12-06-16 WPMC Drag Racing: Part 1

Saturday morning at Killarney brought with it the promise of great racing with at least 5 cars there capable of running sub 10s passes. Unfortunately the day brought with it numerous breakages which sidelined a number of the big guns, including Tolla Daniels, Michael Kayser & Herman with his Rover-Tec bakkie. Undoubtedly the center of attention though was the matt black Chev Firenza of Ralph Kumbier with the twin turbos of the V8 powerplant poking out the bonnet. Unfortunately Ralph was sidelined with an injury so we didn’t see the full potential of the monster as Kevin of Executive Towing struggled to put the power down on his 1st run and when he just seemed to start to get the hang of it the Firenza was sidelined with a minor oil leak. I hope all those that suffered breakages on Saturday manage to get things sorted for the next event on the 14th of July and I hope those potential spectators that browse my website are inspired to come down to the track to take in the sights and sounds that is drag racing at Killarney 😉 Till next time, Robert
