Speed Demon Time Travels

Bob Hawkins is now the new owner of Vic Hammonds tasty Speed Demon dragster.
David Williams of Wild Bunch fame has made up some nice new tin work for the car which will be the same as the Time Traveller car.
Bob plans to run some Wild Bunch and Super Pro next year starting at Easter as the car is now MSA eligible. They are also hoping to do some match racing and flame burns at Hockenheim.
I’m happy that Bob has got the car as it’s one of the niecest FED this side of the pond and I can’t wait to see it out next season.

Andrew has also kindly promised to keep ukdrn updated of news on the return
