Drag Racing 2012 - Top Fuel Funny Cars on Sunday - NitrOlympX Hockenheim
"Flash Gordon" Smith and Jason Phelps also made their appearance on Sunday.
After their first run the team needed just about 90 minutes to
maintaninance both cars and bring 'em into the line-up. I just packed all
four runs in this one video
Due to the cancelling of all FIA classes except Top Methanol Dragsters they
have been the only Nitro cars on track on Sunday.
Gordie Smith took a more conservative approach going down the strip on
throttlestop in his first ru...pass. His second one - respectively its end
- somehow fitted in the overall picture of the whole event. However the
Funny Car just ditched the left hand wall after Gordie obviously recognised
some technical problems....whereas this whole weekend felt like going into
the wall head-on and flatout!
Rookie Jason Phelps really tested both lanes, but also after three days of
racing the "Rico Anthes Quartermile" was far off being able to cope with
the power of a Nitro car this year.
Let's just hope that some lessons have been learned and something like this
WILL NEVER EVER repeat in European Drag Racing...
