No US guests at this moment in time i'm afraid but there are plenty of stars coming from around Europe, the entry list will go live as soon as we get a few entries in each class - it's not too far away :)

Im still battling to try and make it after doing engine damage. Ill be back but not sure if it will be in time for this years meeting. Would be excellant if we could have a FED shootout over the next couple of years. Ive spoken to one other guy who is up for it, and im sure more would follow quickly. I think there is a fair chance of their being 6 or 7 really quick fed's that could run in the class around in time for Dragstalgia - im guessing that have the capability to run in the 7's. Maybe even one or two more.

Hi Guys,
Just a reminder to anyone wanting to take part in the Saturday & Sunday RWYB at Dragstalgia, you must have applied for a space by Friday 29th May. Spaces will become available to those successful applications on Monday 1st of June and we already have more applications than spaces so we will sell out instantly.

Cheers

Some very exciting news from James 8)

2 Wheeled royalty comes to Dragstalgia on the 10th-12th July!
Dragstalgia has become a firm favourite for any drag racing fan, as for one weekend a year, we re-visit the wonder years of drag racing here at Santa Pod Raceway. The 2 wheeled fraternity always produces some truly iconic machines thanks to our good friends at the NSA, but this year really is one that motorbike fans will not want to miss. The NSA on track display alone boasts riders including John Hobbs (celebrating 50 years in racing incidentally), Jeff Byne, Pip Higham and Dave Clee, plus bikes that are respected as equally as the riders; The Hobbit, Olympus, Super Cyclops, Methamon, Shotgun, Orient Express and more!

Joining the historic drag racing static display this year, we’re very pleased to announce, is none other than one of the icon’s of British drag racing - the supercharged double-engined Pegasus of Ian Messenger and Derek Chinn. This historic Norton powered bike was the last bearing the renowned Pegasus name. A replica of the original team bike, with a V-twin Vincent motor, was built some years back by Derek Chinn. It can be seen on track this weekend ridden by Graham Martin, and it is aptly named “Pegasus Reborn”.
Pegasus, however, is not the only bike that will be leaving the National Motorcycle Museum for this weekend, as the museum are also loaning us TC Christenson’s incredible Hogslayer, a bike that was looked up to by probably all bike racers of it’s time! This double-engined Norton dominated at drag strips around the US in the 70’s as well as making some guest appearances in the UK and becoming the first bike to run below 9 seconds in Europe. We are honoured to have this piece of drag racing royalty at Dragstalgia this year and can’t thank our friends at the National Motorcycle Museum enough for making this display possible!
