Drag Race June 2013 Event Report

HebrideanPlantHire

Lewis Car Club in association with Highlands and Islands Airports held the first of the two planned Hebridean Plant Hire Ltd Drag Races for 2013 on 1st June at Stornoway Airport.

Thirty eight drivers signed up for the event fifteen of who had made the trip over from the mainland. Without these fifteen entrants this event would have been cancelled due to low numbers from locals.  We also had one of the best turnouts of spectators ever at the event on what was a nice dry summers evening.

Drivers and spectators had travelled from all corners of Scotland for the nights racing ,Northern Fords Car Club www.northernfords.com who were up on the Island for the weekend had 13 members entered with member  Kenny Adam in his Honda S2000 powered Mk2 Cortina putting in the 5th fastest time of the night.
