Quickshift, was the first proper drag event ever to be held here in Northern Ireland, at St Angelo airfeild in Enniskillen..
200 cars from all over Ireland, and some from the UK attending.
Straightliners were operating the timing...

Final came down to 8 cars as per usual, head to head shootout, 6 of which were running in the 11's, and one the 10's ( Fensport Corolla )
3 Skylines, 2 Evos, 2 Subarus, and Fensport

Neil managed some good times with good starts to win his Quarter and Semi, against Skyline, and Subaru resp.

Final came down to Fensports Corolla and BigSinky.

Neil got the launch on him, and was ahead..then Fensport broke 2nd gear lol

What a bummer...I bet Fensport arrived thinking they would kick ass...they arrived on a trailer ( as so many "road" cars do ), sticky tyres, full of race fuel...They took it home on a trailer too lol.
Admittedly, their car is quicker, but that wasnt enough to win it.

Neil drove there as always, normal road tyres, and pump fuel only, and won the trophy, beating off quite a few contenders.
Final run was 11.57 @ 123. Plenty more to come, as it really isnt getting that much boost yet.....

thanks for the comments guys. well pleased with the performance of the car on the day. never missed a beat. times just got faster and faster as i got more used to the new clutch culminating in my 11.57 in the final against the fensport corolla. as stevie says a bit more work and hopefully i can get into low 11s, maybe high 10s(i wish) by the time TOTB comes along.

big sinky (still on cloud 9 at my first win)
