Honouring Those Who Built The Sport

The British Drag Racing Hall Of Fame was established in 2006 to recognise significant contributions or achievements in the sport of British Drag Racing.

Currently the twelve selection board members consist of club & track officials, promoters, former racers, journalists and fans with a long background in the sport – they convene annually to consider nominations for induction into the Hall of Fame. Nominees with the most votes are informed by letter and invited to the presentation ceremony.

Presentations are also held at race events or at an alternative venue of the inductee’s choice. Those honoured for inclusion into the Hall of Fame will receive a ‘Bootsie’ a quality crystal tablet encapsulating an image of the late Allan ‘Bootsie’ Herridge, a man who put so much into British Drag Racing, together with an exclusive gold enamelled commemorative pin badge.

Eligibility for induction into the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame is extended to any individual or group of individuals who have driven, ridden, owned, designed, built, maintained, prepared, promoted, officiated, supported or taken part in any capacity connected with British Drag Racing, and to organisations which have played a notable and distinguished role in the sport. Inductees shall have been retired from the sport for at least three years or have been engaged at the highest level for at least 20 years, or otherwise be recognised for their significant contribution. Inductees are characterised by mastery of their particular fields and by the courage to innovate.
