We have a big post for you today with lots of pics from the Mustang Owners Club Of Great Britain orgnised day trip to Santa Pod which was a couple of days ago. Mustang Maniac was invited to come and play, which of course was challenge accepted. Yogi had his engine in and completed mid week which has just a handful of miles on the engine since the rebuild. So for this time Yogi was not running flat out as normal, he was still running the engine in, revs turned down a bit and gently does it. For Yogi, it was mostly taking passengers down the quarter mile for a little fun. A well turned out meeting and not just for Mustangs ready to tear up the strip either.
Less chat from me and on with the pics. This year the pics were not taken by our usual source on the day, but by Mustang Maniac’s own in house Professional Photographer; Chris Tilley from Drive Photography. Pop over and give him a like:
There is a great video on YouTube of the day that Chris has created here:

Action for the rest of the day, in no particular order;
Is it just me, or this a menacing shot? Yogi comes out to play!
Yogi did have a run on his own and found out his traction issues were compounded by the extra horses he had under the hood, he did declare than he needs better tyres before he plays properly next time. All in all, he was fairly happy with the day’s running.
Everybody was interested in the times between the Mustang 2.3lt EcoBoost vs the V8 bigger brother, it was not the wipe out as expected. Adam bringing home the “Enos 350” Eco boost in just 0.5second behind the V8s. Now that is impressive from an engine around half the size of the V8s.

A fantastic days fun, and we must put out a big thanks to Roy & Jacqui from the MOCGB who were the principle organisers this year. Thank You.
