Not only did Tommy Ivo and Don Garlits lay down huge amounts of rubber in 1964 at the drag festivals they also laid down the foundations of the sport here in the UK.
Today we got a taste of what we’ve been looking forward to ever since it was announced months ago and that was when the fuel altered’s of Rat Trap and Pure Hell from the USA took to the Santa Pod blacktop for a couple of checkout pass and didn’t disappoint.
Both cars sounded awesome on the burnouts and weaved
down the 1320 with Brian Hope in Pure Hell clocking 204mph and that’s just in practice.
This meeting has the feel of the “Old Days” we talk about so much with that added American ingredient that we love and remember so get to Santa Pod tomorrow and experience this for yourself because it’s gonna be great
