WHAT?! TIMING SYSTEM FAILS THREE TIMES FOR TOP FUEL MOTORCYCLE & PRO FUEL NITRO HARLEY DRAG RACERS

Added by AutomotiveUploads

For drag racers, it’s rare to experience a timing malfunction but it is incredibly frustrating when it happens. This may be one of the most frustrating stories ever as Australian Drag Bike racers Gavin Spann on his four-cylinder, Elmer Trett motor Top Fuel Motorcycle and Les Holden on his Hawaya Racing Pro Fuel Nitro Harley try to get qualified for the biggest race of the year, the weather affected 52nd annual Gulf Western Oil Winternationals from Willowbank Raceway in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia.


After two scheduled sessions were canceled due to rain Spann and Holden lined up for their one and only qualifier. A problem that has been occurring at this frequently surfaced, two green lights came on before the tree was properly activated. IHRA and Thunder 400 CEO Maurice Allen said it was a problem that was occurring switching between a pro and sportsman tree. Holden takes off and gets no time but does get on board data. Even more frustrating for Spann, he backs up his bike, blows it out and by the time he’s called it starts to rain. That rain would cancel the remainder of the evening.

IHRA decided the only fair solution was to give the class one qualifier on Sunday morning. Jay Upton and Chris Matheson has no problems but Holden and Spann were in disbelief when it happened to them again! They backed out, cooled down and waited for another shot.

Would you believe me if I told you it happened for a third time! It was actually four times as they tried twice on the third attempt! Talk about some bad luck. You have to see this to believe it!
