Theo's ON EDGE for the Castrol EDGE Winternationals
It has been 9months since Theo Woollett's ON EDGE
Nissan Skyline GTR has gone down the Willowbank
This week-end's Castrol EDGE Winternationals will
see the return of the gold GTR to Willowbank raceway
some 33 kilograms lighter, a complete new drive
train and a driver looking to rewrite the record
Theo said "For the last couple of years I
really have had my sights set on the world record
which at the moment for one of these cars with
radial tyres is 8.61.
Back in January 2008 I ran my personal best 8.95
@ 160.43MPH but with limited budget, I found myself
not running as hard as I would have like just
to make sure I did not break any thing. So after
the Jamboree last year I decided to park the car
until I was in a position to have a red hot go
at the World Record.
We have removed the Nissan factory wiring harness
that was about 42kilograms. We rewired the Motec
system that was about 9 kilograms so we have a
car that is 30 and bit kg's lighter.
We have also installed a brand new Liberty Pro
Stock Z Style 5-Speed Transmission. So fingers'
crossed we will have great weather and we can
deliver a World Record to my major and event sponsor
Theo will have his work cut out for him when qualifying
for the ultra competitive Super Sedan bracket.
It has attracted 73 entries this week-end and
gets underway at 9am on Thursday.
Thursday qualifying results will be posted ASAP
