Thanks to everyone for being with us and supporting Transitmania 9. As we said at the Trophy presentation it has been a task to put this years show on and fortunately Santa Pod came up trumps.We feel that it is all so worthwhile when we look at the quality of the work and time spent on your Transits. There are however a few things that we need to discuss and negotiate with Santa Pod for the future . A couple of suggestions have already been taken onboard and I`m sure and hope that there may be more, after all it`s your show and we want to continue to deliver an enjoyable weekend for you all.
As they say "watch this space".

All the best

Thanks to all the organisers for a great week-end and for sorting out the weather.

It was my first "Transitmania" and I'm looking forward to the next one.

I'm still on the hunt for a MKIII DI engine and IFS/steering rack for my MKI. Anyone out there that has one or knows the whereabouts of one I'd be grateful.

Well, I've never been drag racing before and it's not every day you can watch a top fuel dragster explode it's engine in a ball of flames at 240mph is it?

We saw her first run where she blew a cylinder on the start line and still clocked 289mph.

Didn't see her second run when the engine blew completely.

If anyone picked up a weekend program they no longer want I'd be very happy to swap some sovereigns for it.
