Dragstalgia has become a firm favourite for any drag racing fan, as for one weekend a year, we re-visit the wonder years of drag racing here at Santa Pod Raceway. The 2 wheeled fraternity always produces some truly iconic machines thanks to our good friends at the NSA, but this year really is one that motorbike fans will not want to miss. The NSA on track display alone boasts riders including John Hobbs (celebrating 50 years in racing incidentally), Jeff Byne, Pip Higham and Dave Clee, plus bikes that are respected as equally as the riders; The Hobbit, Olympus, Super Cyclops, Methamon, Shotgun, Orient Express and more!
Joining the historic drag racing static display this year, we’re very pleased to announce, is none other than one of the icon’s of British drag racing – the supercharged double-engined Pegasus of Ian Messenger and Derek Chinn. This historic Norton powered bike was the last bearing the renowned Pegasus name. A replica of the original team bike, with a V-twin Vincent motor, was built some years back by Derek Chinn. It can be seen on track this weekend ridden by Graham Martin, and it is aptly named “Pegasus Reborn”.
Soon to hit the Santa Pod Raceway 1320 is this stunning Nitro burning Nostalgia funny car of Bob Glassup.
The car appeared at the Santa Pod Raceway 2014 dragstalgia event as a roller but will be ready for strip duty this time.
The paint scene has been designed by Darren West of PRG and I must say that I personally love the clean design and colour.
Richard Walters is currently working on the body while the motor is being assembled by Dave Gibbons. I just can’t wait.
