UKDRN website and forum updates.

As regular visitors will see the ukdrn.co.uk forum has had a big facelift today.

The other style was out of date and many of the features weren’t working and not manageable any more

I also wanted better social media integration and a cleaner and more professional look.
This new style also has many new features including multiple file uploads so you can add more than one picture at a time and better resizing of images.

At the footer of the forum you can now see the latest posts and there is also a twitter feed and a list of links.
It might take a little time to get used to but I’m confident you’re all up for the task.

Dragstalgia – What a day and this was only the practice.

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

With only a week to go before the biggest nostalgia drag racing event ever to be held in the UK I thought it would be cool to ask Rat Trap Racing’s Brian Hope a few questions.

UKDRN back online

MC-02I’m pleased to say that after all the problems the website has suffered in recent times the ukdrn.co.uk website and the forum are up and running again.
The website should now be running on a quicker and more stable server.
There might be a few small problems to iron out but hopefully everything will be okay.
I will start work on updates etc in a week or so.
I hope you will continue to support our quite modest but very cool website :-)
Thanks
Jon
