Lawrence Quarter Mile Sprints

The annual Lawrence "all-comers" Quarter Mile drag trails attracted some of the fastest cars in the South on Saturday.

All entrants drove road-legal vehicles, but Grant Finn’s 1996 Falcon was the fastest on the day with a blistering 11.09sec over the quarter-mile (402m) of ordinary tarmac and chipseal road.

Dunedin’s Gary Tansey came second in 11.42sec in his Audi, followed by Milton veteran Steve McLay’s Corvette in 11.70sec.
