Mini vs Beetle Shootout
The 2014 season is finally underway with this year’s Mini vs Beetle Shootout! Winter has felt like it might last forever at times, but Easter weekend marks the start of York Raceway‘s season and there was a great range of cars out for the first day of this 2-day meeting.
None of the main classes were running on the Sunday, however many of the racers opted to partake in some “test & tune” time. They weren’t the only ones testing though, I was using the Mini vs Beetle Shootout meeting to test both my new camera & the new polarising filter I’d been bought – both performed well & will be staying for the season!
Unfortunately the day was not without its casualties, the stunning blue Chevrolet Nova pictured below was forced to retire for the weekend after breaking its prop shaft & Specky had to trailer the car home overnight to fit a new gearbox after losing 2nd gear.
We’ve also compiled a list of every car that’s covered the quarter mile in 8.99 seconds or less since we started going back in 2007, you can take a look here.
