It seems to have taken forever but Mike Collins' 2016 FIA Top Fuel review has finally crossed the stripe... sit back and enjoy some good ol' NitroNostalgia from the Pod, and Mike's take on last year's epic racing on the FIA tour...

After 50 years, a photo of the Allard-Chrysler at the Crystal Palace track.

I was there - the first time I'd seen dragsters running although I'd been "wasting my pocket money on "Hot Rod"" (according to Dad) since the age of 11. The Allard supercharged Anglia was there but seemed to spend the day scattering the paddock rather than making a run. Commuter attempted a run (one of first outings) but electronic gremlins prevented this.

The big Allard dragster was worth the entrance fee alone, smokey fast runs . Probably about 200 yards full power along the start-finish straight and then a scrabble to stop before the first corner !!! Happy days.
