A DRAG racer had a disappointing Easter weekend at a British champion-ship race.

Ray White, of Chester Road, Sidcup, went out in round one of the Motor Sports Association (MSA) British Drag Racing Championship at Santa Pod Raceway, in Northamptonshire, which was held last Friday to Monday.

But an MSA spokesperson attributed the result to chilly, gusty weather, which made racing conditions difficult over the measured quarter-mile.

They added: "Cold air and low corrected altitude produced high horsepower and torque, the cold ground reduced traction. The combined result was vicious tyre-shake for all."

Mr White achieved a top speed of 190.92mph on the quarter of a mile track. Mechanical problems dogged his team's progress and, having appeared rarely on the 'Pro Mod' scene over the past two years, they lacked 'match fitness'.

The crew say they will aim for better things in round two at the end of May.
