So, event 1

is anyone going to the NT Drag racing Nationals on Friday and Saturday night?

Nice pix, looks like you had a successfull meet. Good to see rotaries alive & kicking in the top end.

5p3nc3, glad your car got there unscathed.

Where are you from kev? I will try anything to get a decent crew going up here. I may even try some mps as well and get some combined events happening.

Yeah, I think I may write a small spiel on the cards. Its all about wording. The RX7s don't get our often but I will hit them up when I see them.
