Mine was a 12.00 @ 114 holding on to 1st and second too long. I think Andy ran a 9 something but I left early to find out.

Ive estimated if instead of a 100 shot i used a 600 shot I might have stood a chance. :pmsl:
Great weekend and an excellent finish. Cheers Andy. See you all at Shakey this Saturday.
I will be trouncing other TVRs hopefully.

I have a very similar piece of video taken from on board my Anglia which ran a 14.1, Steve Green was in the other lane in his old Cortina, ran an 8 something.

Love the way Andy starts to smoke the tyres at half track and has to pedal it again. Terrific weekend and well done for getting the TVR into the 11s Derek!

I actually managed a slight PB to 60 foot!
If i ran 1.83 at Kirkbride then surely i must lose another tenth at Shakey this weekend. Just need to address a leaky fuel pulsoid (or 2).

Brill - two things that just summed up what I've missed by not getting to the track this year - getting the best view in the house of Andy and the - "surely I must lose another tenth"...

no three things: getting the best view in the hours of Andy - "surely I must lose another tenth" and my personal favourite - "I think I need a bigger nitrous jet next time".

the comparisons with Twister are fun aren't they - "a 600 shot to keep up"!?! - I worked out I needed to put another 150 shot in the Minor to have enough power to turn Andy's blower!

You've really got me dreaming of racing next year....

Thanks!

You are more than welcome.
I may jest about catching Andy but i do have may aims and goals.
The fastest street legal TVR i know of is Paul Chances LS3 pwered Cerbera. Running kinsler throttle bodies etc is putting over 530 bhp to the rear wheels and has snapped a few driveshafts and run 10.9 @ 132.
A part of me thinks i can achieve this. It would be a shame to lose the faith.
