HI form England

Just a quick note to say hello, you have a huge site here that I have never come across before, and hope to put it to good use in the future.
A little bit about my current car :- 92 Camaro full tube race car 555cu in BBC which had a glide behind but I'm currently upgrading to a 5 speed liberty with all the usual clutch and can stuff, oh and an extra pedal to use!! , the car has gone a best of 8.04 @ 173mph at Santa Pod Raceway in England and I'm trying (hoping) to be in the 7's some time this year.
My day job is as parts manager for a race car shop in the UK my weekend job and any time that is left is as Chief starter for Santa Pod Raceway

Second that welcome aboard from one of the X colonies, mate. Nice to work where you do if you break something, eh? Let us know if you do get into the 7's... that's a challenge!

Re: HI form England

The car unfortunetly isn't street legal, my wife and I race in a class called Super Modified which has strict weight, engine size, valve size and other restrictions in order to keep the cost's down, but as you know with any heads up class that is very difficult, to answer CfunK's question I'm live in Northampton which is about 60 miles north of London and about 3 miles from the race track (Santa Pod). I'm nor sure if you can post photo's but if you can I will add one of the car at some point
