This month the 25th Summernats car festival took over Canberra, the capital city of Australia. Spanning three and a half days, the Summernats event (which is short for ‘Summer Nationals’) attracted 1500 cars and a hundred thousand spectators. One of the big drawcards was the Horsepower Heroes; an invite only dyno shootout. This year’s Horsepower Hero winner was Jake Edwards’ 8sec Holden Torana. How much power did it make? 1584.8hp at the wheels.
