Andy Forrest gets 10.20 quarter mile time!

Yes, a new record has been set at Crail. Andy F has taken his 2.33 Impreza Type R closer to the realms that would only normally be seen in Hollywood's unrealistic car movies.

Running with a worsening misfire, he managed to cross the line at 136.8mph in just 10.20 seconds from a standing start.

Here's hoping for a UK 9 second quarter soon.

He got a 10.13 the other day!

There was not too much changed since it was featured in Scooby Magazine (issue 1).

There have been a few more mods since the 10.13 time though, in preparation for Ten of The Best 4 at Elvington in one week.
