It may be eleven months away but the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame (BDRHoF) has just announced the date and venue for its 2015 Gala Awards Dinner. After the successful 2014 event it will be no surprise that the Savill Court Hotel in Windsor Great Park has been chosen again and the date is Saturday November 21st. Better put it in your diary now.
BDRHoF Chairman Stu Bradbury said,
“I intend that our next BDRHoF induction ceremony will be just as spectacular as the fabulous 2014 event. Drag Racing now has a platform to entertain customers and potential sponsors in an atmosphere more suited to something they would expect from people who are serious about what they do. 2014 guest Donna Garlits noted several ideas to include in their own International Drag Racing Hall of Fame Awards evening held in Ocala, Florida during March. For the first time, the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame will be represented by members of the BDRHoF Management Group who have been invited as VIP guests. What a great honour”.
The Management Group also announced that Geoff Stilwell is joining the Management Board. In truth this just makes the current situation official because he has been playing an important role in developing the BDRHoF and in particular the Gala Dinner
Keith Pilling has very kindly sent me some very interesting information about two pieces of UK drag racing history
Those who attended the 2014 British Drag Racing Hall of Fame (BDRHoF) Gala Awards Dinner in November will have many great memories of a fantastic evening. The complete evening was encapsulated in the special 16 page A4 size Souvenir Programme that all those present received as part of their table pack.
In full colour, the publication was sponsored by Custom Car Magazine and the front cover reflected the look of early copies of the publication. Designed by Power Race Graphics it features full details of all inductee citations and the other awards presented on this unforgettable night.
The BDRHoF is pleased to announce that a limited number of copies are now available for sale to those not able to attend the event.
It is priced at £10.00 per copy plus postage and packing. Full details are available from BritishDRHOF@aol.com
