We're back ('bout bloody time). Bodangora Drags is held several times a year at the Wellington, N.S.W, regional airstrip. It's eighth mile but that's ok, it's easier on the gear. I was using it as a test and tune before the Nostalgias in Queensland next weekend. A leisurely 4 hour drive over one of the shittiest bits of road we call a major highway to get there and sleep in the car in the middle of a lucerne paddock, I gotta have rocks in my head. Mind you, it was beautiful and peaceful out there. The next day it was time to go racing. Mostly late model, sedan based stuff once again but I'll race anyone. After a couple of less than spectacular qualifying runs which involved missing 2nd gear on both of them, I managed a lazy 8.90 on the third. Then, onto the racing. For some bizarre reason I was put in the fastest bracket. Whether it was to just even out the numbers or what, there were some weird looks from some of the other racers. Tough shit I say. I'm here to race. That was a breakout for me but I took the win with the other bloke red lighting. I took the win with a backing off 8.96 on the 8.90 dial. The other bloke broke out. That was a win. 8.98 backing off again. Now because of the rules and I was the only one with 3 wins, I took the winners trophy home. To say I was stoked would be an understatement. I only went to test the new engine, which ran beautifully I might add, but consistency won the day. I'll add this short video of one of the coolest racers. A Leyland Mini with a 302 Ford V8. Very neatly done and no slouch either. Hooroo and off to Queensland next week. (just a short 10 hour drive to get there.
