Sadly I missed Peter Crane's 5, but I did see Don Garlits. He was a real boyhood hero, and I simply couldn't believe it when I was standing in the pits beside him as he worked on his rail. Oh happy days!

Well, that last post was certainly interesting.... So, going back to a bit more history on British Drag Racing, was anyone else at Santa Pod to see Peter Crane make the first 5 second pass in Stormbringer (against the truly legendary Don Garlits)? What a day that was. Then you have the first 4 second pass from Barry Sheavills some 20 odd years later. Peter Crane at 5.97 and Barry at 4.97. Spooky eh?

Yes, I agree, it's deathly silent. I assume everyone is waiting for the season to start before they drown us in a torrent of posts!

It's a bit quiet in here, isn't it. Ho hum. Who has got some interesting news or something to say. I took a walk out of my front door today and into my garage. There lies, beneath the sheets, Nosferatu himself. I caressed his dark body, gently touched his enourmous blower and absorbed his odour through every pore of my skin. Does that make me gay?

Santa Pod remains the strip that has had the quickest ever 1/4 mile pass on the planet. Sammy Miller must have had gahoonies the size of Nosferatus' blower to pilot that machine.

This weekend the team are poised to strike and begin the final touches to Nosferatu so he is ready to appear in all his glory (praise be to the dark master) for the Easter Thunderball. Entry form is in the post.

Saw Vanishing Point run a few times. Remember it like yesterday. It was the silence on the line, just crouched there, a few sinister wisps of steam, then BANG, Gone... Unbelievable.

Mysterious, I will have to show you the Santa Pod programme that I had signed by the late great Sammy Miller. One of my greatest treasures. I keep it taped inside one of the big bells in the tower for safety.

Greetings Mrs Fearless - good to hear from you & keep up the good work! When are you back? In time for first meeting I hope?
I believe that Blown A engines will not have to suffer silencers being fitted. Just imagine 8 x Cherry Bombs fitted to our headers! Besides, the force would blow them off into the crowd killing squads of spectators!
I was there in the 80's and saw the Great Sammy Miller several times including his world record holding runs. Awesome and never to be repeated -sadly... This man truly was extraordinary and has forever left a great impression on me and others who saw it at the time. Mind blowing. He is a legend.

Greetings
My fellow clan.
I hear told that progress is moving at excellent pace there in my home land.
I am longing to be back in the crypt again, this Chinese mausoleum are ok for a visit but I prefer my own coffin better.
Whilst I am here in these foreign lands, I take time to spread the word about our dark lord. So be sure in the knowledge that our reputation is spreading though out the word.
I look forward to reuniting with the team on my return.

Yes, the noise is all part of the experience. Whenever people have asked me "what's it like", the best analogy I can come up with is like a nuclear bomb going off in your trousers - particularly when a pair of nitro cars leave the line on full chat - you simply have to be there. I feel we are lucky with our generation to have witnessed drag racing in it's purest form, in 25 years it will be nothing like it is now - 1,000ft racing is bad enough. Anyone see Sammy Miller in his rocket cars in the 80's? Now THAT was something to see - jet cars are all well and good, but rockets... mad as a fish and totally unforgetable. I still see him sometimes, he is great friends with Elvis.
