My fastest time was 17.44 seconds for the 1/4 mile run, not too bad for a 36 year old car ;o)

Great fun and very well organised, well worth 15 quid for as many runs as you like!

June 2005

Fitted a set of 15 x 7 Wolfrace wheels to replace my 14 x 6 Wolfraces.  The front wheels required spacers, but luckily they came with the set of wheels I bought.  I treated myself to a new set of Avon ZV3 lower profile 205 x 50 x 15" tyres.

June 2005

Discovery of chassis number etched in chassis, I was pleased to find it still matched my chassis plate number!  The number will be stamped on the flat of the upright underneath the top cross member.  It can be difficult to see, as it is normally covered in paint.  Scrape off the paint, then use wire wool to clean the area.
