HOFTalk 12 – Priddle Tribute Issue

The Summer 2021 edition of HOFTalk, the magazine of the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame, has been published by compiler, UK Nostalgia enthusiast, and BDRHoF director Jerry Cookson with additional words by editor Simon Groves.


This latest issue is a tribute to the late Dennis Priddle, dedicated to his tremendous contribution to British Drag Racing from racing Top Fuel Dragsters and Funny Cars and his engineering skills, with many photos of him, on track and off-track, coupled with pages of tributes.


You can also read about the activities of BDRHoF members, tributes to members who have passed away, and a retrospective look at the 2010 BDRHoF inductee presentations.


2021 news includes details of the auction held at the 10th Anniversary Dragstalgia at Santa Pod Raceway by BDRHoF chair and director Lesley Wright, news about our great supporter Geoff Stilwell and his land speed racing plans, plus Pro Modified and Fuel Altered news from 2020 inductee Nick Davies.


Nick will be joined by other 2020 inductees Jeff Byne, Ian King, John Price, Dave Wilson, Pelle Lindelöw and Gunnar Elmqvist at this year’s Gala to be held on 20th November. Save this date in your diaries and the BDRHoF will be announcing all the details very shortly.
