Do you own or know the whereabouts of a piece of UK Drag Racing History or just want info on a particular machine.

This is why this website helps ID cars and parts through old memories or photos.
We did have RAC log books later on for competition events but nowadays you have to have a chassis plate with details for SFI certification and recert.

Mind you alot of older cars you wouldnt want to put your name on, my first tube chassis I built included. I like to think of it as learning and progression.?

Obviously not up with current regs. My old chassis never had a tag on it (that I ever found, anyhow), but as it had all the bodywork, etc, it wasn't hard to I.D., and most knew it at the time. Thought there SHOULD have been something like that, but as you point out, there now is.

Been scanning through a whole heap of cars I thought might have been this many look 'similar', but nothing positive. Can't have been too many cars that were painted that colour (even once off the race circuit), so it is a surprise no-one has as yet I.D.'d the thing. In the thread, that rear-end of a car, with yellow bodywork.....bugging me, it looks very familiar, but can't place it. Still......not a lot else to do at times, trawl some more photos.

Thing to remember is anything can be modified and over the years possibly has been. so in this case the cage is different but does the rest of it look right? As you say John, we need fresh eyes to have a closer look.

Theres not much that can be added, here on the forum, but life around Andy was an experience, for sure. He was living in Florida, is anyone in touch with him?
