7 seconds and the truth.


While doing some research for the Graham Berry and Dave Chung interview that's featured in the first issue of OnePercent Magazine I came across this footage of Lewis Wymer aboard the Clarkson/Wymer rear engined dragster nailing New Zealand's first ever 7 second run. He ran a 7.975 at 179.28mph to win the first round of the NZ National Championships at Champion Dragway, Meremere, 15th February 1976.

Also got this pic of Chris Piaggi and his coup (he's owned it since 1980) round at the Piaggi homestead on Sunday. Pork chops and conspiracy stories abound.
