Well done Jarv on a 13 sec run at action!

Post by orb » Sat Sep 03, 2011 9:57 pm

Just got back from a great day at VWAction where Phil Jarvis ran a 13.98 quarter in the fire bus.

Well done fella, made up for you :wink:

Sad day for Trevor in the Hot Wheels bus who unfortunately fried his clutch :cry:

Couple of new BWA members too - well done and welcome :wink:

Top Job, and great to see, well done Phil.

Strange that so far there have been no new BWA members this year!

I know there was at least one new member, maybe 2.
There was a clean red bus that ran a time and the red primered one, think that was his first sub 18 too. I'm sure they'll be in touch :wink:
