This four day drag racing extravaganza began under bright skies on Friday. There were a
few breaks in the action due to rain on Saturday and Sunday, but by Bank Holiday Monday
the rains came, bringing about a premature end to a great season opener. However, plenty
of racing took place on the first 3 days, with only Monday being a complete washout. Over
the next few pages we’ll try to bring you a flavour of the on-track action that did take
place...

Super Pro ET qualifying got underway on Friday morning under bright
skies, although there was a distinct chill in the air. Here, Ian Powell in
the near lane squares off against Steve Johnson’s Motor Mouse drag-
ster. Super Pro managed to get one round of eliminations completed on
Sunday evening, during which Ian Powell red lit and Steve Johnson
progressed to a round two that never happened.
Also in the first round of Super Pro eliminations, Martyn Jones made a
6.26 second 206.9 mph pass! A stellar run indeed!
