Easter Thunderball – 2nd – 5th April 2010

The first main race event of 2010 got off to a damp start with Friday being a total washout with only a handful of cars making it down the track and no demonstration vehicles making an appearance.

Saturday, although overcast and chilly, was a relatively dry day with racing from 9am – 6.30pm. Our first run was scheduled for 2.30pm and eventually hit the track at 3pm. The car ran 5.90 @ 269mph, which wasn’t bad for the first run considering the track and weather conditions weren’t ideal. Our second run scheduled for 6.15pm was cancelled due to the onset of rain. Roll on Sunday!!

Sunday, started late due to the overnight rain with racing starting at 11.30am. With only one run scheduled for the day, we ran at 6pm with an impressive 5.85 @ 274mph. Crew and driver happy!!

The last day, again, was only scheduled for one run at 3.30pm but was delayed until 4.45pm due to various incidents on the track. However, was very pleased to run 5.93 @ 269mph with a strong headwind.

All in all, a successful weekend for the FireForce crew with the car maintaining it’s record of 5sec runs all year so far.
Sales of the NEW FireForce 3 poster went extremely well with many new young fans going away with a signed momento of
the weekend.

Looking forward to the Gti Spring Festival on Sunday 11th April and to another 5sec run…hopefully!
