ROUND 1 15/5/05
TOP FUEL MOPED KNOCKOUT
ADELAIDE INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY.
This was the perfect late Autumn day! 21C, dry, sunny with a slight breeze.
If you could pay for the ideal day, this is what you would have bought.
Hopefully in the coming rounds we get a few more like today!
We were hoping for a field of 6 Skoots but ended up with only 2.
That's all it takes to race so we both geared up and passed scruitineering.
The look on the scriutineers faces was worth a Million Bucks!
"Mopeds with NITROUS OXIDE!!!"
(I hear that the commentry as we raced was just as suprised.)
Angelo's little 100cc Aerox ran a best of 19.8 @ 59MPH.
That's totally hard for it's class and his 60 foot times were very close to mine!!
He improved over the day and had a smile from ear to ear.
I managed a best of 15.41 @ 80.46mph on the Dragster which running naturally
aspirated I was very happy with considering I'm a 90kg lump! (The NOS System
was not sorted and running way too lean!!!!! Sure as hell looked good
sitting on the side of the Skoot though!)
We have a busy month sorting for the next meet.
More mods, tuning and some repairs. Hehe....
Hopefully next time we get a few more numbers which will help to establish
that Scooter Drag Racing is here!
Many thanks to Angelo and crew, and the staff at AIR for a good day.
PS - Did anyone get a pic of that stonkin' burnout I pumped?
