    Now that is a new one on me.

    They keep the car still and move the people.

    That March guy thinks of everything.

    Not bad Gaz, the Audi is the best shot there. Panning a high speed vehicle is difficult. I might put some of my shots up here later.

    Usually is, same posh bird ( I'd not say no ) but nothing like being there.

    Every FUNster needs to visit once.

    We've not done the revival yet !

    The really awesome thing is March, the lucky bast**d owns all that. But he shares it with us :thumb:

    The incredible Duggie Lampkin.

    Being Yorkshire he does not understand gravity so totally ignores it.

    He's got balls like a highland bull too.

    No Brian, not Dougie although he was there and yes he does have very big cojonas. This was some sixteen year old from Yankieville or somewhere equally god forsaken, he can ride a MTX bike though!

    Well **** me. Looked pure Duggie. 16 YO. I'm seeing this all the time in Moto3. They don't understand impossible, fear, danger, hurt, second.

    Long may it continue.

    It was awesome wasn't it? The drag cars were incredible, the stats on "Spirit of Adventure" are mind boggling:

    Supercharged Hemi V8 burning nitromethane and capable of 8000BHP! Supercharger takes 1500BHP to turn it at full chat! Standing start to 100MPH in just 0.7 sec! fuel pump deliver 1.3 gallons per second flat out! 18 gallon fuel tank will supply the motor for just two minutes........................at tickover!!! Standing quarter mile in 3.5 ish seconds with terminal velocity around 350MPH!!!!!!

    They only ran a max of one eighth of full throttle at Goodwood cos none of the straight bits were long enough for a full throttle run!

    Fuel costs 30 USD per gallon and it does about 60-70 gallons per mile, puts yer average motorhome into perspective doesn't it?


    The drag cars were the only thing in my lifetime that have caused me true physical pain through sound alone!

    It's not all sunk in yet, mindblowing. Too much going on to take it all in, keep remember things.
    I agree with others, this is something that needs to be done.
