Cars and

Rune Fjeld "Top Fuel" Motorsport

European Champion in Top Fuel Thomas Nataas from Rune Fjeld Motorsport,

runs a short show of drag towards the end on Saturday

Wonder if the car is loud, or is everyone digging for some ear-wax. Except the cool motorcycle dude.....

 

The girl in the grey sweater had never been up to the rails as a Tup Fuel goes by,

the sound and air pressure is like nothing else on wheels...

But she smiled from ear to ear when the shock had faded out...:-))

 

This top fuel car is driven by Siw "Sunshine", also from Rune Fjeld Motorsport, is being built up from the ground.

On the right two of the builders take five, it is from left Sturla from Toten, Norway and Dave from Alabama, USA, Good "Old" Boyz...

Siw "Sunshine" had to wait a lot on Saturday to no good, as she did not get to drive

But on Sunday she got into action in her Top Fuel car and all this waiting was forgotten

She is sitting in her, also just finished, Bossie II Mustang - It suits her...:-))

The titel on this picture has to be Beauty and the Beast....

 

These guys are not tame, not even close....:-)))

A ingnition distributor with no power creates a little headace,

but Dave, with 20 years experience from American Drag Racing, sorted it all out..

Naptime, before Siw "Sunshine" get's back with the tripple A batteries...

 

 

Testrunning of the engine, Siw "Sunshine" keeps her game face on, but the smile cracked out when the nitro smell tickles her nose...

The test run is set for approx 1,5 seconds of full trottle, to run in the engine... Speed after that short time, approx 100 mph...

After she had passed, the team photographer (seen above relaxing) comes over and say's:

- Do you realize that this girl has more balls than us put together, I noded, because it is true.....

 

 

Todays test drag is over, the team photographer get's the pictures...

 

Cars and more cars

 

 

 

 

This Cab is waiting for the fog to lift....hehe

 

Stop, stop, this can't be good for the car....

Hmm.....Maybe the guy over here knew something, because the car broke something and got a limp.....

 

 

Everything can be tuned to race... Dare To Be Differnet..!!
