Are there any drag racers still active out there? I remember...late sixties it must have been (how many people can honestly say that?) there used to be a lot of it about. We had great fun making piano-wire rail dragsters and funny cars with chopped-up Airfix saloon bodies, then spearing them into the skirting boards. We set up a great strip at our school summer fete (!) once, and had a 'run what you brung' event. Blimey... in those days people really would turn up at school fetes with cars expecting there to be some sort of track to race on. If I'm right, we had an isolated run-off with reversed polarity to stop the runaways. Anyway- clubs used to have drag strips beside or behind the main circuit... do they still? I don't get out much myself.
