Went down to watch the drag race finals today. Haven't been for quite a few years. The weather started off quite overcast but by 2pm the sun was beating down. Have ended up with rather red arms and ears!
Thankfully only one incident today - the third race of the day and one of the drivers lost control, swerved over into the next lane and slammed into the wall before coming to a halt on his roof. He was lucky to walk away from it. I actually got it on video and as soon as I can work out how to get it off my phone I'll post it up here.
Here are my photos:
In the coupe on the way down
The racing started
Terry Grant putting on an excellent driving display
'The Risk Club' showing everyone their bike skills
Monster trucks crushing things and jumping stuff
The bikes came out for a bit
Then the jet car made an appearance
There was even a fly-by
Went for a walk round the pits too
And also walked up the length of the strip from start to finish to get some good shots of everything inbetween
Spotted this on the way out too
Fantastic day out. Already looking to go again for the September event!
