The first meeting of the 2017 Havoc AA/FA U.S. Tour saw us at the hallowed ground of Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, California for the 59th annual March Meet. We had hoped to pass tech, make the car run and not make complete fools of ourselves in the process. It got a whole lot better than that.
After a run into the cold, dark night (just like home!) on the first qualifier, we were lying in 3rd place in a field of 20. Surely that would change?
After the second and final qualifier, a 6.34 pass at a NPB speed of 234mph, the little green car from England lay in 4th place and ‘in the show’!
Round 1, up against the more modern styled ‘Witch Doctor’ altered – a 5.50 car. Unfortunately, that’s as far as our weekend went, when a fuel leak covered the driver’s visor and vision was all but lost around mid-track. A little disappointing but, on reflection, a tremendous weekend!
Roll on June, when the Team will be back in the U.S. at Bowling Green in Kentucky. Come and support us there!
