  3. VWDRC 2015

    It's that time of year again, pre-season is coming up and there is still time for you to join us. What is the VWDRC? There are two classes in the VWDRC - Sportsman and Pro. Both are open to any vehicle that is either powered by a VAG-group engine or that is built around a VAG car/chassis. If your car is running quarter-mile times of 12.99 seconds or less then you are placed into the Pro class. What is bracket racing? Bracket Racing is a way of handicapping drag racing so that you don't need a super fast pro-race car or a huge wallet to win. Basically the competitor makes a series of practise passes. He or she then decides the average time it has taken to drive down the 1/4 mile and uses this figure as a 'dial-in' time. This figure can be adjusted within class rules as the meeting progresses. With two competitors ready to do battle these 'dial-in times' are written on the car (usually with shoe whitener on a window). As the cars come to the famous 'Christmas Tree' (traffic light starting device) the timekeeper enters these times into the computer. A staggered start is thus produced. The slower car leaves first and if both drivers run their perfect 'dial-in time' they will cross the line in a dead heat. But of course this never happens. A driver may react slowly to their green light or may fluff a gear change. They may have even lost engine power. So it is the driver who can most consistently run to their dial-in that wins the day, without running too fast ('breaking out' - going faster than their dial in) or leaving the start line before their green light ('red light', 'cherry' - early bath!). In short, Bracket Racing is a way of making drag racing "fair" so that it's not just the person with the most money that wins, it's down to driver skill, knowledge of your car and consistency

    Well I did rubbish at keeping this up to date. Bug Jam has been and gone, Open Sports Nationals has been and gone, Ed Keech a fellow Vr6oc member won the APIRA Championship in VW Sportsman and now goes into this weekends event the National Finals in No.2 spot in the VWDRC Championship. There will be a group of VR6OC guys coming along to support and watch the action, more the merrier. We have got Ed Keech in title contention, Dave Lea in runner up spot contention, Jacob Bailey (R32 Jetta) has a fight on his hands consisting of James Hodson 20vt and Jordy (20vt) for the VW Pro Championship title. Not to mention Ed and Dave will go head to head for Rookie of the year title. And and Dave is also up for the title of most consistent Qualifer. Man, there is so much on the line........be there!

    Vw Action is gonna be awesome this year, the lineup of cars we have for the Saturday night show is gonna be great. Last year 9.26 took No.1 spot, this year it's gonna be in the 8's. We have nearly all the VWDRC Pro cars going, Outlaw Flat fours, Renwagens and plenty of racers from Europe, including Don Octane with both his 8 second 4wd R30's, Ecko Fractal from France with his R30 mk2, some real hot Aircooled race cars and Wayne Allman with the Mental Breakdown Methanal pick-up truck amongst many other demo cars from the Drag racing world. Then if you fancy a go, there is VAG RWYB only during the day on Saturday and Sunday, Obviously myself and Jacob will be in the tower of power and we expect Vr6oc bank participation like last year
