Power Series Round One
16th/17th April '05
We arrived at the track quite
early and as the first of the Bunchers, we headed to the extended area of
the pits to set up camp. We unloaded the car, put up the awning, and made
Chris put her tent up all by herself.... Only joking! we all got stuck in
and got everything ship shape in time for Twisted Crew Dave to arrive (with
our order from the Off License!)

All the paraphernalia we drag
around with us seems to fill up our Bongo Van quite quickly, and although
the roof swallows quite a lot of stuff (including Helen), plans are afoot
for bigger transport. Watch this space!
As usual Pooky and Penny have got
the best job just sitting pretty in their new team shirts made by their
Grandma Christine (a.k.a. Twisted Crew Chris).
After all the hard work of
setting up, bedtime came around quickly and as it looked like it could be
cold, we all wrapped up warm.

We need a bigger van... and
whose are those legs?
Dean prepared for bed, it
could be chilly...
Smoke those tyres! We finally
coax some smoke from our girls.
qualifying round for the Wild Bunch was called for about 1:30pm and we
dialled in 12.90 we were rewarded with a 12.94 @ 99.35mph which put us in
No.1 qualifying position after the first qualifying round. The second round
call up took another couple of hours and we ran a 12.95 @ 98.81mph. No one
got closer to their dial in, so we remained No.1 qualifier.
The Wild Bunch are celebrating
their tenth anniversary and commemorative T-shirts have been made to mark
the event. They are pretty snazzy and are available from the Backdraft Bus
at the track, or directly from
Claire at an amazingly good value price of £10. (all the beautiful
people are wearing them this season, so get yours a.s.a.p.)
The effects of
a long day crewing and pushing seemed to take their toll on Crew member
Chris (left) or was it the shock of Chris's flash? You decide.....
Wild Bunch T-Shirts (as
modelled by Crazy Chris) are now available from the
