Drachten 2009 Pt.2
Drachten Dragraces, 10-12 july, Part 2
Small report on saturday 11
Nothing to test, run or qualify on friday due to heavy rainfall, yet a good atmosphere in the paddock and our shelter, prepping,benchracing, socializing and bbq-ing, rainy days can be filled worse.
Around 11.00 on saturday the skies cleared and racing somehow started,SuperPro ET started around 13.15.
Redlighted my first pass, made a 8.67 run, popped the chutes
After pass 1, on the background John Gerritsen`s BelAir who upgraded from Pro E/T to SuperPro E/T
Second pass, redlighted again after a long rolling burnout
Made a nice and clean second run despite the red light
Minutes away from a hefty adrenalin rush
Arnie, my eyes before the start, i totally depend on him, directs me to the perfect starting position, does the final second checks and works me towards pre-staging.
Third and last pass on Saturday
Got past that redlighting thing, did a 8.61 run with an 255 Km/u
During tirth pass.
See you all on Drachten 3, 21-23 august 2009
