With the drag racing season over and Winter drawing in we’re already hard at work preparing our new BAE521 HEMI engine for next year. After a 500 mile round trip gathering parts we were ready to fit the motor into its new home, and as you can see, it couldn’t fit any better!
Keep an eye out for more updates in the run up to the 2011 season. Roll on Easter!!
“Well the 2010 drag racing season is almost over for another year already. We are pleased with the performance of the car throughout this year and the Chevy engine we have been using, especially after running our personal best at the Summer Nationals! However, the motor did hurt itself during qualifying at the FIA European Finals. This was sadly its last pass in the Lucky Devil Corvette as we have decided to up the game a little… We have a BAE521 HEMI engine ready to go in the car over the winter. In fact, the Chevy is already out of the car!
The Chevy has come a long way and done us proud but we want to be more competitive in the British MSA Pro Mod rounds and the two European Championship rounds held at Santa Pod. Still, 6.69 at 210mph with a 510 Chevy is not too bad I don’t think..?!
Massive thanks to my crew, Dennis and Luke, and also to my family, Belinda, Gareth and Joe. I would also like to thank my sponsors, Opie Oils, AllyFab and Kerry Tate at Originals Hot Rod Supply co. We are definitely looking forward to next year and would also like to thank all the spectators for their support and good wishes.
Sponsorship is a big thing. Please let me know if you would like to get your company some great exposure and join us as we take it to the next level in 2011.
Be sure to keep an eye out for further updates before we hit the track next year!”
“Great news!!! The Lucky Devil set a new personal best at the Summer Nationals at Santa Pod – 6.69 seconds at 210mph!! It’s great to be back in the 6 second zone and going quicker too. We are sure that there is more to be had from our Chevy motor and, the good thing is, we didn’t hurt a thing all weekend.
Pro-Modified isn’t a class to be taken lightly, its like getting in the ring with a Heavy Weight champ, its going to hurt quite a bit, but when things come good it’s all worthwhile! We managed to qualify 3rd and only just got beat in the first round against Graham Ellis, both of us having a “peddle fest” all the way up the track, great fun!!
Of course all this would not be possible if it wasn’t for the support of my crew and family, and of course our sponsors. THANK YOU to all!
I can’t wait to get back in the seat!”
