Last weekend saw the 17th annual Gatton Street Sprints take place in the industrial area of Gatton, QLD. Two PGA-ers where among the field of 120 vehicles, ranging from Clubmans to Cobras and even a Nascar, and everything in between. Andrew (@007adr) picked up 3rd (1:24.200) in the Registered 1600-2000cc class which is an astonishing effort considering his N15 SSS S1 is bog-stock performance and handling wise. This makes a consecutive third placing as Andrew finished 3rd last year in his N14. Can he make it a hat-trick next year in a N16?
Paul (@Paullus) claimed 2nd (1:17.313) in the Registered 3000-4000cc class (forced inducted vehicles carry a 1.7 engine capacity multiplier), which is a great effort considering his front wheels did not have traction for the entire two laps of the street circuit. Throughout the weekend Paul was often spotted under the back of a few Evos eyeing off the rear diff and mumbling "Will this fit my N14?"
Apart from Paul sideswiping a traffic cone chicane Sunday morning which required some light polishing, neither Pulsar saw any damage over the weekend which is a great outcome for both drivers.
