The trustees of the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame Benevolent Fund have made the donation of a patient monitoring device to Santa Pod Raceway. The G3H Portable Patient Monitor is battery powered and can easily be carried around. It is suitable for use in bedside monitoring in medical centres or hospitals and can print out graphs of patient readings.
Stuart Bradbury, Chair of the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame and Trustee of the BDRHOF Benevolent Fund, said 'This donation will be directly for the benefit of racers and of fans at Santa Pod Raceway and we hope it can help save lives at the track'.
Keith Bartlett, Santa Pod owner and CEO of Trakbak Racing Ltd, said 'We at Santa Pod Raceway are very grateful to the BDRHOF Benevolent Fund for their generosity in making this direct donation to our medical services'.
There will be a start line presentation to mark the donation at lunchtime on Saturday 25th May at the Main Event, conditions permitting.
The BDRHOF Benevolent Fund will again be hosting a signing session at Dragstalgia on 13 and 14 July 2019 at which legends of the sport over the last 50 years, including legendary Funny Car owner and crew chief Roland Leong, will be present to sign autographs and chat to fans.
