Another great day out in the Z with good company thrown in. I won't go into details of the results as I'm sure Mike will be along with them. I did set a new PB though with a 11.56@126mph. Poor 60ft though as I couldn't brake the 2second barrier all day and most runs were around 2.1s. Several 11.7s though so it was fairly consistent.

Tell em about your 12.7 then Wyn. That's nearly half a second quicker than your previous best.

Round 1 Drag Challenge 2013

Four cars attended the inaugural meeting for the 2013 season, so the bracket racing was a bit curtailed.
After a morning's practice cut short by a Ford Pop shedding rods and oil at the top end, we had a one shot qualifier around midday. I confused everyone by selecting a Sportsman Tree (we've always had Pro Tree before), so qualifying saw three red lights! Ignoring that faux pas, qualifying order was:

1. John Palmer 11.654 at 127.97 mph (Z01 240Z 1JZE TT)
2. Wyn Freeman 12.755 at 111.21 mph (new personal best) (260Z RB25DET)
3. Paul Hopkinson 13.396 at 101.03 mph (300ZX Z32 TT)
4. Richard Trussell (new member and competitor with more or less stock 350Z) 14.417 at 99.55 mph. Richard was the only person not to red light during qualifying and pulled a more than respectable reaction time of 0.117 seconds!

Round 1 (semi-final really) saw John line up against newcomer Richard with nearly 3 seconds between their dial-ins (11.56 vs14.50). Unfortunately Richard's clutch pedal decided that this would be a good time to stay on the floor, spinning up the clutch and the car limping to a 32 second quarter mile at 29 mph! John progressed to the final.
Paul and Wyn paired up with rather less of a difference between them (13.20 vs 12.50). Wyn launched well and beat Paul's reaction time, but was unable to reach his earlier personal best time, fading to a 13.276 at 106.69. Paul was close to his dial-in with 13.391 at 105.06. Paul progressed to the final.

Round 2 (Final): Paul met John - after a great reaction time in the first round, John was testing the Sportsman Tree to the limits. Unfortunately this resulted in a BIG red light, handing the win to Paul on a plate. However, John took the opportunity to run a personal best time of 11.57 at 126.55 mph. Paul's win was with a 13.723 at 106.58.



Points awarded for Bracket Race:
Paul 10
John 5
Wyn 3
Richard 3

2 points for attendance to all, including me (with 350Z) and Dean Bottriell (without Z).

Class points as follows:
Class 5: Paul 1 point (near PB with 13.1816 / 110.40 straight out of the box in the morning)
Class 6: Richard 1 point
Class 7: John 2 points (also PB 11.56 at 126.55), Wyn 1 point

Championship after one round:
1. Paul Hopkinson 13
2. John Palmer 9
3= Wyn Freeman 6
3= Richard Trussell 6
5= Mike Feeney 2
5= Dean Bottriell 2

Additional support provided by Katrina and Jessica Freeman who also helped with the videos and pictures.

Best reaction times as follows (no points for this at Bracket Race):
Richard 0.117
John 0.122
Paul 0.408
Wyn 0.555

Sorry to hear you wont be there Rob. Myself, I cant wait to try out the new cams. Not heard much from Wyn lately. New turbo fitted? Should I be rushing round to get my ECU working? I may even pop to the pod on Saturday as well as I don't think I can wait 'till Sunday!
