KILLARNEY DRAGS OUTTA TIME
date: 17 October 2015 | Words & photos: RaceMasteR J | Killarney
I must apologize for the
extreme delay on these pics, I know there were a few guys waiting
for them. I was actually thinking of not even publishing any of
these as this was the day that the timing system started showing
As some of you might know by now, Killarney’s drag timing
system has been a bit inconsistent of late and is proving to be
a nightmare. An event all about time, doesn’t have its time
keeper. Unfortunately these times are not recognized by MSA and
I cannot use them on the Drag List.
It’s not Killarney’s fault. They found the issue and
fixed it. But then the problem returned. They sent it away to
the company who developed the system. It came back after a few
days of testing with no faults. Yet when the system is needed,
it starts acting up.
Now as some others might be wondering about my Drag List, well
yes, I have not updated the list because of this very issue. It’s
unfortunate but I just have to wait for things to be sorted out
properly and then I will have to wait more to monitor the consistency.
I hope they manage to fix the system sooner than later. I see
MSA has officially introduced a list system as a new national
class. Seems like I got some competition now. Kidding. I think
it’s a great idea by MSA. Let’s see everyone pull
together and add to that national list.
As for me, we’ll stick to Cape Town’s fastest…
as soon as the timing system is back up!!!
