roll I won Summernats Grand Champion!!!

Under some contraversal circumstances I won the Grand Champion of the summernats,, After being 2 points behind Gary Myers after judging i blitzed the driving events placing 1st in the motorkahna and go-whoa, with gary only place in 5th,, which gave me back the 2 points to make the poin score a draw,, coming down to a drive off in the go-whoa to decide the Champ..

Well according to the judges our times where exactly the same,, even after the commentator saying that Gary over shot the line, and I cut a perfect time the previous 2 times placing 1st and him 5th, he happened to all of a sudden be able to catch up with me with a time 100% the same ,, Thus giving for the first time in history 2 Summernats Grand champions..

For any 1 that was there for the driving events will know i drove the car damn hard (and ****ing loved it), and even got it in the grass for the expression session!!

We also made Top10,, 2nd custom paint and 2nd top pro-street, and a special award given to me by a guest judge from the U.S named GM-Joe who is a very highly reguarded custom car builder and judge.. To me the honour of him picking my car as the most Outstanding Street Machine is by far much greater than anything handed out in the elite awards,

Btw security for the top cars was very well organised this year, and id have to congratulate Chic Henry on this, All in all it was a good event!!!

Re: I won Summernats Grand Champion!!!

Your car is unreal. It i do have admit, you do drive the car very hard, maybe a bit to hard. Like you said, getting the most Outstanding Street Machine would be the best award to get.

The event was great this year. Security was doing there job pretty well except for when a fight broke out. They did nothing at all.
Great car and hope everything goes good for it in the future!

Cheers,
Tiges

yeah he got about 1230rwhp, not sure of the exact figure. Which i think gave him the overall win. I didn't see the finals on sun but he was infront on sat.
As far as i have heard, the only other car to crack the 1000 rwhp was the CAPA supercharge crewman with 1022 hp on sat qualifyning. Not sure what it ran on sun.
