COMPUTER FAILURE COULDN’T SPOIL THE VIBE AT KILLARNEY DRAGS

COMPUTER FAILURE COULDN’T SPOIL THE VIBE AT KILLARNEY DRAGS

To err is human, they say, but to really mess it up takes a computer. And that’s exactly what happened in Round 1 of the MSA Drag Racing season at Killarney International Raceway on Saturday 2 March.

A fried hard drive in the computer that correlates the results didn’t affect the timing but it did mean the timekeepers were unable to compile a result on the day – but that didn’t spoil the vibe as competitors lined up their cars and bikes for a superb day of drag racing at the home of motorsport in the Western Cape.

And if you don’t think they were serious – at least two front-wheel drive cars turned off their half-shafts on the line!

Conditions were perfect, with cool air and a warm track surface; the best of the cars were running in the low 10s, and the bikes in the high eights, to the delight of a large crowd.

The timekeepers hope to have collated results within a week, which will just get us revved up for the next round on Saturday 30 March – see you there!
