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

Wow, there's loads of info there and some pictures I have never seen of the car before. Thanks for posting the link. I'll definitely need to go to Sec Savers to read it all :lol:

The Plan-X slingshot went to Gary Kay after Bill and Jon had it. He turned it into a two piece car but sold it to a Swedish guy without running it.

Back to the thread one of Norm's best. Am trying desperately to get it back on the track for Dragstalgia.
Watch this space.
Sound interesting Tim, what's the chances then?
Did this happen Tim?, asking as I saw 'Spiderman' on the York webcam today.

Julian and Roy have been working on the car for a while and it did run at York Herb.
Roy had a couple of runs, not bad at 74 Years old and 25 since he last drove it.
Last run of the day they ran 9.5.

Thanks for the info Jon.
Good for Roy, glad to see he's got the altered back on the track. I remember the first day he turned up at the Pod with it, early 80's, along with the short wheelbase mini tow car, had a few typical new car 'bugs', so we gave them a hand, ably assisted by 'young' Julian, who was knee high to a grass hopper at the time, s**t that's 30 years ago!!
