2019 Donington Historic Festival

If you’re a regular reader here, you’ll already appreciate the haphazard nature of my posting. Not everything is necessarily in date order and this is one of those events. Right back in May, I spent a day at Donington for the Historic Festival. My main focus was again on my good friends Steve Wright and […]

Dragstalgia 2019

With given access to a time machine the choice of destination is a fairly difficult one. First you’ve got the time period, then the location. A quick search on youtube for ‘drag racing 1960s’ confirms this to be one of my top choices of period. As for location pretty much any Drag Strip in the […]

Mr Torquer

Here’s one to look out for, hopefully hitting the strip at Dragstalgia later this year. Mr Torquer. A piece of UK drag racing history, revived and improved by current custodian Paul Dawson. We first saw it in primer ready to be painted by Steve of Chopping Body and Paint and couldn’t believe the interior detail […]

Doorslammers at Santa Pod Raceway

Perfectly timed for the lunch break as we could only make half a day. I sat eating my sarnie refreshing the ‘Dark Skies’ app […]

CSCC Brands Hatch – with added darkness

November, dark wet cold. Yes I know its April but I’ve had a crazy few months. If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook you would have seen a lot of these already. So I’ve had time to edit, just not found the time to post on here. Where was I….. Yes dark, wet cold […]

The Brooklands Reunion

The 7th of August, 1926. Brooklands motor racing circuit, the first British Grand Prix, organised by speed record legend Henry Seagrave. Fast forward 90 years and what better way to celebrate than at Brooklands itself, with some of the original cars from that very race in attendance. With these and other Grand Prix cars through […]
