8.2s @ 167mph

Santa Pod hosted the Festival of Power over the Easter weekend and Richie Webb was there with his 'new' Cabrio complete with a winter's worth of tweaks. He entered in the Super Comp class which has a class break-out index of 8.90s.

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...
