Wasn't sure if this was the right place to post this but I'm sure Brogan will relocate it if inapproriate.

Thought I would share some highlights of my day at York Raceway. So, after packing my wife Darleen and the kids, Billy-Bob and Cletus, into the RV we set off to see some Hill Billy racing. The delights included a wheelieing Beetle, a whole variety of American hardware, a very strange Capri and a jet powered dragster which ran the standing quarter in just of 6 seconds, topping out at 215MPH at the end of the strip.

YEE HAW!







Video of jet dragster to follow shortly...

For the briefest of moments, in the first image I though the guy was on the bonnet of the VW ROFL

Looking forward to the vid :thumbsup:

One very silly racing car.


This is pretty much the same sort of machine Richard Hammond nearly did for himself in a few years ago. It is called Split Second and has a Roll Royce Viper engine which produces equivalent to 10,000BHP (which is why I lost it on the video for a few moments!). You will notice how close to the car and track everyone is, Health & Safety seems to have gone missing at Red Neck Racing!

And it still didn't beat White Van Man away from the line ROFL

Thanks AMD - by the way, anyone notice the man with the fire extinguisher standing next to the jet car? Mad-man LOL

Yeah, I had a little chuckle at that.
I was thinking, yes, if it blows that 50L fire extinguisher is going to be really handy...
