It is well overdue for all of NZ's fine Dragbike racers to
have a say no matter what you run. Be it a FIRE DRAGON or a 50cc street legal
Drag moped if you run it down the strip then have your say. There is a form at
the bottom of this page. Got any News to share with others???
It sure makes me feel proud to be a Kiwi
Well Done AT from TA phew that's a bit close!!!!
Just to let you know we get back to NZ on the 30th August in to Auckland at
Neil and Andy are already back in NZ and are settling back in to their work
routines, however I am sure they are suffering withdrawal symptoms already from
Bonneville, and the high temperatures we experienced. ( 110degrees F)
I have attached a couple of preliminary pics you might like, however we only
have dial up where we are in Las Vegas at present, so will send a heap more once
we are back in NZ.
The bike will be about 3 weeks away before it arrives back and I will them have
to start repairing the damage after our 175 mph plus crash.
The damage is mainy confined to the fairings, and screen so I got off pretty
In case you did not get the earlier message...................We will be back
for Bonneville 2008 and I have had my freight sponsor Go Logistics, and also a
couple of others already advise they are keen to support the 2008 effort.
( I think we have done our dash with the high speed crash, so can get back on to
the business of chasing these records..)
We have learn't a lot with loss of traction, and the effect of a density
altitude of around 8000ft and how it affects the performance, so we have a few
ideas to work on over the next year.( See attached Pic of rear wheel after one
run with salt build up!!)
