Mössling D, 3. - 5. August 2001

Golden "Vette" collided with the guard rail

The weekend had already begun on Friday badly - unfortunately it rained until on Saturday morning. So the racetrack was closed for qualification till Saturday afternoon. After the ' small ' classes we could make ourselves ready around approx. 21:00 for the first qualification-run. But we could not complete the run however because of darkness.
Sunday morning was it raining again. After drying up the racetrack, approx. 11:00 o'clock, the competition cars went again to the starting line for the first qualifying-run of the weekend. The Golden Vette - team had made all necessary preparations - for running with bad traction.
With little gas Bruno began the Burnout. Nevertheless the tail away-drifted easily to the right, on which he against-steered. A reason for the break out of the car, it is not to be detected actually. Thereupon the Golden "Vette" was no longer guidable and collided with the guard rail. The guard rail gave away one meter and came back. Bruno came on the opposite meadow to a halt.
The left front wheel suspension was broken. Whether it with the cause of accident around a technical defect concerns itself cannot not with security be determined.
We would like to thank the putting personnel for the careful salvage of the dragster, as well as the other teams for their assistance and their sympathy.
