UK Drag Day 2 York Raceway

This weekend saw some hardcore action at the second UK Drag Day , held at York Raceway in Yorkshire . Some great wheelie action entertained the crowd , while Paul Hamilton from VWSpeedshop was out testing his Turbo T1 engined Bay Panel Van . He only got in 2 runs as an oil leak dripping onto the turbo stopped further play . He did however run a 13.2 first run and a 12.0 @ 114 mph second run , backing off in third as it was wheelspinning as the boost came in , awesome . His previous best was a 12.6 last year . Best of all , he drove the van the 2.5 hours from his home to the track and back , hats off to him . Dirty Nige's time in the other lane .

Dirty Nige

Dirty Nige ran a PB of 11.30 , running against Paul in the turbo bus
