What a guy, what a drag racer, putting the fans, crew and car before his personal problems.
Do you have an update Stu - was worrying to see him getting in the ambulance :(

I called today to see how Rich is getting on. He's still in hospital with a slight infection on a antibiotic drip and comfortable. Should be home in a couple of days.

Nice touch to see that James Forster on Eurodragster has thanked Jon for all the publicity this site has generated for Dragstalgia.

I thought I would spend a hour or two looking through my images and try to pick out a few of my favorite cars/bikes/races from the meeting but this has proved impossible as there were so many things I loved so here are around 20 odd for now.

Driver of the weekend by none Nick Davies.

The beast and by cropping the image and looking a little harder with reviews what the drive thought of it.
