Drag Racing

Who doesn’t love the thrill of drag racing? 10 seconds of pure adrenalin where nothing else matters. We didn’t take long to make the decision to have a crack at this sport.

After checking out a 1971 Ford Capri online, we made a decision that this was the machine we would enter the world of drag racing with. Through the night the drive was made to Sydney hands were shaken and some coin changed hands and she was ours!

Upon arrival at Jimmy’s Chop Shop we immediately pulled out the 302 Windsor she arrived with and in with a 393 Stroker (well after a few skids around the joint) in preparation for Darren Cardiff to tick of another first. Keep an eye out for Darren later this year as he tests both man and machine on the quarter mile.

Now with the 393 squeezed in and the new Gazzard rear end to help put the power down she is almost ready to roll
