The British Drag Racing Hall of Fame is pleased to announce its second annual Dragstalgia Grand Auction. The silent auction takes place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th July in the Hall of Fame marquee situated in the pits near the grandstand and features a wealth of artefacts and artworks generously donated to help in the raising of essential funds.
An array of items from the USA has been collected by Tony Thacker. Major donations from the home front include a Paul Whitehouse painting – BDRHoF member Dennis Priddle’s Olavi Knuutinen Monza – and a No.1 Limited Edition framed print of Pegasus donated by Ian Messenger. Either might become the star auction lot, or could both be trumped by a signed John Force poster from across the pond? There are models donated by the late Kevin Cresale’s family, Lucas Oil 7707 Bonneville merchandise from Geoff Stilwell, a fuel jug and goodies from VP Racing Fuels, a rather special blower belt and jacket given by Andy Willsheer, an autographed edition of Keith Lee’s new book John Hobbs and the Age of the Twins, a Venom Rod Clock made by Syd McDonald, donations from Anita Mäkelä plus a host of books, posters, T-shirts and crew shirts, signed race parts, limited-edition and signed prints – too many items to list individually. And there’ll be plenty more on general sale too.
The Hall of Fame will be pleased to welcome visitors to view and place bids for auction items, and to buy sale items, from 10am each day.
The Dragstalgia Grand Auction takes place with the kind permission of Santa Pod Raceway.
The Hall of Fame is indebted to all who have so kindly donated items.
