HALTECH REVS UP SUMMERNATS 36
The engine management “wizards” return as the naming rights partner for the Horsepower Heroes Dyno Comp
Haltech is once again going to be a part of the Summernats action for the festival’s 36th instalment, sponsoring the Horsepower Heroes Dyno Comp at the popular event.
“Haltech and SUMMERNATS have been cruising together longer than Thelma and Louise, we are something of a SUMMERNATS power couple!” Haltech Marketing Manager, Richrd Shumack, said.
“If you’ve been living under a rock, or maybe just a really big tyre, SUMMERNATS is the Coachella of car festivals, minus the flower crowns and plus a whole lot more engine roar.”
The Horsepower Heroes dyno competition is billed as the stage on which Australia’s toughest rides battle it out for the crown across several classes including Boosted and Aspirated V8, Six-Cylinder, Four-Cylinder and Rotary.
At SUMMERNATS 35, competition was still in the MPW Dyno Cell with Barra challenging LS for the top spot. When the dust settled, it was Cody Hunt and his 2009 VE Clubsport sitting at the top of the table.
Laying down 1643hp at the hubs during the finals on Sunday, Cody’s 427ci, twin-turbo Dart LS wagon took out both the outright win as well as the Eight Cylinder Forced Induction award. The Clubsport is controlled by a Haltech Nexus R5 system and tuned by Aaron from ASG Motorsports.
“This partnership is like putting a monster turbocharger on a big block, and we’ve got something special planned,” Richard said.
HALTEH have enjoyed a long-term partnership with SUMMERNATS, and this year, they are ramping up their commitment.
“For the first time SUMMERNATS 36, entrants will be able to book their spot on the Horsepower Heroes dyno before the event to ensure they don’t miss out,” Richard said.
The online Horsepower Heroes registration portal will be launched soon, so keep an eye out for more details.
“We couldn’t be happier to have the legends from Haltech back to headline the Horsepower Heroes dyno comp. It’s been an awesome partnership so far,” Summernats Co-Owner, Andy Lopez, said.
Richard said Haltech isn’t kidding around when it says it is cooking up something special.
“We’re not just slapping our name on a banner and calling it a day,” Richard said.
“We’ll have hand-picked selection of customer cars on display, with a few hitting the dyno to prove the metal, which will ensure that Horsepower Heroes delivers a sensory overload in the best way possible!
“To sum it up, Haltech’s Horsepower Heroes is like adding nitrous to your Nana’s minivan, it’s going to be an unforgettable ride.
“Mark your calendars, book your accommodation and get your tickets and don’t forget your earplugs. SUMMERNATS 36 is going to be LOUD, and Haltech’s making sure of it!”
