Drachten NL, 7. - 8. July 2001

Both Dragsters by the sprintrace in the final !

At the last weekend take place a Dragrace under best weather condition in Drachten (NL). The track is a little bit to short for Pro Mod and Competition . They only drive 1/8 mile, a sprintrace .

Mac Maniac
The 1/8 mile is also the distance for the Junior Dragsters . ( 1/8 mile = 201.17 meter )
Yvonne was very happy , then this is the first race in this season where she`s on the start with her Mac Maniac dragster. At Saturday she had 4 qualifikationruns . We used them for adjust the clutch and the new rebuild 17 HP Briggs engine . Just in her first run she had a new personel besttime. 10.529 sec. 60.43 mile. All runs was between 2 tenth of a sec.

The Junior Dragsters have here own rules . For the qualifikation is only the reactiontime authoritative . The best reactiontime is top quali.
Before the elimination the young drivers choose their own index time . In the elimination they have a handicap start between the different from their index time . The first on the finish line take the win . If they drive faster than their own index time they have loose the race .

It is admirable how the youngsters react at the "Tree". They have better reactiontimes than some experienceds drivers .

Yvonne has make 7 runs this weekend and the reactiontime was always between 0.288 and 0.073sec.!
By means of the computerdates ( exhaust gas temp. and RPM )succeed the tuning from the Mac Maniac dragster perfect .

For her good work Yvonne get the runner up in Junior Dragster !!

Golden "Vette"
An exciting final in competition . Bruno against Marco Maurischat !

With a Pro Tree start the both cars leave with good reactiontimes from the line .

A deserving victory for the team Maurischat !
