An apocalyptic heatwave killed any hope of decent testing ahead of this weekend's Santo's Summer Thunder event, though several teams tried.
Only a handful of professional racers braved the heat in hope of accruing some important data ahead of race day, with the final test day actually cancelled because of the conditions.
Paul Mouhayet was the only racer to see the stripe under any power with a 5.88 in the Moits Racing Pro Slammer.
John Zahra must still license his awesome Top Fuel Motorcycle, which he has a final chance to do in Friday's shakedown sessions. But his short times are nothing short of world class.
