The Induction Ceremonies will take place at the BDRHoF Gala Awards Dinner being held at the historic Oatlands Park Hotel, Weybridge on November 18th when Drag Racing personalities and fans from around the world will celebrate the commitment shown by these, all-too-often, un-sung heroes and the influence they have had on European Drag Racing.

2017 Gala Awards Dinner

Reservations for the 2017 Gala Awards Dinner can now be taken by email at or by telephone at 01933 279102. This year the tickets are priced competitively at £65.00 each and this includes a pre-dinner reception and table wine. The event always sells out well in advance, so if you would like to join us for the occasion we suggest you make your reservation sooner rather than later. On receiving your reservation you will be given the procedure to book rooms at the negotiated room rate that includes breakfast and VAT as well as parking.

On-going news about the Gala, sponsors and other events in which the BDRHoF is involved will be published on the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame website, and on Facebook and Twitter.
