Went to Santa Pod raceway in the UK on Sunday.
I managed to get in 2 runs, as it was very busy. The weather was wet to start with, so I didn't expect my first run to be any good, it was also my first time at a drag strip.
I got to the line, I was against a little Renault Clio 16v. I held the throttle at 3.5k and then slipped the clutch out when the lights went green.
The Clio got a better start, as my car just span all through 1st gear, then part way through 2nd, the back end squirmed like a bitch, but once I had traction I caught the clio up easily and passed him. My time was 17.072 at 85.02mph
My 2nd run was later on and the weather had dried quite a bit, I was also in the other lane this time. I did a very nice burnout on the start line, just for entertainment
and snaked up to the lights. Same again, 3.5k and then slipped the clutch out, this time no major wheel spin, the car just went. I chirped the tires changing to 2nd, then again changing to 3rd.... I could feel this was a better run. I got 16.293 at 75.66mph
I'm pleased with that, my car is standard engine wise and it was my first time at a drag strip. My mates Sierra Cosworth did 13 second run against a TVR Tuscan and beat it
The Cosworth is putting out 350bhp+ with 4wd
Quickest run of the day, was a Nitrous Motorbike, 139mph across the line
