The 2011 Drachten Finals were spoilt by bad weather. Due to the rain over the weekend we could only make 2 passes. Frank installed a new Hurst Quarter Stick with a solenoid shifter kit. It worked fine but due to the track conditions the tires broke loose and we could not come close to our 9.90 index. The dark clouds in the back brought more rain.
Some video’s from the Dutch Drachten Internationals, July 2011. Due to rain there were no elimination runs on Sunday.
