Below is the race report which will be in next months American Car magazine

Outlaw Street 2015 Race Series

Round OS-4 2015
OS-4 22nd MOPAR Euro Nationals Santa Pod Raceway 24th - 26th July


Normally the biggest challenges in Outlaw Street are trying to get your car to run faster and to not 'nod off' on the start line and cut that perfect reaction time.

However there was a new challenge at this years MOPAR's 'mother nature' who despite all the amazing efforts of the track staff and Euro Nats team was destined to win.

Due to the downpours on both Friday and Sunday, all three days racing had to be squeezed into one day when the sun finally decided to give all the sodden petrol heads a break and let us go racing.

Big thanks to the track staff who worked tirelessly to dry & prep the track so racing could go ahead on the Saturday, Outlaw Street had a large turn out for the MOPARS with the pit area stretching as far as the eye could see and despite the damp start spirits were high as the 'bench racing' banter had been on overdrive on the Friday.

With the track open until 8pm on the Saturday several members were squeezing every last drop of track time in they could, with one member making 11 runs in a day!! Not that folk are getting competitive trying to win a trophy of course.

The top points scorer of the weekend and winner of the years FREE American Car magazine subscription was Troy Attree in his late model LS1 Camaro, which now packs a shot of nitrous who secured 221 points.

Top points scorers of OS-4:
1. OS-10 Troy Attree in his LS1 Camaro with 221 points
2. OS-47 Eric Humphreys in his turbo changed Firebird with 219 points
2. OS-56 Doug Harwood in his supercharged Barracuda with 219 points
4. OS-44 Linden Shepperson in his MKII Escort with 218 points
5. OS-9 Rob Leyman in his turbocharged Monaro with 217 points
6. OS-31 Nick Rose in his supercharged Mustang with 211 points

There were several 'cherries' over the weekend with members deep staging & red lighting, trying to cut that extra millisecond off their RT in the hope of securing a Joe & Co sponsored Reaction Time trophy.

The 'Queen of RTs', and last years RT champion OS-27 Trudy Slater was back on form with a very impressive 0.0328 RT which secured her the OS-4 RT win, although she was being fiercely chased with only 0.0978 between the top three RT's of the weekend.

Top 6 RT's of OS-4:
1. OS-27 Trudy Slater in her Morris Minor with 0.0328 RT
2. OS-10 Troy Attree in his LS1 Camaro with a 0.128 RT
3. OS-34 Tony Hayter in his Tri- Chevy with a 0.1306 RT
4. OS-44 Linden Shepperson in his MKII Escort with a 0.1355 RT
5. OS-56 Doug Harwood in his Supercharged Barracuda with a 0.1546 RT
6. OS-14 Kline Demaine in his Small Block Chevy powered Capri with a 0.2055 RT

With the main aim of Outlaw Street and drag racing of always improving on your own PB (and beating the car in the other lane), the WASP £25 parts vouchers awarded at each round to the member with the best improvement are definitely proving popular.

OS-4 was clearly a 'good round' for OS-10 Troy Attree who won not only a years free American Car subscription but also secured the WASP £25 parts voucher with an improvement on -1.1421 seconds on his previous rounds PB.

OS-4 2015 Biggest ET Improvements:
1. OS-10 Troy Attree, -1.1421 seconds (100 points)
2. OS-9 Rob Leyman -0.8114 of a second (99 points)
3. OS-30 Clive Bush -0.6482 of a second (98 points)
4. OS-68 Debbie Taylor -0.2518 (97 points)
5. OS-44 Linden Shepperson -0.1881 (96 points)
6. OS-56 Doug Harwood -0.1727 (95 points)

We're now at the halfway point of this years series with four rounds down and four left to go, and it's clear that there's everything to race for with a number of members rapidly climbing the league table. REMEMBER the final points for the series are 6 rounds out of 8 NOT all 8...

1. OS-56 Doug Harwood - Barracuda with 685 points
