Rick Stubbins won the Superstreet Bike class at the Hockenheim NitrOlympics, with an impressive 7.46 against Phil 'Woody' Wood's 7.78! Although Woody did regain some status with his return road style - Filter grinder!
Rick had qualified first with a 7.6 in the initial round of qualifying, gaining himself a trophy for doing so, while Scott 'Bob' Baldwin got a pot for fastest terminal speed in the first qualifier. By the time qualifying had finished, Graham Balchin topped the tree with an astounding 7.36, with Rick second on a 7.44.
Other trophies returned to Blighty in the hands of Pro Stock rider Len Paget for winning Pro Bike Eliminator, and Top Fuel pilot Ian King for Nitro Bike Thunder.
Congratultaions to all!
Interestingly, the 7.518 posted by Lenny in the Pro Bike Eliminator final, and the 7.657 from Kingy in the Nitro Thunder final, were both slower than the street-tyred, non-wheelie bar equipped turbo Hayabusa of Rick Stubbins...
