NSRA Nostalgia Nationals

12-13 May 2018, SANTA POD RACEWAY

Nostalgia NationalsOrganised by the NSRA in conjunction with Santa Pod Raceway, a 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, and the Gasser Circus!

Wild Bunch – slingshots and altereds
Outlaw Anglia – Ford Pops and Anglias
Gasser Circus – High riding gassers
Supercharged Outlaws – Supercharged dragsters, altereds and door slammers.
Additional trophies for the quickest ET in the above classes plus Quickest Flathead.

Quick Six – These are trophies awarded by the NSRA committee. The cars don’t have to be the shiniest or prettiest, they certainly don’t have to be the quickest but they are judged to have been representative of the ‘Spirit of the Event’. The only criteria is that they must have been put through their paces on the quarter mile at some point over the weekend.

Put your pride and joy on display! It’s free to enter, just turn up and register on the day. Space is limited and the paddock fills up quickly so be sure to arrive early.

Take your car or motorcycle out on the famous quarter-mile dragstrip and test it’s performance limits in a safe and legal environment. Open to pre-1973’s vehicles only, Retro, Classic, Hot Rod and American cars (sorry, no modern cars or bikes).
Please note that at this event, helmets are compulsory for all participants. Neck padding and arm restraints are recommended. Full RWYB details at www.RWYB.com. Unlimited runs for £25 per day Sign-on, Fri, Sat & Sun.

Roger Goring’s state of the art Ford Mustang bodied Jet car is one of only 3 centre drive Jet Funny cars in the world and the only one outside of the USA!
