    I have always enjoyed drag racing at Santa Pod and did it in my Polo G40 and got hooked.

    So i took the A3 on there and really enjoyed it.

    Got 14.44 seconds in the end after quite alot of runs.

    Not as fast as i thought it would be but then again another member with 8L S3 with 265bhp got 14.55 so i guess its not a bad time.

    Did anyone else pop along today?

    That's a good time mate. Very respectable.

    It would be interesting to see how your time compares to the same car with Revo as opposed to bluefin.
