MSA British Drag Racing Championship

Wayne Nicholson

Car: ’63 Chevrolet Corvette
Occupation: Bodyshop Manager for BMW
Home Town/Country: Ossett, West Yorkshire
Team: Lucky Devil
Best ET: 7.196 seconds
Best Terminal Speed: 191.13mph

In 2008, smart silver ‘Vette, Lucky Devil, graduated from Super Pro ET at snowbound Easter, bringing Chevy horsepower into a Hemi-dominated world. Much-needed track time was in short supply during the year and Easter’s freeze-up and a pair of 8sec passes before the Main Event rain-out did little to advance competitive ambitions. However, fine weather at June’s Summer Nationals (MSA Rnd.3) produced improvements, and hopes that the team was on the right track were confirmed with new personal bests at September’s National Finals (MSA Rnd.5).
