Eastern Creek Drags - Wed 26th Feb

It's probably going to rain out now that I'm mentioning it but here goes anyway.

I'm going to the drags on the upcoming Wednesday and would love to see as many late model Ford owners racing or watching as can make it.

Check out this site for the relevant info if you have any questions.

Well I just got back from the Creek and nothing on the car broke which is more than some of the other competitors on the night can say.

Best time I ran for the night in the Sprint was a 14.661 @ 94.12mph, 2.233 60ft.

Best 60ft overall was a 2.189.

All runs on street tyres with a race weight (incl. driver) of ~ 1695kg.

I was a little disappointed that there did not appear to be even 1 other Ford racing that was 1990>. Certainly no EA or newer Falcons.
