At the time of writing, the 2017 Brighton Speed Trials are only a matter of days away.

Although its not actually Drag Racing (well, it did first run in 1905!!), it is a 1/4 mile standing start, and the top bikes (modern) can reach the 160mph mark. There’s usually a good variety of machines (cars and bikes), with the earliest dating from around the 1920's, all running along the famous seafront Madeira Drive.

Here are some photos from a previous running as a poss tempter..............

nice pics, do you know what times the green Pop was running?
Here's a link to the results ... esults.pdf

According to the results, the Pop was running in the Handicap Class, and this looks like they have 1 practice run, and only 1 timed run.
Page 2, position 36 for practice - 14.06 at 69mph
Page 8, position 21 for timed - 12.6 at 107mph
