The first Western Nationals I raced in was the 2010/11 season. I had a fuel pump problem and burned a valve that left me with no compression in number 5 cylinder so I was up against beat the heat team in the first round and I had to dial in a slower time but I should have run it on 5 cylinders all the time because I beat the heat and broke out and nearly did a PB on the brakes. Well that was me on the trailer.
