Being at SEMA is always an amazing experience but I can honestly say that 2019 will be a visit to remember. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would actually be able to walk across the four lanes of one of the most iconic drag strips in the U-S-of A. From our workshop in Malaga to the home of two NHRA national events and over 50 other events annually we had the pure pleasure of walking around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway drag strip.
They reckon they can reach speeds of 330 miles per hour (530 kms/h) over here, but as a guest of the famous McLeod Racing I wasn’t going to chance it.

McLeod Racing are a global supplier of clutch kits, clutch components, hydraulic bearings, flywheels, bellhousings and other performance driveline products. In 2008, Professional NHRA Driver Paul Lee acquired McLeod Racing, inspiring change to expand into new markets and widen the product line. It was great to meet Paul and to hear about some of the new products coming out of their California headquarters.

This is one of the most amazing things about SEMA. The chance to chat about the latest parts and accessories with the people who make them and then to bring that knowledge to our customers. I’ve been to a few SEMA’s now but this is one I certainly will not forget. – Ian.
