UK Guys - Any of you heard of this truck?

Drag Times.com references a 1994 Land Rover Defender pickup drag truck that clocked a blistering 11.89 seconds in the 1/4 mile with a trap speed of 122.53 mph at Santa Pod Raceway in Wellingborough !

Truck is a 5.2 litre nitrous injected V8, four turbos (twin sequential per cylinder bank) with tailgate mounted twin Kenlowe fan intercooler. Corvette six speed and rear end. Doesn't specify if the 5.2 block is a Rover derivative or other make. There was no photo in the write-up.

Real or Urban Legend? Sure would like to know more about this.

Yes, I thought of that Series, (now wrecked), too; but this reads like a different vehicle all together.

Certainly not the same truck. I bet the guys at RPI Engineering would know it.
