View Full Version : MG Drag Racing Club day out

15-06-2007, 09:16 PM
We are holding our annual day out at Santapod on the 7th July 2007 at the Retro show.
Any MG's are welcome to come along. Several of us will be racing. I will be going for another best time before I retire this engine and transmission to install a bigger engine and a stronger transmission. I'm not wasting the old stuff. Its going into a rear wheel drive V8 powered Ford Fiesta conversion for 2008.
300 hp in a Fiesta should be fun eh?

Hope you have a good run Perry. If I'm around I'll try and pop down for a look.

I wonder if the Roller will be there again this year !!! Shame that Retro Cars won't be there after they shut down.
What about that rocket powered monster? Scared the daylights out of half the crowd!!!

I couldnt get mine on the rollers last year. way too low to get up the ramp.

You did mean the rolling road didnt you Bev?
Or did I miss a Rolls Royce last year?

Practical performance car magazine had an old Rolls Royce last year that they took to a number of events including Le Mans and Retro cars at 'Pod.

I missed that one.
Would be good to say hello again Tony if you are around. Look for the fat grey haired bloke standing next to a Black MGB as usual.

And if I get my diff locker sorted, look for the Black MGB in the burnout area with both rears smoking like mad. I have now progressed to doing proper tyre warm up's before a race.

Unfortunately, the last few attempts have only seem plumes of white smoke from the drivers side rear. That was a good clue to the diff locker not working.
