enjoy 8-) Could be the next generation competitor , wonder what fuel they will be using in the future .

Personally for me, from one who has raced many years ago ( circuit) I did find it different from the other side of the fence.
It was however nice to walk around the pits and see the engineering skills and modifications that had been carried out in the pursuit of speed :worthy:

:D I did see your post earlier but hadn't got round to replying, I've been running round like a blue arsed fly all day :ill:
I saw the band last night here in Liverpool and it sounds like the same sort of venue and numbers in the audience as you attended, brilliant show and also the support act, not sure if yours was the same but we had Rodney (two guitars) Branigan :worthy:
Just as well you decided against the Pod it pissed down all day, so no racing and an early trundle home :cry:
Hey ho roll on next weekend :yup:

Quite a good day all in all, there was a stiff headwind so no improvement on my current time but it was fairly quiet so we got quite a few runs in. Had a good chat with James on an 1125R drag bike recently back from a tuning session at Twin Motorcycles 8-)
There was a nice mixture of vehicles yesterday also including a Willys coupe, Plymouth Challenger a very nice 69 Camaro, a few of the guys from UK Drag Karts 🤯were the there too
Got home around 9pm absolutely knackered
16th of July for the next one :yup:

Glad you had a good day gus , after your " good chat with James on an 1125R drag bike" I’m sure Paul will be along shortly to ask a few questions .
