It was the ’34th’ Annual Hot Rod Drags in Sept at Santa Pod Raceway UK.  An event that takes the accolade as being Britain’s longest-running nostalgia drag racing event also holds the same honor in European drag racing history.
A long weekend of brilliant cool Nostalgic racing, that gave way to some awesome moments this year and really great photographic opportunities out on track to bring to you.

THE MIX

With: Run What Ya Brung, Dirty Dozen, Gasser Circus, Outlaw Anglia, Supercharged Outlaws, a bumper field of entrants from the Wild Bunch,  Modified 100E Challenge and an evening Cacklefest on the strip.
The weather stayed kind with only a very short spell of rain ( yes we Brits talk a lot about our varied weather! ) and the racing was constant. So good to see some really great PB,s over the weekend. One specific set of consistent times from Joe Bond and the dedicated team of Nuthin II Fancy.

 

MOMENTS CAPTURED IN TIME

JOE BOND – NUTHIN II FANCY

Keeping with the ‘Up and Close’ feature,  news from the Nuthin II Fancy Team and Joe Bond.  It was a great weekend of racing for them with three tremendous runs from Joe, all in the 6’s and a time of 6.28 at 224mph to complete their brilliant weekend of racing.
