The NSRA Joins Sponsors of BDRHoF Celebration Gala Awards Dinner

NSRA logo new ColWith a substantial four figure sum, the National Street Rod Association UK (NSRA) has joined the list of those sponsoring the prestigious 2014 British Drag Racing Hall of Fame (BDRHoF) Celebration Gala Awards Dinner at the Savill Court Hotel, Windsor Great Park on November 22nd 2014. Before the formation of the NSRA, hot rod enthusiasts tended to be organized as a Division of one of the two main drag racing clubs. The NSRA grew out of the National Drag Racing Club (NDRC) Roadster Register with the inaugural meeting being held at the Wheatsheaf Public House on the Reigate Road in Surrey in 1972.




It is now a National organization for hot-rodders, each year organizing two of the UK’s largest hot rod show weekends, plus two major auto parts swap meets, and in conjunction with Shakespeare County Raceway and Santa Pod Raceway, is involved with three nostalgia drag racing event weekends.

For the NSRA’s 40th Anniversary in 2012, NSRA ‘Street Gasser’ magazine editor Nick Brooke-Langham set about the massive task of recording the history of the NSRA in book form. The resulting 360-page publication – Keeping the Dream Alive – was issued to all NSRA members free of charge to recognize the anniversary year. Jason Hollamby of the NSRA said


“We have recently been working with the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame linked to our involvement in the Dragstalgia Meet at Santa Pod. We really admire what they are doing and the way they go about it. The NSRA Hall of Fame was established in 2012 as part of the NSRA’s 40th anniversary with the aim to recognize significant contributions or achievements from people or vehicles within the hobby, so there is much synergy between our two organizations – both of which are truly national bodies. We are keen to develop this obvious common ground and our sponsorship of this special event is hopefully just the start of a long term relationship”.


Stu with Clive Skilton.BDRHoF Chairman Stu Bradbury said, “One of the most costly and important requirements for a successful Awards Event is installing the right Audio Visual support. Julian Parsons and AMP Audio Solutions will be providing this for the Gala Dinner. Most of you will know Julian from Nitro FM at Santa Pod. The not insubstantial costs are being sponsored by the NSRA this year and we offer our sincere thanks.

Working with the NSRA to develop Dragstalgia has been a pleasure. Drag racing is the traditional hot-rodder’s sport and hot-rodding is the very foundation of drag racing. Most drag racing pioneers are hot-rodders at heart – including me”.
