Robbinator 260kmph!!! Saldanha 800m Drags

Post by Bird 455 » Sun 27 Oct 2013, 13:21

Hey guys, Robbie & his team(Team Orange) took 2nd place at yesterdays Saldanha's top speed event! He trapped at 260 kmph on his shakedown run. He raced his orange V8 MK4 30s. The event was won by the Twin Turbo Lumina with a close speed of 262kmph.

Congrats Robbie! I hope you competing next year! We just might have the title back in Cape Town!

Cheers
Theron

Come to think of it the lumina should of got way more than 260 ... Although they tell me he only put his foot flat towards the end of third gear

Thanks for all the kind words guys.....we all had some major fun and the run felt awesome.

Theron.....we for sure are going to work towards improving on the 260kph bud.......maybe just a driver change is what's needed ;)......you know I prefer to just chill on the side than been in the seat :)

Will post up some pictures later....

Cheers......Robbie.

Well done Robbie, It is really great seeing the old school V8's kicking ass :) You really embarrassed some big money cars :) what combo are you running in that awesome looking Cortina ?
