SWRC Track & Race Day at Aghadowey Race Track

0 Replies

An overcast, hot, muggy day stuck me to the leather hide of the Nissan S14 as I made my way to Aghadowey for another track day.  Yes, a charming thought and as I joined the large queue of cars in the pits.  A row of 3.0 Senators, a Mk2 Escort, Evo 5 and Buff’s skyline among others were lined up ready for action.

Dry track conditions translated into balls of tyre smoke at every corner for the drift drivers and high speeds for the race drivers.  Needless to say over-excitement caught a few of us out with spins and unplanned ventures off the track.  No-one could say the drivers weren’t trying!

Several pairs of rear tyres later, and the race cars were out on track with the drift cars in between and the day finished up with the drag racing which saw Airforce 1’s Evo 5 take fastest of the day.

Special thanks to Gareth McLaughlin for supplying photos from this event.
