AWD Turbo Opel Corsa – Build Thread

There were loads of cars sliding around the parking lot and the crowd enjoyed every second of it.. The parking lot had to be wet regularly to protect the surface …

This weekend was the 1st official practice at the WPMC. It was quite the awesome turn out of cars, it looks like this years 2012 season is going to rock.

MSA Drags offers competitions, also known as Bracket Racing (more info on this to follow) which counts towards championship points to determine the top 3 champions for the year. After each event there is also a prize giving where you could possibly take home trophies and/or prize monies (TBC). ALL drag racing runs will be published after each event. Nice for analyzing your runs, etc.
