Last weekend the car set a new national record in my drag
racing class here in Iceland!
The category I compete in is termed MC (Muscle Car) and the record is
12.18 @ 112.41 mph. My 60 ft. was 1.919.
The record was set at a track with a relatively coarse surface, and on this
race day track operators did not apply any track bite to the surface.
There are some restrictions to tuning cars for this category. The biggest
ones being no head porting, 2 1/2" exhaust max., no lightening of vehicle,
no slicks and only DOT tires with horizontal thead and max. 10" converter.
Car has to have full stock body and full interior.
I am currently in the points lead for the Icelandic Championship in the
Muscle Car Class after two of five races.
I will do my best to go for high elevens, but only at the last meet
because I do not wanna be forced to put a roll cage into my ride.
Some guys at the track were amazed to see how this heavy beast ate up the
