Project R - December 2017 - Katukurunda Drags

one of the greatest joys of having a car that actually runs and doesn't sit in the garage more often than it does at home, is that i can actually leather it now and then. this is one thing i am eternally grateful to PAS and Sabry for: for coming through with what they promised and building a car to last. it was on his insistence that i entered the drags. 

i stood no chance fromm the get go. i was in the 1800cc-2500cc NA class, and i was up against 5 other competitors who brought drag prepped monsters carried there on trailers. while i drove my daily whip to the track, raced, and drove back. but with a qualifying time in the 15s range, with the winner running 12s, i'm quite pleased! 

i was loaned a pair of semi slicks for the race. this is why i love this community. the love, people. the love!

our resident rice police @VVTi and @Bugatti both took part in the one make BMW event, and i was sharing their tent space, feeling much like the Geisha to a platoon of SS soldiers...

^^this, by far, is my favourite shot. this is going on a wall somewhere. Built. Driven. Inspired.

here's the two time trials:

 

 

 

and here's the qualifier. i was booted out after this. but hey, i'll be back! 

 

 

this was easily the most fun day of my entire life. to actually have a car that could run a race, and then go home in, to me, was the real victory. and while i sat there, on the start line, with the throttle blipping on launch control, i realized i didn't even have to run the race. i'd already won. the result was immaterial! 

IMG_6024.jpg.304ff5007269c392ce61a94329575025.jpg<-- this was how the other 5 cars went home. mine is still proudly daily driven. all i did was remove the stickers.
