One of the movers and shakers on the burnout tour, Pete Grmusa has proved his capabilities with a number of victories around the country. Here to compete for one of the biggest trophies on the tour, Grmusa showed off a new look for his Evil XA ute. We caught up for a quick chat to discover how he found the weekend, what other changes had been made to the ute as well as how Pete felt about his chances ahead of the burnout masters finals (which he would later win)!
