All show and no go at North Weald dragstrip

Paid a visit to North Weald airstrip today. Was amazed at how much better a venue it was compared to Santa Pod. Apart from the informality of the event which had an “access all areas” policy, it was also massive in variety.

Notable moments:
Ronnie and Gary’s 700+bhp monsters making mincemeat of hotrod dragsters. Pulling 11.05 on the 1/4 mile is an incredible feat and testimony to the performance of these cars.
The jet powered car that sounded like god giving the earth a hearty, cold, bitch slap.
The burnouts. My clothes reeked by the end of the day.
