There weren't any BAs but there were plenty of makes & models & a good crowd turnout.

Weather was a bit chilly & windy which made for some real fast times.

I love the sound of the V8's but I must say the sheer acceleration of the turbo's blows me away.

Check out http://www.motorsport.com.au/DragRace.htm for details of future drag & cruze meets.

hey mavss...did you see that capri??!!

holy crap that thing was quick...it did a 8.4 from memory.

One thing I found funny was the poor bugger in the white ef fairmont...I mean its good that he is having a go but he got spanked everytime, same goes for the two red eb/d xr8's. No offence if it was anyone from here.

And what the heck was that little green ute thing? It was crazy!

Also did you see that purple XF? I think it was supercharged beacuse you could hear the whinge..but it had a fullboost.com.au sticker on it, but I guess that site is for both.

BTW it was a bit cold wasn't it.

There is no competition going on FoMoCo4eva. Everyone is just trying to better their times (although there was the occasional drag between the hotted up versions).

They're just having some fun.

The purple XF was turbocharged & did pretty well.

It was a little chilly but a good night nonetheless - especiall the burnouts - they were great. It was sad to see the first entrant blow his motor though - real shame - but at least he gave it a go.

Yeah, was a shame he did his engine, still the burnouts in reverse by the guy in the VP ute and that twin turbo capri that did an 8.2 @ 175mph with a fair wheelstand from the line was just awesome to watch.
I loved the XP sedan and the fairlane, man were they loud, but it was a little chilly in shorts and a T-shirt.
I had our EF2 fairmont in the carpark, same, white without the bodykit and the tickford wings and after seeing him really had wished I had entered to see how it'd have gone. No comparison to any of those cars, still would have been fun though.

BTW Mavss, if you have mavss plates I think I followed you out of the car park, nice car mate.
