There's nowt as light as a hole, so add lightness.

Nitro doesn't add power, it multiplies it! Bob Loux, running 10.07 secs @138mph on a 650 normally aspirated Triumph drag bike in 1965!

Sounds interesting.
Apparently North Weald airstrip have just announced the end of drag racing there due to noise complaints from residents -don't buy a house next to a dragstrip then! Sad

Mr Dslam & I know Tony Huck, the guy who runs/ran Test & Tune events at North Weald (basically twin lane ¼ mile stuff), and we’ve chatted a bit about this a while back.
Have a read of what was in the Guardian back in May 2018, it’ll shed a little light on the subject.
