ROCK DRAGWAY RESULTS:
Saturday saw a few entrants and spectators turn up. Unfortunately the weather was against us and qualifying was cancelled for the day before lunchtime. Frequent, annoying light showers made the track too slippery to continue. Before then the street classes ran as did the comp bikes with the odd comp car making a ran as well.

Dean Van Ingen made some passes aboard his street bike, punching out an all time best of 11.0 seconds at 129 mph. Dean feels confident that with a few minor changes he will be in the 10 second zone which is an excellent benchmark for a quick street bike.

Sunday was a lot better weather wise, although strong head and cross winds slowed times down. the turn out was well down as people couldn't make it back or had enough on Saturday.
Street classes got a qualifying run then straight into eliminations. Street Bikes got a few qualifying runs due to the small field. Comp cars got to do their qualifying runs.

Maxine Van Ingen was the only woman competitior on the day but that didn't stop her from kicking the boy's butts by taking out the Super Street (C10) Bracket with a 14.56 at 100.00 mph. Well done!

The event was disrupted by two crashes. John Gourdie was the first casualty. Only the second meeting for his brand new altered (pictured on trailer). Towards the end of a run, a slick made contact with the grass which turned the car at speed before it bit the track and barrel road heavy. Possibly about 10 times!
John was alright but the car was in a bad state.

The second was the Falcon CC/TS car pictured below which rolled several times at mid track with the car finishing up on its roof. The driver was able to exit pretty smartly and raised his hand to the crowd. The car appeared to be a right off. 
Fortunately the stringent safety rules and regulations which govern the sport of Drag Racing ensured no significant injuries resulted from these accidents.
