Did Baz Young and Micky Moore's Desperado run a 7?

How about Micky Naylor's Medicine Man?

And of course leaving the best to last, Dennis Priddles 6.04 in Mr Revell, back in 1975.

I think the best times for "Desperado" were 8.25/191m.p.h. at the 1977 Santa Pod Supernationals Herb and "Medicine Man" and "Mr Revell" were the same car and not British built but built by Don Long in the States.

Nick, thanks for straightening out my senior moment!

Its surprised me only 8 cars, counting Plan X and The Happening separately, have run under 8 seconds... To me it feels like there should be more...

Is there a seperate thread on Dennis Priddles cars and their performances?
