Fastest GTR at Santa Pod

In the F class lol
Sitting browsing the Santa Pod website late Saturday night I noticed that there was a Female class at run what you brung during USC.
My brothers missis was coming to Santa Pod with us. So me and bro decided we was going to get her to run our GTR down the strip. Bearing in mind we have only owned the car 2mth and she has only driven it once for about 3 mile lol. She normally drives a 1.2 corsa and has never been to any car show so Santa pod was her 1st lol.
We arrived and went to sign on. The fastest for a female in F class was 12.8. I said thats it it is in the bag lol.
I had my 4 runs as we didn't even know what the car would run. I ran it once in full auto mode with all R's selected as a trial. It ran a 11.6 so she is probs half my weight so should pi$$ it we thought. If she doesn't bottle it or anything go wrong.
I finished my runs and she got in. We gave her a pep talk and fingers crossed she could do the business. As she joined the queue we was made aware her timed run would only count if she ran before 4pm. Holy crap it was 3.46 and she was 5 cars from the front. Me and my bro went and pleaded with the cars in front (thanks to everyone who let us queue jump especially 10sec grey gtr) to let her push in lol.
she managed to get to the front just in time. As she lined up she had 1 attempt her 1st and only go at drag racing lol to put in a quick time. Then the announcer mentioned they was bringing the leading female down. It was a full drag prepared civic with MT drags slicks and a turbo that big it needed a hole in bonnet to fit lol. Plexi windows, no carpets seats dash etc massive burnout and they lined up side by side.
The civic sounded and looked like it would do the business. The civic launched off well. Sally in our GTR had listened well to our advice and set off once she saw the green light. No room for a false start.
She set off well and kept it planted. Pulling well mid range and reeled in the civic. The civic had knocked a full second off her time and ran a 11.8.
Sally in the GTR managed a 11.6 @ 123mph Wahoo she had done it. The fastest female at USC. Trophy on her 1st ever run.
ONLY SOFT DRINKS COME IN 2ltr aswell as evo's, scoobies, cossies etc etc...
