Not an upgrade already!

I can see my mid-table position dropping soon too. Though its not bad for an engine setup that's been in there for 8+ years and been all over Europe.

I found a bit of time to do a few updates on the BWA website over the last week, made a couple of minor changes to member profiles and Personal Bests but the biggest news is that the 2010 gallery is now available, the button below will take you there!

There have been lots of updates to the BWA website over the past few weeks.. but before I start with them there are two members who have both run exceptional times!

First Tom, Präsi and the Wheelerdealer team recently improved on their personal best of 12.65 running a 12.25 at the recent Das Drag Day meeting in Bitburg, Germany. Awesome achievement for them and will help secure their position in the number 1 spot at the top of the BWA 'Top 20' for a little longer.

Also of note is Frank Dancer with his new personal best which took him into the 13's with a 13.81 second run and moves him up into the 3rd spot in the BWA 'Top 20'

Other Updates....

Picture Gallery updated with Bug Jam and the 8th Das Drag Day

Movie Gallery updated and includes on board footage of the Wheelerdealer 12.25 run

Various PB's and new members from this year also added.

VW Action pictures will be coming soon!

No new BWA members at Big Bang which is a shame, but on the up side I have updated the website as no less than 4 existing members ran personal bests so a huge well done to Orb (15.5234), Gary Yeo (15,8588), Phil Jarvis (14.5148) and Trevor Sharpe (15.4179) who also got himself into the Top 20 at #16, well done Trevor!

Re: BWA Website Update - 4 new Personal Bests and Top 20 Change!

Well done guys.

Jules, how about a 'Hall of Fame' section where buses that don't exist in that format anymore / sold are moved? There's 4 in the top 20 that haven't been around for years.
