Whats the crack with doing these things (sprint, tyre testing) when you are on a stand cos I know previous years you haven't been able to.

I'll smoke you all out on the track!

IIRC the runs are about ?5-7 each, so it can prove to be an expensive
hobby if your planing on doing a few runs. Timing gear is supposed to
be good though, I've found it to be accurate.

Mind its good to have all the watchers lines up along side the strip when you fluff it like I did one year [:D]

They've made things a lot easier this year as well with cars on stands
being allowed to run the strip - should see some of the more exotic
bits of kit running that would normally be parked up.

had a quick look on the sight and the more you buy the cheaper it gets, plus you can have passengers (if you want that extra weight!)

Don't worry about your car being standard mate.

We all have to start somewhere.

At least you have a good base to start from.

See you there
