Lucas Oil Backs 2015 BDRHoF Gala Awards Dinner

During the next few months there are many exciting announcements to be made about this year’s British Drag Racing Hall of Fame (BDRHoF) Gala Awards Dinner that is returning to the fabulous Savill Court Hotel, Windsor Great Park on November 21st 2015. There have already been press releases covering MQQNEYES sponsorship of the Sydney Allard Media Awards and the appearances of Ron Hope (Rat Trap), Waterbed Fred Miller (Blue Max) and Bob Muravez (Freight Train) as special guests. Once again it promises to be a night to remember and, as is the tradition, the announcement about this year’s inductees will be made in July at the Dragstalgia Event held at Santa Pod Raceway over July 10th to 12th 2015.

Another exciting piece of news that can now be made public is that Lucas Oil Products UK is again sponsoring and hosting the pre-dinner reception drinks and providing table gift items. Les Downey, Managing Director and Director of European Operations, Lucas Oil Products UK said, “We are delighted to be supporting this fantastic drag racing social event again. Last year’s occasion was one of the best we have attended covering any of the sports that we are involved with and I look forward to another great night this year. I know the attention to detail that the organisers give to this Gala Dinner and it certainly shows through”.

Stu Bradbury, BDRHoF Chairman said,

“A huge thanks to Les who is a long-time sponsor of drag racing. He has been an enthusiastic supporter of the BDRHoF’s strategy to increase the prestige and profile of the sport by injecting a bit of razzmatazz to the social side of things, making it appealing to sponsors and the media. Thanks to people like Les we now have an enhanced global presence that would have been thought impossible a couple of years ago. Bookings are already being taken from people who enjoyed the 2014 Gala Dinner so get in quick”.

Ticket prices will remain as last year at £60 per person. Corporate tables of 10 are available at £580. Room prices also remain as last year, £99 for double £79 for single including breakfast. Complimentary use of swimming pool, Sauna, Steam room, Jacuzzi, and free car parking are also part of the package.

For advance booking of tickets contact or telephone Stu Bradbury on 01933 279102. No deposits will be required until the summer but when other plans are announced this will again be an early sell-out event. Oh yes – there’s more exciting news to come.
