Although not strictly drag bikes, here are some galleries courtesy of ESA Photos from 2012-2017 taken at various sprints including the Brighton Speed Trials.

The Brighton Speed Trials is organised by The Brighton and Hove Motor Club, who kindly invite the VMCC Sprint Section to sort out the motorcycle side of things.

Thorney Island was a VMCC Sprint Section event, and the Sprint Section also sorted the bikes for the demo runs at the VMCC’s Festival of 1000 bikes. ... Eq75IxKn44

Here are a few photos I snapped from the Brighton Speed Trials (2016 and 2017), where it’s not uncommon to see some historic/nostalgia drag bikes be exercised along the famous Madeira Drive.

In-the-wings are a couple of Triumphs, both running 4” slicks, which it’s hoped will at Brighton in 2018.
One’s a 'new build', blown, reverse-head Triumph 750 (the big-brother to the 500 Morado Triumph in the photos).
The other’s a restored blown 650 Triumph (from early/mid 70’s) which had been languishing for many a year.
