BDRHoF Bids for Auction Donations

British Drag Racing Hall of Fame will hold its third annual Grand Auction during Dragstalgia, writes Robin Jackson. The silent auction takes place in the pitside marquee, by kind permission of Santa Pod Raceway. The Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit organisation run pro bono by volunteers to celebrate the history of British drag racing and to recognise significant figures who have contributed to the sport. The Dragstalgia auction raises essential funds to enable the Hall of Fame to carry out its activities.

If there are any items out there – great or small, old or new – which their owners would be happy to offer towards the Hall of Fame’s good works, they will be greatly welcomed – used parts, team t-shirts or tea mugs, anything that might be of value to a potential bidder. Items are not limited to tangible objects. ‘Experiences’ will be welcomed too, such as being present during a pits warm-up or a passenger ride on a Street Eliminator cruise.

The Main Event will be an ideal occasion for items to be collected. Items can be left with HoF Hon. Chair Lesley Wright in the Venom Nostalgia Funny Car pit or at the NitroFM radio station behind the start line. HoF director Phil Cottingham (see photo) will be at large during the weekend and happy to accept deliveries. Phil can be contacted at
