Given that this shiny, new blog-thingummy is capable of following news and events somewhat closer than a monthly printed magazine, it's probably a good idea for us to get into the habit of advising you lot what you can do during your weekends and leisure time. So let's begin - are you all listening carefully children?
This weekend sees the Summer Nationals at Santa Pod, with the bike line-up including an unprecedented number of seven second Superstreet bikes, including one particular rider heading over the Pond from the US of A to have a play. Florida-based Walter Sprout is a Pro Street rider who has clocked an astounding 206.54mph through the traps at the end of the quarter mile last year, and has run as low an ET as 7.20 on his Nxt Level Racing equipped bike. He'll be riding Steve 'Copperhead' Mead's turbo Hayabusa at Santa Pod this weekend - good luck Walter and Steve! It'll certainly be interesting to see how he copes with the British race environment, and how the ACU top runners react to the AMA number two Pro Street bike racer!
There's a Peak Performance Day at the Pod today, where many racers will be testing, and qualifying starts tomorrow morning. More details at Santa Pod
