  1. Mid July and we are at Santa Pod, which for us has becoming the biggest event of the season. With Steve back in the hot seat and looking for the same numbers we are back with the Mondrian scheme. With the track being open from Friday lunchtime until late evening, it’s a good opportunity to get some extra runs in. 3 runs over the next few hours saw a consistency of mid 9’s @143mph followed by a final run at 7.30pm 10.97 at which point we called it a day. Saturday morning and we’re ready to go, 1st run produced a 9.18 @149.14mph (so close to the 150). 2nd run 9.17 @151.06mph backed up by a 3rd run of 9.18 @152.07mph. To say we were over the moon is an understatement. Mr Field had reached his own personnel achievement running an 8 and at 150mph albeit not both on the same run. Some fantastic numbers run, great atmosphere and brilliant friends, what more can you ask for?

  2. A week later and we’re at Santa Pod for the Summer Nationals.

    With the car sporting its Purple Livery, Sarah is in the hot seat.

    Friday was a peak performance day and with 4 runs achieved all in the low 9’s and high 140’s it looked as though Saturday would be a good day.

    1st run of the day and a dial in of 9.31 we’re hoping for a good run. Sarah didn’t disappoint with a 9.15 @148mph this is looking like a good meet. 2nd run saw the dial in being lowered to 9.10, unfortunately? She ran an 8.99 @149.57, looks like this is shaping up to be a good meet. With the decision to alter the dial in again to 8.98, we’re back out for the 3rd run. With a good strong burn out and she’s off, with an unbelievable 8.93 @152.08mph way to go Sarah. Steve’s dream has become a reality, into the 8’s@150+mph, on a single carb, supermarket petrol and iron block. Did we celebrate? You bet we did. Race day Sunday and the heavens had opened overnight, a very wet day resulted in the 1st run not being until 5.30pm, with a dial in of 8.99 and a run of 9.24 saw Sarah finishing in 4th place. A spot prize for Best Appearing Car and new PB’s of dipping into the 8’s and 150mph (Congratulations Sarah), all up a brilliant weekend.
