Panmure’s Chris Browning pushed his street-legal 1994 Mitsubishi Evo to a blistering 10.879 seconds elapsed time during the second round of the Night Speed Drag Wars series at Meremere Dragway. Chris came to the meeting fully prepared with the car not only WOF and REGO’d but fully tech inspected and carrying a drag racing license to allow him to run a sub-11. It was great to see his efforts and preparation pay off.
