This colorful and entertaining book, the first comprehensive history of drag racing in the UK, is a must for all fans of this exciting sport. Dramatically illustrated, it traces the roots of drag racing from its UK sprinting and American speed trial and hot-rodding origins in the early 1900s, moving on to the landmark opening of Santa Pod in 1966, through the boom periods of the 1970s and 1980s, and finishing with the sport’s rejuvenation in recent years. Meticulously researched, this book features many historic photographs and a wealth of first-hand memories from the leading protagonists.
Brian Taylor first saw drag racing at the 1965 Drag Fest at Blackbushe and has been hooked ever since. He commentated at Santa Pod, chaired the British Drag Racing and Hot Rod Association, and is still closely involved in the sport. He lives in Sidmouth, Devon.
