30.06.06 - Gold gets ugly!
UK Super Pro ET racer Derek Flynn of Eurodragster.com News sponsor Gold RV says that his Gold RV Racing dragster is "Getting ugly" in time for next month's Total Seal Super Pro ET Shootout at the Drachten Internationals.
"We have recently purchased a new big ugly hat (right) to replace our birdcatcher which was rather battle-scarred from our blower incident earlier in the season", says Derek. "We cannot wait to try it out at Drachten, whilst we were loathed to change things after running four 200+ mph runs in a row. The old birdcatcher was cracked and needed replacing. We hope that the big and ugly catcher will also allow a better airflow as the previous hat was behind the roll cage (and my big head).
"We are really looking forward to our first international race and to meeting up with our Dutch friends again, and we can't wait to contest this Super Pro invitational. We would like to thank Performance Unlimited and Total Seal for putting up the $2,000 prize money for our class and we shall be doing all we can to win it, or at the very least to put on a good show for you!
"We are also taking Pete Walters and his J&W/Gold RV Junior Dragster to the event. Hopefully Pete can continue with his good form and maybe bring home another trophy to add to his growing collection!"
