After both building new engines for our cars in the last 12 months, and much smack talk (mainly from me), it was time for the BS to stop and the racing to start. The venue was the Kwinana Motorplex in Perth, Western Australia at the once-a-year Retro Drag Day. Great event where we managed to get four qualifying passes in before eliminations. This was both our second run for the day but the first time we had lined up against each other.
