The Hall of Fame could not exist to celebrate Drag Racing’s history and achievements without the support of our sponsors, and we are delighted to welcome new essential contributors.

Steve Ashdown’s name is familiar to all Drag Racing enthusiasts, and the Undertaker Funny Car and Ashdown Bulk Haulage are together offering their support. Ashdown Bulk Haulage provides emergency tankering for the water utilities industry, mainly in the south-east but, when required, throughout the country. The company also carries out CCTV work checking for, and jetting, blockages, while storm tank cleans, digester cleans and cesspit cleans are just some of its daily routines.

The Hall of Fame is indebted to Pete Dodd for introducing two more sponsors.

W.A. Watts Automotive provides quality vehicle repairs and MOTs in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, and stocks Millers Oils and Morris Lubricants. State-of-the-art facilities allow maintenance and repair of vehicles ranging from 1950s classics to modern hybrids and can cater for mid-season racecar requirements. Watts Automotive Racing’s 1967 Camaro competes in Pro ET. Click here to visit the company’s website.

In 2016 Three Brothers Brewing Company took an old car showroom in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, and built an 1800L microbrewery and taproom. As the company name implies, it is a family-run operation. Three Brothers delivers both traditional and craft beers and lagers, including gluten-free and vegan choices, and can supply supporting materials and equipment for beer festivals, events and bar hire, including bespoke-labelled bottles and cans to mark special occasions.
