BDRHoF’s 2024 Grand Dragstalgia Auction

The British Drag Racing Hall of Fame is pleased to announce its fourth annual Dragstalgia Grand Auction taking place inside the event’s Historic Marquee, situated pitside near the grandstand. The auction features a wealth of artefacts and artworks generously donated to help in the raising of essential funds for the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame and its Benevolent Fund.

An array of items from the USA has been collected by Tony Thacker. Major donations from the home front include a Paul Whitehouse Art painting of Commuter and, from Jon Benn, a 125cm x 47cm poster of Commuter which has never been displayed. From the USA, there’s a copy of Carl Olson’s book Racing Through Life, autographed by the man himself. Donations from Mooneyes include a special MOON “Far-Out” table lamp and T-shirt. There are multiple donations from the estate of the late BDRHoF Member, Roger Gorringe

These are just some of the highlighted items but there are many others, including a host of books, posters, T-shirts, limited-edition and signed prints – too many items to list individually. And there will be plenty more on general sale too.

During the lead-up time to Dragstalgia we shall be highlighting all this year’s auction items on the BDRHoF Facebook page and website.

How to Bid: The auction takes place on Friday afternoon and all day on Saturday, closing promptly at 5pm. Visit the Historic Marquee to have a look at what’s on offer. If you see an item of interest, ask for the bid sheet relating to the numbered item to place your bid. Keep coming back throughout the auction period to check if anyone has outbid you. You can re-bid as many times as you like until the auction closes at 5pm on Saturday. Winning bidders will be notified by text after 5pm on Saturday and items can be paid for and collected by 6pm Saturday or until 4pm on Sunday. We can accept card payments.

The Hall of Fame will be pleased to welcome you to its display in the Historic Marquee from 2pm until 5pm on Friday and from 10am on Saturday and Sunday. The Dragstalgia Grand Auction takes place with the kind permission of Santa Pod Raceway. The Hall of Fame is indebted to all those who have so kindly donated items.
