    Brings back a lot of old memories. I liked the channeled but unchopped T coupe (#66). Mostly British plates so I'm guessing it was in England.

  3. You are correct,Santa Pod Raceway, located in Podington, Bedfordshire, England, is Europe's first permanent drag racing venue for 1/4 and 1/8 mile racing. It was built on a disused Second World War air base, (RAF Podington), once used by the 92nd Bomber Group. HRP

    I hear (or read) the name "Santa Pod" and immediately flash back to the career ending
    accident of top fuel driver Darrell Gwynn in 1990.

    That's a great video, very well done and thanks to the producer for not ruining it with a musical sound track other than those engines! I've been to two TROGS and seen numerous Pendine Sands videos and this appears to be better than both! Thanks for posting it Danny.

    I had the honor of knowing a B-17 pilot that was in the 92nd Bomb Group, and flew I think he said like 32 missions out of Podington. Some great stories-I had great respect for the man.

    That’s awesome. The hemi runs 14.8 at 89 mph. Sounds like it’s going 140

    Glad you like the film, folks. For our first full on drag meet it was a great success. If anyone is in the UK over the weekend of May 5th & 6th, we’ll be doing it all over again.

  24. I watched the video again today and realized I was watching Dean Lowe's old roadster pickup still doing what it did back in the early 60's.

    I believe it's owned by Steve Hill of Brighton, England. HRP
     
  25. Only One? Great Vid.

    It is owned by Steve Hill, and we couldn't resist having it as the poster car for this year.
