31.05.07 - Flynn's last blast

UK Top Methanol racer Derek Flynn of Eurodragster.com News sponsor Gold RV says that next month's SPRC Summer nationals will probably mark his last outing in Super Pro ET. Derek's new engine will render the Gold RV Racing dragster illegal for the class.

"I feel a twinge of sadness that this may have to be our last outing in Super Pro, unless there are rule changes in the future", says Derek. "As we reported earlier in the year, we really enjoy competing in Super Pro ET, a great class full of great people, and we had intended on competing in the class at a few events each year. However, we have now purchased a Hemi and a screw blower which will rule us out of Super Pro, but which should definitely help us in our quest to go quicker and ultimately that five second run that we are now aiming for. I wanted to try to see out the year with the Chevy but now that we have a Brad in the workshop my crew just can't wait to put it in the car and it will probably be in there for the European Finals.

"Even though things have not quite gone to plan so far this year, I am quite happy with the steady progress we have made in the ten or so runs we have had in the new car, and would like to thank all my crew for the effort they have been putting in. We feel that the weather robbed us of the chance to get back in to the sixes at the FIA Main Event. We would like to thank Joe Pando from MSD for his help and assistance, it is really great that a US supplier of such standing is helping us racers over this side of the Pond, long may it continue.

"We really hope that our last outing in Super Pro ET will be a good one and that we can lay down some good numbers again before leaving the class, and as we have always been Chevy men we will be a little sad to say good bye to the Bow Tie too. We know we can still get a lot more out of what we have and we just hope we get a chance to prove it. The Rodeck aluminium engine with Bow Tie heads will be available after this meeting having been freshened for the start of the season with new rods, pins, bearings, a couple of new pistons, new push rods, springs etc. If you are interested then please get in touch with me at derek@goldrv.co.uk."
