. Guys looking at the tags, surprised it was a genuine car, and girls looking at the number plates wondering why we had Mr Grandpa plates on it..
Summernats also saw the release of 4 Team Monstr shirts, 3 of them featuring the Team Monstr cars, and one as a tribute to our super popular Core Vertical Tee..
We have a small number of Team Monstr shirts left at the Online store, jump on over and check them out!
The Team Monstr Maloo spent the weekend outside the stand, grabbing attention and more photos, looking great as usual!
