heres some rare Snetterton cine footage of roger sinclair in his transverse ford v8 powered dragster chain reaction, it was chain driven using various cogs/parts from combines etc!! i am guessing it is 76 as it was one of the superdrag meets which i think were all in 76, april 16th or july 18th, can anyone confirm? film also shows other chelmsford drag team members steve young & roy cockerill who was the dragster driver at the time & the vauxhall push car owner. i this was kindly loaned to me by ken robbins who may or may not have filmed it?...

great bit of film Mark, and yes it is '76 as it has a rare shot of Roger Cracknell in Highwayman which was the ex-Stagecoach Austin Ruby.
