Pausa para Dragsters
Primeiramente obrigado Juanh e Motorsport Modeller pelos comentários, estou acompanhando seus blogs mas assim como acontece aqui ainda não consigo gravar comentários direto nos posts, gracias/thanks!!! Por curiosidade resolvi montar uns kits de Dragsters e gostei da brincadeira (mas os caras que os pilotam devem ser malucos, que máquinas mais estranhas!) Iniciamos com um Topfuel pilotado pela Shelly Anderson em 1997. Kit Revell-Monogram na escala 1/24. You might trouble tagging a blond from California as the fastes lady at the strip but there’s no argument: Shelly Anderson is both the quickest and fastes famele driver in NHRA history with her career best 4.658 second ET at 316.23 mph run. Shelly was the NHRA National Record holder in elapsed time from October 1994 to 1995. Her first career victory was the 1993 Keystone Nationals; one of only five woman drag racers to win na NHRA National Event title in a professional category. Shelly began driving rails in Top Alcohol Dragster in 1992, and moved into Top fuel at the Mopar Mile-High National that very same season. It really is like a family outing when the Andersons go to the drag strip. Shelly’s father Brad Anderson is a three-time NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car Champion and Shelly once served as him crew chief. Her brother Brad is a two-time NHRA Top Alcohol Funny car Champion, who will move into a nitro Funny Car as Shelly’s teammate for the 1997 drag racing season. Not so surprisingly, their mother Carol handles many of the management duties for this family-run racing team.The kit replicates Shelby Anderson’s Western auto/ Parts America/Texico Havoline Top Fuel Dragster as it appear during the NHRA 1997 season.
