The British Drag Racing Hall of Fame will be attending Santa Pod Raceway’s Dragstalgia meeting on the Saturday and Sunday 14th and 15th July and will have its own marquee courtesy of its title sponsor Lucas Oil Products and Santa Pod Raceway. The marquee will be placed in the traders area near Janne Johansson’s Swedish historic Funny Car display.
The marquee will be manned all day on both Saturday and Sunday, and there will be an opportunity to meet British drag racing legends, including Nobby Hills, Dennis Norman, Gary Page, Dennis Priddle, and Barry Sheavills, who will be attending a signing session from 1pm to 2pm on both days. To mark the start of the signing sessions, the Yesterday’s Dreams AA/FD of Bill Sherratt (pictured) and the True Blood dragster of Ian Turburville will be cackled at 12:45pm.
There will be memorabilia available for raising money for the BDRHoF Benevolent Fund, and the BDRHoF have struck a deal with sponsors Kelsey Publishing to have a special giveaway of current editions of Custom Car magazine in order to promote subscriptions to the magazine, itself a member of the BDRHoF. You will also be able to sign up for the Gala Dinner to be held on 17 November at the Oatlands Park Hotel, Weybridge, Surrey which is near Brooklands and Mercedes Benz World.
BDRHoF chairman Stu Bradbury said ‘Dragstalgia is looking to be another fantastic event and fans will have an opportunity to meet and talk to some of the most iconic names and pioneers of our sport, as well as experiencing cars cackling up close and personal. We look forward to seeing race fans at our marquee on both days’.
The 2018 inductees to the BDRHoF will be announced on Friday 13th July.
