The fantastic 2002 Dry Lakes Racing Association Speed Week concluded recently at Lake Gardiner with several new speed records. Top speed of the week went to John Lynch in his Bellytank at 297.5 mph. Castlemaine Rod Shop's proprietor, Rod Hadfield, pedaled the big blown-bronze Commodore to 248 mph while Mark Hadfield pushed his '67 Mustang to 181 mph.
Mark Hardinge screwed 185 mph from his '34 Ford roadster while Mike Davidson ran 153 mph in his naturally aspirated, flathead-powered T-bucket. Bike racer Peter Arundel rode his '28 Indian down the long black line at 158 mph.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
