    Shakespeare raceway 22nd July

    Things seem to have been a bit quite on the drag front this year but is anyone planning on going to shakey on the 22nd/23rd of July?

    I believe it is the final year for racing there so it would be nice to have a final bash.

    850 tdi - sorely missed.

    Hope to go myself, especially with this being the last year for Shakey*

    Like Steve, I like to but it is dependant on a few factors, one of which is getting the Green Bitch running competitively again, I would ideally like to do the weekend and have a few beers saturday night around the fire...

    I'd say we can always run the '90s, but I think the fuel costs would cripple me down to Shakey
