Is that right the (ex) Plan X chassis has been sold, abroad?
If its correct what plans does the new owner have, will it run again and in what class?

Arr, so that's why I saw the chassis and body panels on the back of a flat bed pick-up in the camp field at the Hot Rod Drags then. That's a real shame Gary but with the sudden interest in Funny Cars in the UK and Europe on the horizon then I'm not surprised.

I know that the john whitmore dragonfly in its final incarnation did 7.8 at the Pod and held the MD record for a few years. Hoping to achieve an eight next year with the slingshot I intend to debut.

In a well known chassis, with the dragonfly engine and alky set up it should be quick, I hope
