A short week for Mustang Maniac as we made our annual visit to Santa Pod Raceway arranged by Mustang Owners Club Of Great Britain. This is always a very popular day and fully booked months in advance. We were also lucky patches of sun but not baking hot.
Again Mustang Maniac sponsored the event and Yogi was dead set on bringing back a haul of silverware again. Yogi’s was interested in one thing only… his fastest classic crown. A real nice gesture was shown, but more on that a bit later.
There were was some amazing cars there some raced for the first time, some just showed up offer support.
We have this picture of a strange man lurking by Yogi’s car. He himself has a beautiful car and it’s also no slouch either. Rumour has it this man was looking over Yogi’s car for ideas to make his go faster. If you know this man – don’t give him any Rizzla papers as he will lose them.
There was a couple of serious cars coming out to play.
In fact a nice mixture of old and new cars, even the odd non-Mustangs infiltrated the day.
As the editor of this post I have the advantage of picking my favorite pictures to post. This candid shot of our very own “Lob Monster” Paul and Yogi lined up ready to go. I’m not to sure what was being said, but knowing these two, I reckon it would have been some serious trash talk about who had the fastest red car!
Then my favorite race picture is this perfectly framed and captured Yogi goin’ for it.
Some other racing action on the day.
We even have Yogi showing the moderns how it should be done. Worth turning up the volume for this one.
We mentioned that Yogi was after a haul of silverware, as expected he defended his Fastest Classic crown with his best of the day at a respectable 10.5 Although it was an improvement on his previous runs, he still wasn’t overly happy with that time, it was rumoured that he said “that will do for now, but I have an idea how to go faster – stop the (bleep) wheels spinning.” Again his nemesis is losing time trying to get of the line when you study his time sheet.
Yogi also won the “Fastest Speed” for a classic, but being the nice guy that he is, he stepped aside from the win and let the next fastest speed car take the trophy home.
We were expecting some more pictures of the day’s fun, but as we write this blog they haven’t arrived yet. So for now it will be a short and sweet post.
Thanks again to the Mustang Owners Club of Great Britain for organising another great day out. Same again next year please.
