The evo did well and was pulling times in the mid 11’s, and beat a few v8 commodores!

This GTHO Phase III took a long time to get started but when it did get going everyone knew about it.

With a good start the ford was off, mid way down the track we herd the car decelerate, and puff out a cloud of smoke.

Even know the car was not running right it still pulled the best time of the night!
i only hope the next calder off street drag night is better and next time i will get there early.

Thanks for reading and see you all at calder this weekend for the Drift GP.
