WPMC Club drags and Day street2strip

4th July will be MSA Drags practice from 9am till 1pm (MSA licence holders only) followed by STREET2STRIP from 1.30pm till 5.30pm, more info below.

Our next Friday evening STREET2STRIP is scheduled for 16th July from 7pm till 11pm.

If it looks like rain for either of these quarter mile events coming up we will rather postpone / cancel before the time than have to cancel on the morning of the event. This is not always possible to do and is costly. Our last event had to be canceled on the morning of the event due to the circuit being water logged, it did not rain during the time we were supposed to hold the event however the access roads, startline and slow down area remained wet until mid day and I still believe we made the correct decision.

So there you have it guys, places to check out over the weekend. I seems like the Zoopedup dyno day is definitly going to be something you dont want to miss out on aslo the drag day at killarney should be good drag racing action.
