Well said Pete and Michael.

Did anyone notice that there appears to be no Australian Nationals mentioned for the new schedule? Whilst the event somewhat lost its appeal after it left Calder, it is still a prestigious race and one that surely holds great importance to the racer still. To get rid of a traditional event is basically saying that ANDRA don't give two stuffs about the sport. The sport is dead in the arse from a organisational point of view. I feel sorry for the racers who have stepped up with the times and become extremely professional only to have an organisation that is still behind the times and where the race tracks still dictate what happens and what format is run. How is the sport to grow when ego's and idiots are in charge? Those out there that think this sport is doing okay are living in a dreamland and probably have their noses up someones arse.

You have to remember Paul, some of the Perth commentators like to exaggerate a bit and forget the facts at times.

Jay is currently getting his bike ready to race, and will hopefully be racing at the first round of the championship in Perth.

Went to Santa Pod a number of times back when I was living in England in the mid 00's. The only bad experience I had there was when it rained. Definitely one of my favourite places to watch drag racing. The vibe there is brilliant, I would definitely suggest going. It isn't far to travel from London either if that is where you're going to be based in your time there.

You'll have a blast.

Mike.

A very impressive run, and the .43 was impressive too. Some excellent racing this weekend in Tierp.

Torrence already has the Lagana brothers tuning this weekend, with Lee starting at the next race.

Lee was tuning Torrence on Friday. Pretty hard for the Lagana's to be tuning for Torrence when they themselves are racing in Martin Michigan this weekend. default/wink

This is not about prize money only, speaking to one Tf team it wasn't even the issue, unlike the performance criteria and oil down policy that was set down.

Grant,

You'll find that if you speak to the right people, all the other crap about oil down fines etc got taken off the table early in the piece. So if prize money isn't even the issue - why are TF not running the Nitro Champs? None of the other group one classes to my knowledge are kicking up a fuss. And where is ANDRA in all of this? The sport in this country is well and truly becoming a sad joke.

Regards,

Mike.

Ralph,

I haven't had one done (I wish) however I have two friends that do excellent renderings, and would be more than happy to get cost and time details for you. Just reply with a message with what you're looking at getting done, and ill pass on the info and get you a quote.

Regards,

Mike

.Just a quick note I didn't see one disappoint spectator walk out Perth Top Fuel 3 round format meet.

Ian, most fans don't walk out disappointed after watching fuel cars. It had nothing to do with the 3 round format!!

Did her father sell his Alky FC here in the states?

Hey Joe, Steve sold it to Leif Andreasson (Swedish racer) about a year ago.
