    My trip to RWYB @ Santa Pod today 16/08/08

    Took a little trip up to Santa Pod this afternoon for a bit of 1/4 mile action and wasn't disappionted

    Got there at about 12.30pm and the place was packed, the wait for the strip was pretty long and there were some mean looking rides in the que...... let the fun begin!!

    Had a look around at the motors parked up before we went into the grandstand and VXRonline had a small meet there.











    Had a chat with a few of the members and they all seemed to be a good bunch of guys, with some lovely Vauxhalls. Most of the members there done the 1/4 mile aswell which was good to see. The best time they had was from a VXR8 (black) which run 13.2secs..... very very impressive!!







    Saw an astra mk4 silver with some AOC stickers in the rear windows, didn't get a chance for a chat as he was on the 1/4 mile loads



    There were some proper rapid cars there today, best time we saw was from this crazy mk1 escort below which run a time of 9.8secs OMG

    Here's some more pics for you guys......







    Great day at the pod as always, it was just a shame I didn't run mine as the turbo is a little bit poorly at the moment, oh well theres always next time
