What’s even more amazing is that the record pass was just their third full pass with a new engine combination. Andy recalls the moment:

“After a seven month sabbatical to fit a new engine block, turbos, wastegates and BOV, the team arrived at Santa Pod ready for action. Unusually the weather co-operated for 3 days allowing the team to get a couple of hits on the new combo.”

“Our first test hit was a 250 ft launch that netted a 1.08 60 ft with an easy second gear launch. Everything seemed to working very well, so we made a full pass to check everything out in the full 1/4 mile. An easy 2nd gear launch 6.63 @ 212mph was the result, and the data was very good again.”

“On Sunday we were scheduled 2 qualifiers. 1st gear was on the agenda for these 2 runs, which netted an off-the-throttle 6.64, but this time at 226mph – our best mph to date! The final qualifier was a 6.50 @ 226.91mph. We’d bested our world record time again!”

“The great thing is our Turbosmart wastegates and BOV worked flawlessly, and thanks Marty Staggs at Turbosmart USA for letting us use their fantastic product!”
