it is an event where you take your car down a quater mile drag strip for as many times as you like it costs £15.00 for unlimited runs and you get a print out of your times at the end of your run


it is a good day out m8 normally have a few people from sidc going.

Yes, i'm interested - maybe in spectating rather than riding but certainly interested. Where about in the country is it? Maybe a good day out in the summer or something? Have you done it before? :shock:

People online and offline all day! last night there were 13 people on line at the same time.... Started to worry that the server this site is hosted on was going to fall over

Most ever people online is sen at the bottom of the forum front page.

I will definatly make that day at some point in the future - sounds really shit hot.

Like to see some scoobs slamming it - bet that chews the tyres though :shock:

i think your clutch suffers more then the tyres trying to hold about 4000rpm is quite a strain especially if you are running your car all day

Yea I may well be up for this - it is quite a run up to the Pod tho from down ere

I went to Ten of the Best 2 last year way up at Elvington and that was a good day out - it was absolutely roasting though.

Like Gareth I wouldn't be running me Scoob up the strip but would be more than up for spectating
