Here’s some coverage
from the last MSA drag event at Killarney International Raceway.
The atmosphere was calm and rather relaxing for such a fast paced
event. It’s one of the many reasons why a lot of Street
2 Strip racers have moved over into this category of racing.
You have a lot of time to prepare your car between the multiple
number of runs available, and there’s a lot more grip due
to the track being prepped.
There were quite a few new cars from this event who managed to
knock some old timers off the Drag List. But my car of the day
has to go to Jason Williams Mk1 Golf for jumping up about 10 spots
and finally getting into the 11 second bracket. Well done Jason.
Welcome back Mr. Jatiem. For those of you who don't remember,
this was the once upon a time Speed and Sound sponsored Unto Turbo
and Raceweb Magazine cover car #02. This car has been in retirement
for many years so it was great to see it back on the strip again.
Yet another old timer coming out of retirement. The ex Essa 318i
Turbo now belonging to Sulaiman Effendi running in the 11's all
VW Polo TDi - What emission's problem??
There’s been some talk about the Drag
List being scrapped at the end of the year.
Well, not scrapped, but Reloaded! Yes, we’re going to start
fresh come 26th December 2015. So make sure you get your cars
sorted for the end of year bash, everyone’s got a chance
to be on the list. Watch out Ralph!
Team SRD on the BMW S1000RR's - Both Garion
and Heinrich ran 8.9 second passes. The BMW S1000RR fast becoming
one of the most desirable drag racing bikes to date. It's not
hard to see why.
Nissan Sentra/Sabre STi VVL's were a dime a dozen. Most of these
cars have transformed from Street 2 Strip racer to
drag racer now.
What a sleeper! Running 12 flat!
