There’s not much to report from cars in the states (from what I know). It looks like Matt Ivan has hit a few races and a lot of people are still working on their cars; Chris Alamorian is wrapping up his new build, Joe Pendergest is tuning the new 20v as we speak, Paul Kiernan’s car is coming back together, I think Jersey Ben is still building a 20v, v-dubin@120 just updated his 16v build, and it goes on. I did stumble upon a 12v from western Pennsylvania that ran a 12.99 a while back. If things come together I expect you’ll see more car’s running later in the season.
South Africa has had some activity and there’s a new Mk1 added to the list running 11.8’s (currently #14). The car is still getting dialed in; the owner is expecting a change in ET and will send more information after the next event (should've been this past weekend). I just found a VR6 from over there who recorded a 12.808 during competition; this was from back in December and I haven’t seen much of anything posted about the car aside from previous runs. There was another 16v on the hook but unfortunately the engine had clearance issues and got damaged while on the dyno.
I’m due to read through some of the Brazilian forums and there are still 2-3 cars that need to be mentioned on the list. I haven’t put in a solid effort to get everything together from down there, it’s mainly due to the Portuguese, but I should get around to it sooner or later.
