Sunday started out sunny and dry with a brisk wind, to say the least. This did not seem to put off the spectators with a larger than expected crowd. With a packed out site, this made FireForce’s journey to the startline a bit more difficult.
With two scheduled runs due to the amount of people, our first run was at 1pm. The car ran 5.84 @ 279.94mph to an enthusiastic and appreciative full grandstand!!
After getting back to the pits and checking over the timing figures, the decision was made to try up the performance for the second run, providing the weather conditions didn’t change.
The second run was at 4.20pm and as we hoped, the car ran quicker at 5.7@ 283mph, much to the delight of the crew and the crowds!
Next event, Central Ford RS Owners Day on Sun 18th April.
Hopefully over the next few months, we have plans to improve the car’s already outstanding and consistent performance. Keep checking back for regular event reports and updates.
