We last witnessed a legal drag race exactly 12months ago, within a few months after it was organized everyone were soon thirsting up for another one! Although attempts were made to hold another drag battle early and mid this year failed, the green light came from the officials to hold it at the Katukurunda Air Strip to end this year.
The day began with a drive down the highway with a few friends
in a certain SR20 equipped Nissan.
As soon as we got there.. this is what i saw.
Just before the drags commenced a few of our friends like Janaka M
& Rumesh got the ladies to pose with them and their cars
Darin’s and Janaka T’s R35 GTR’s were going to run in the 4wd open class.
Meanwhile Rumesh’s office for the day was going to be in this Integra DC2 R
You can imagine how this sounded from the look on that guys face 🙂
Imran deeply concentrating to see if anything sounded off each time he revved the EZY Racing EG8
The once fastest NA EG8 has now gone forced induction… it will take part in the 2wd open event.
Talking about the 2wd open event.. Since of late Raveen has been playing around with lots of fiberglass & perspex glass to bring down the weight of his starlet gt… now thats sheer dedication.
In the last post of the Evo meet up, we did say that we would be keeping a close eye on Sathish… well it seems we have been doing it properly 😛
4AGE 20V Black top on velocity stacks… & in Sri Lanka! Way to go!!
definitely the cleanest EG8
Narmi powering the practice session
Shihan going full out on the practice session
“And now you’ll have Andrew Choksy in his STi 7, give you a flying run!” Yup he was giving a great live commentary about his practice run in progress… 😛
Rumesh @ warp-speed
The Mugen looking tough without its spoiler.
Nuzaf’s new Ver 9 STI was running
A nice set of wheels in full slick rubber
A certain Nissan
Plates all over…
Then the drivers were all briefed after their practice session’s
Concentrating & visualizing
Posing for the camera
Bored, Concentrating & Thinking
Boredom resulted in Sleep with a slight smile 😛
He was all happy lol
The God Father of Starlet’s and Turbo’s was out spectating this time.
Zakie was going to run with Rumesh. DB8 vs DC2
Rumesh warming the tyres like a boss &
They were off
Dhilan’s EF hatch vs Shihan’s EG
Shehan’s EP vs Thilina’s Turbo charged EG
Now we know why Raveen was all grinning in that photo lol
One of them broke into the 10.5 sec pass down the 1/4 mile
Definitely 1 of 300 – Drag Mugen RR
Narmi Gangnam style
Darin’s R35 vs Janaka T’s R35 just before they…
Alot of the guys wanted to see the factory turbo’d Nissan make a pass..
Zakie’s DB8 vs Janaka M’s Mugen FD2 RR
Forced Induction vs Normal Aspirated
Andrew & Nuzaf driving out of the pits
Janaka M went on to win the Cars upto 2200cc event & the 2WD open event in his Mugen RR
Raveen went on to win the Cars upto 3500cc Stock Turbo event in his Evolution III
Darin went on to win the 4wd open event in his R35 GTR
Seeing cars going full throttle on an open air strip is one thing and riding shot gun in it is a total different thing. Now what remains is experiencing it from behind the wheel. Lets see…
A shout goes to all those who were involved in putting the Drags together!
Great job guys!!
