Worlds Fastest Barndoor:
A big thank you to all who made this amazing weekend happen and helped realizing our 12 seconds dream with an aircooled 4 cylinder VW non turbocharged, non NOS, non knick-knack engine, Without the help of all you guys that wouldn't have worked out at all!
 
First of all our friend Ivan McCutcheon for storing the old lady, the nice gifts, all your support and the time, Brian Burrows and the Santa Pod crew for this great event (great organisation with friendly people all around), Mark Prosser (Auto Techniks) for your helping hands and your idea to solve our shifting problem (you are the weekends secret hero!), Craig Gibbs and the Obsession Motorsports Team for borrowing the tools that were needed, Alan "Scotty" Scott for the offer to organise a replacement shifter which would have taken him a 30 min drive, Tim Sykes (early VWs) for the offer to borrow his own shifter (that, if needed, he would dismount from the Beltek) and Rikki James for making it possible that the BWA (Buses With Attitude) could race again on Sunday where Spez even ran the 12.65!
 
Apart from that a big thank you to all we forgot to mention here, we are still very impressed about the support we got and it was very nice to meet you all and talk to you. We hope that we could have given something back to all of you getting the 12 second run on the UK ground!
 
See you soon, take care!
