Dragging you back to the way we were – Dragstalgia 2017

Image:Gasoline MagazineIn recent years, Dragstalgia has become a truly International event and the 2017 event on the 14th-16th July is no exception. Whilst in 2016 the stars of the show were the fuel altered’s from the USA, this year’s line-up sees an influx of entries from a little closer to home; Scandinavia. The bulk of the guest entries are making the 1,000+ mile journey from Sweden but you’ll also find racers from Norway, France, Holland, Italy and beyond throughout the entry list.

One of the main classes to benefit from our overseas guests is the Slingshot Showdown; a heads up class for front engine dragsters capable of completing the ¼ mile in less than 8.50 seconds meaning high octane, exciting racing is guaranteed. In this, only the classes 2nd year of running at Dragstalgia, we have no less than 4 cars from Sweden and another from Norway coming to take the challenge to our home grown heroes. Joe Bond is likely to remain the favourite following his dominant victory at the 2016 event with a whole host of impressive 6 second passes but if he’s going to lift the trophy again, he’ll certainly have to work for it!

The other class with a significant injection of Swedish machinery is the Gasser Circus. The UK Gasser Circus are a highlight of Dragstalgia in their own right but a showdown with our Scandinavian guests really is a mouth-watering prospect. Sweden will be represented by “The Rattler” Bel Air, “Dogcatcher” Crown Victoria, “Super Nova” and the “Sharp Teeth” Barracuda to take on the likes of the “Mighty Mouse” Ford Pop, “Gold Rush” 41 Ford, “Honky Tonkin 1 & 2” the Bel Air & Nova and many more.
