Yes, you poor buggers, I'm back, again. I'm getting sore finger tips from all this typing. I promise there will be no more till late October. The trip to Sydney brought up the 2500 kilometres for 3 race meetings in 3 weekends. This mightn't sound like much, but in a place such as Australia with crappy roads it can be a slog. Only 3 HAMBsters entered again, with a newby, Kim, taking over the driving duties in Gerard's car. She picked up runner up last weekend at the Day of the Drags which was her first outing. Ezio was there and I made up the 3. Temperatures were predicted to be in the high 30s (high 80sF) but managed to hit 36C (96F) with humidity around 40%. First run for me was a 13.709 which I was pretty happy with. I remarked to my Crew Chief that I was only .009 off a 13.6 but that was unlikely. Second run humidity had dropped to 24% and I did a 13.594 @ 95.73 M.P.H. That's my best time ever! I was that happy I could've went home then. Third run I backed it up with another 13.594 @ 95.72 M.P.H. What was going on here? Make sure you watch the tacho. It tells the story, too much horsepower!
