Santa Pod anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have just come back from an excellent day at santa pod race track doing quarter mile runs with the Audi S5 owners club!

It got me thinking, would be great to get some esprits there.

Reasons:-

1) As an owners club the Audi boys had thier own paddock enclosure big enought for about 60 cars (although there were only about 25 of us - still a good turn out though)

2) It was only

Good man! I knew you wopuld be up for it!! I would be very surprised if you didn't post a 12 second time! And that is good by anyones standards, that is of course if you do not cave in under the race pressure!! I was very surprising how many people forgot how to drive when they got their cars on the strip!!

Any more fore santa pod??? Its good fun, its cheap and there are plenty of people with wierd and wonderful car creations to look at and talk too!

I'd be interested in the crack, but believe me when I tell you my old Carb Turbo ain't close to fast, and there's an old man behind the wheel!

Mmm...

As it appears to be a straight line i think the Esprits 'might' just have me on this...

:devil:'

I'd deffo pop along for the day, would be very interesting to see how quickly the

various models go off the line. More interesting still who is prepared to do it also.

:D

Personally, I'd rather do a track day. Going fast in a straight line putting unnecessary high impact strain on the drivetrain and wearing tyres out to please others isn't why I own my car. Going fast around a track seeing just how good my Esprit is makes me smile much more. Just my 2p.

How many do we need to get an Esprit day like your S5 day as opposed to an open "run what you brung" ?

Without wanting to Hijack the thread, your Blue Sky Thinking has indeed sent shockwaves through my system. I am gonna run a few modification ideas up the flagpole see if they get a salute.

Roger,

You can't put claims like the FASTEST, SEXIEST ESPRIT on your avitar without proving it!! :) This is your chance to get a peice of paper proving your claim! and have some serious fun doing it!

Bibs,

I take your point about track days - as you know i used to do one a month in my old Beemer, but the thing of a track day is that they are much more expensive - i was paying between

Yeah the Audi S5 owners club were making similar promises when we went! My non resonating exhaust and lighter wheels with my re-map is going to be fast than your car with is bolt on bit and bobs!

An guess whose was the fastest? Me in my standard S5!! Its not just the car that has to perform you know :)

Anyway i think the gaunlet has been set! Shame i am not going to be in the esprit (although if i were it would be the slowest car on the forum as i would have to push it a quarter mile!)

Glad the thread is getting some interest. I think it is worth while doing with just a few cars but obviously the more there the better!!
