I've been keeping in touch with someone at York Drag Strip here in the UK , and Paul Hamilton from VWSpeedshop is at the 2nd UK Drag Day , testing the new motor setup in his Bay Window panel van . It has a turbo motor and has run a best of 12.6 last year .

He has driven the bus the 2.5 hours to the track  Cool

So far he has done 2 passes , the first a 13.2 , the second 12.0 @ 114 Shocked , backing off in third .

He didn't get any more runs in , due to an oil leak dripping on the turbo , here is the 12.0 run
