First sighting run, straight off the trailer, so to speak:
8.35s @ 163mph - a new European record for an aircooled VW.
Second run: Lots of wheelspin meant Richie backed off and pulled the shoot early - resulting in an 8.905s @ 121mph and Number 1 qualifying spot!
Saturday was a case of deja vu all over again. Up, up and away...
Just like the good old days.
Sunday rolled around and it was Eliminations round 1.
8.206s @ 167.9mph - a new, new European record for an aircooled VW and elimination from competition - oh well.
Congrats to Richie and the team - a 7sec run beckons...
