day after Santa Pod! April 2001(please right-click
and choose "Save Target As").
The story is that we all took a day off work and happened to have a video camera ... download these movies!
Anyway, on to Santa Pod!
Some VERY nice machines were present, here a guy adjusts the electronic control on a motorbike. These things were doing sub-10 second quarter miles!
This is what it was all about - FTO's on the famous quarter mile!
Stewart Mutch (Black) and Martin While (Red)
Another reason for going was to try to beat the Honda boys. They did well!
This American muscle car was roaring up and down the strip all day
This thing was awesome...
...it actually lifted the front wheels off the deck!
Nuff' respect to the girlfriends and wives, they sat through the event when the boys played with their toys!
MUCH respect to this lady - VERY impressive! You should have seen her go - blink and you'd miss it!

This beautiful piece of work is how it looked intact.
He makes a mistake by keeping the power on too long and hard. The car slewed sideways tipping up on two wheels, smacking the barrier on the right then the otherside.
Thankfully the driver was unscathed. Shaken but unscathed.
It took over an hour to clean up.
