This weekend past was TDRA's Gunnedah drags. As those of you who regularly grind your way through my race reports this is a laid back, ego free weekend. Saturday is test 'n' tune, Sunday morning qualifying and after lunch is eliminations. The weather was superb , sunny with hardly a breath of wind. I jump in the driver's seat, hit the starter and.............nothing happened but a hissing sound and flashing idiot lights. Hook up the jump pack and..........still nothing happens. Expletives by the dozen and still nothing. I do the Zen type thing and take a deep breath and engage the brain. After disconnecting the starter motor and then pull the dash panel out to check for wiring issues I put the jump pack straight on the starter and it fired. Long story short, the isolation switch had shit it's self. I could've bridged it and went racing but as it's the emergency engine shutoff and there was an ANDRA official onsite I ducked into town and bought a new one. All up I got 5 runs in on Saturday. 8.756, 8.973, 8.757, 8.745, 8.801. Pretty consistent but not without issues. For some reason I had to readjust the play in the throttle cable after each run as it would be slack when I got back to the pits. I guess I was just mashing it too hard. On 2 runs the pedal got stuck under the pedal stop. Flat change into second and switch off after the finish line.
