    Default A Day at Santa Pod

    Well I went to my first ever Vec-C meeting yesterday to the Flame and Thunder event at the Pod. Meet up with ukanalyst (Dave) and Mrs Dave before we went to the Pod for a little "compare" of our facelift V6 3.0 CDTi's .......Well we tried each others cars, for scientific purposes , and agreed that both seem to have identical performance,as you would expect but Dave had a hunch his may have been modified....but yes, they really are that quick!
    At the Pod, what a fantasic day with loads going on, only marred near the end by one of the jet cars going into a ball of flame , covered already by spoons here.
    We spent most of the day trying to catch up with the rest of the Vec-C crew, found them eventually and had a good chat with Steve (spoons) about his pioneering brakes venture (his next mod I think ). Sorry I didnt have chance to catch up with any more members as I had to go, but maybe next time...
    Dave took literery hundreds of pictures on his new camera so looking forward to seeing some of those, and he's got some crackers!! Anyway was great to meet, and spend the day with, Dave and Mrs Dave, top couple! Had a fantastic time!

    Nutron... Dunno, he was getting wheelspin, so appeared to have trouble getting the power down, but this was his time on one of the runs....

    Nutron is on the left....... 89.45 miles per hour in 16.05 seconds
