Drag Racing, Bishopscourt

So. On Friday night while being checked in anticipation of racing on Sunday, the Mercenary Drag Superlight's motor got 'sploded.

So. On Saturday morning Big Honda got pulled out of the hedge where it's been languishing over the winter and had all it's touring accoutrements pulled off.

And on Sunday Big Honda went drag racing in Bishopscourt. Conditions were wet and my head wasn't in the game at all and performance was disappointing. But MERCENARY will prevail!

So. The Mercenary Drag Superlight is going in a dumpster and Big Honda is going on a diet.

Mercenary Van

In the immortal words of Joe Strummer - We got a surface module and a belly dancer.

Still a work in progress. Watch this space...

Bishopscourt Drag Races

So the MERCENARY Superlight went drag racing last Sunday. Nothing broke, blew up or fell off and it ran a 12.5 at 106 mph which was what we were hoping for, so it was a pretty successful mission!

The chassis worked great, it was docile on launch and stable at speed and the brakes were more than adequate. All we really wanted from the motor was that it stayed together so we could test the chassis so that was good too.

So the plan now is to lose some more weight (bike and pilot!) and to fit a turbo and develop the motor for next year.

A big thanks to Trev for driving and coaching and thanks to Noel for pit support and taking all the photos.
