liam "the reverand" maltby.... :smoke:

had the best hotrod drags yet!
great people,food,lots of beer, racing everything was good.
we ran a 10.75 and had no damage which is long over due but we stuck at it and got back on track,.
really good to see so many people having a good time.

big thanks to all involved..

absolutley superb!!! :tup:

Yes Liam,brilliant weekend......................

1/ Alan Martin,and the rest of the organisers,should be very proud, 21 years and gets
better every year,and they get unbeleavable weather
2/ So many cool new cars or ones i had'nt seen before,the place was packed !

3/ Avon Park bar is world class,but only because of its clientell,and Gina should have
trumpet shoved up his arse !
4/ Very pleased for Liam,the "fire up"proceedure was the most frantic 5 minutes ive had
at a dragstrip-well done boys
5/ A small apology to Cliff Griffin,who i spoke of in less than kind terms for not pulling up
straight away to minimise the oildown-having seen the damage,i can olny imagine how
scary it must have been in that car,indeed it was pointed out to me if it had been LHD
he might not be with us now.
6/The twin engined rail was beutiful,i would love to paint that car-but im sure looking
at the thing so far there is a comprehensive plan to finish it off,to probably be one of
the best FED in the world.
7/ Si,Roadrunner -Thanks again ,for this site,(and the Henry Hirise stuff) we should be
gratefull we have this place,and given its only been going a few months and
listening to some of the exiting idea's for the future i cant wait to see what this
place will look like in a couple of years time -Lets all support him as much as we can.

Bang on with the Reverand Jim thing Sid!!

We also had the best meeting ever. After all the stress and turning up at the track with the motor in bits really had our had set on a 10 and the hard work paid off with a 10.51, taking a second off our PB.

Definately enjoyed our first meeting out as part of The Oddlot, cheers for the entertainment on saturday nite guys, (it reminds me of how a certain nostalgia racing class used to be a few years back!!)

I would like to thank Sid and Bryan for help with Dales Beetle, and some wings for me pop, Liam for allowing me to help with his car, although he actually did what I was supposed to do himself...:eek:

Plus, a big thanks to the Oddlot lot for letting Dale be a 'member' for the weekend, I think he was rather chuffed...!!!


Must have been the best HRD's for years for me...:tup:

Can we do it again this weekend???
