Who knows   :shrug:  it depends how many cars line up on the day . It's more of a show day than a drag day so it should be ok . Don't forget a helmet ,long pants,shoes, and a long sleeve jacket / top .  I think they run the drags for a couple of hours .

Yes, Thanks mate. Organised a helmet last night, keen to see how Stock (almost) Ecoboost does in 1/4 mile. I am hoping for comfortable 14s  :burnout:

All good  :thumb: and remember if it's an auto put it in track mode with traction control off and let it change gears not you  :grin:  no paddle shifting . A mid to low 14 is what it should do  :burnout:  :grin:

What are the date rules? I've got a CAMS accredited one I don't use anymore.

In most cases going from paddle shift to sports mode and letting the car shift itself can drop the times no problems .  I had 2 mates race their FG - XR 6 turbos and both dropped around 1/2 second  when I told them about this ,same with Ryan with his new mustang turbo .

Finished fitting my new kitchen today so had some time to investigate helmets. My AS 1698 that I previously used for circuit work is trash.

RE: Helmets at Willowbank.
The Willowbank website states ... http://www.willowbankraceway.com.au/pages/?PageID=89
   Helmet Requirements - IHRA licence holders are to abide by the current IHRA rule book at any event. At Race Ya Mate and Street Series events we allow street vehicles (i.e. - non IHRA licence holders) to use the AS/NZS 1698 min standard helmet.

However, CAMS sanctioned events no longer allow any 1698 series helmets.

Nice time Glenn - same as Motor Trend achieved in a 2016 six speed manual with "performance package".
