15th-17th September 2017
Organised by the NSRA and Shakespeare County Raceway, another hot rod meet rolled up into a weekend of nostalgia style drag racing. Run what ya brung for pre-1973 cars. Hot rods, customs, Outlaw Anglias, dragsters, altereds, the Gasser Circus, and the flathead meltdown!
Shakespeare County Raceway
Long Marston Airfield
Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 8LL
Where else can you expect to see period Flathead roadsters and coupes, 200 mph blown methanol injected hot rods, ground thumping dragsters, big blocked Fiats and classic blown Willys Coupes? At the Original Hot Rod Drags of course!
Adding spice to the mix are the high riding gassers known as the Gasser Circus featuring high riding ‘door cars’ from the 40s, 50s and 60s. Along for the ride will be the Custom Car magazine supported Flathead Meltdown Challenge where side valve engines still reign supreme and last, but certainly no means least, the full on power from the awesome Outlaw Anglia class will be here to entertain in a class dedicated to Dagenham’s finest ‘sit up and beg’ Anglias, Populars, Prefects and Fordsons.
Within the ranks of the nostalgia world expect to see out and out racers in the Wild Bunch class; a class which runs front engined ‘slingshot’ dragster and altereds where straight six Jaguars rub shoulders with Buick ‘nailheads’ as well as all kinds of Fords, Chryslers and of course Chevy V8’s. The Outlaw Flat Four VW’s will be looking for some more wheels up action with their classic VW gassers.
