There is a wind labelled Lucky Bastard which is currently traversing the drag racing fraternity. If you missed the speed-generating combustion which occurred in April at Vernamfield Motorsports Park, when Pedal and Metal were wrapped in an elapsed time orgy, grab that wind! I am transporting tidings of great joy!
On Sunday May 28, fans of a sport which assembles motorized horses and hurl them at an immobile line 1320 feet from a standstill start, will invade Clarendon’s most prominent spot for coordinated speed – Vernamfield! So, Lucky Bastard will serve the interests of those who were unavoidably absent from the last duel between air, fuel and speed.
NDRC’s events are known for registering more than 100 chariots of speed and on May 28, nothing less is expected. And if the words being distributed at random on the streets are factual, a grand event will be unleashed on the pampered fans who comprise the NDRC’s loyal drag racing family.
At Full Throttle 1, as advertised, Pedal was in constant conflict with Metal and the elapsed times recorded were as scorching hot as Clarendon’s climate change-affected midday sun! Do you remember when a 10 second machine was drag racing’s Holy Grail? Well, ladies and gentlemen, 9 seconds is now the new 10 seconds. If you are not ripping a 9 second pass – ‘nutten na gwaaan fi you! Lol.
Truth be told though, 100+ machines will be coloring the Vernamfield skyline with multifarious shades of speed, shades so overpowering in their dominance, they would emasculate a rainbow!
Will you be there? You must be there! Full Throttle 2 Redemption! Vernamfield – May 28!
