Some pictures of Kotten's dragster from late 80's / early 90's. The photos have been on the wall of our garage as long as I remember. Ageless set of photos, the Bay Window is there and even Kotten hasn't changed much since. Only the Dragster looks today different after Henkka's lease over the last few seasons..
I guess most visitor and participant shared my overall "WTF-feeling" when seeing hundreds of camping vans and trailers occupying half of the pits. How about spending your holiday in asphalt parking lot middle of nowhere without any scenery nor lake nor river in sight?
Eagle Racing two-seater did few attempts, the one I saw was 8-second one.
Jussi's first 10-second runs with the Split. And no he is not racing against that Chevy Van :-)
Jyrki did his personal best with the Oval so far reaching into 11s.
Actually the first time I saw Kotten's Hitler's Revenge on drag strip. Kotten loaned the car for his old friend and his son, Jussi installed some IDA-equipped stroker to it (don't know any specs), first time out, guy first time driving it and first time in drag strip. Considering all of that low 14-second ET is very good achievement.
Battle of Antrasheisse Gray '63s. I think Juha was slightly faster than Otso, both are performing very well. Especially nice to see how Otso has developed a steady routine for burnout and clean run.
If I would have to take one of the cars in the event home, it would be Puavo's 911..
This '67 Chevelle did the most impressive burn outs.
Crowd pleasing 11-second Escorts.
Vilho's '63 Sonderbus capable of 15-second ETs, not bad considering the fact that Bus' aerodynamics are similar to apartment building :-)
Received 4th and crappiest 4.5" Fuchs some weeks ago. I didn't have high hopes based on the picture seller sent and so wasn't disappointed :-) Nothing though that polishing won't cure. Nice surprise to see original 911S paint scheme revealing under the rattle can paint.
