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 good news is that if you want to relive the complete event it has been encapsulated on a 90 minute DVD supported by the special 16 page A4 size Souvenir Programme.
Although many fantastic 'still' photographs of the event have been published it is impossible for photographers to capture everything that happened during the evening's presentation. That's where the video comes in. From its unique opening sound of the 1961 Allard Chrysler dragster firing up and the new electronic theme music produced by the Essex based Hipnotic Jazz, you know this is going to be different.
Produced by AMP Audio Solutions, all the presentations are shown along with the accompanying cheers, tears and standing ovations. This photo is a screen shot taken from the video showing Don Garlits kissing his late wife's name on the Lucas Oil Global Achievement Award that will always have the words 'In memory of Pat Garlits' engraved on it whenever it is awarded. Only the video has captured this. Her Royal Highness Princess Katarina of Yugoslavia and Serbia presented the award.
The five BDRHoF Inductee presentations and speeches are included as are those of the two Sydney Allard Media Award recipients. There is even a Don Garlits tribute film. It is special edit of footage covering 50 years of the NHRA Nationals made by Dean Papadeas who gave permission for it to be used at the Gala Dinner.

While stocks last the DVD can be purchased along with the special 16 page Souvenir Programme of the event. In full colour, the publication was sponsored by Custom Car Magazine and the front cover reflected the look of early copies of the publication. It features full details of all inductee citations - Gerry Belton, Russ Carpenter, Don Garlits, Dennis Norman and John Whitmore - plus the other awards presented on this unforgettable night.
