British Drag Racing Hall of Fame: Dragstalgia Grand Auction & Sale of artworks, artefacts, memorabilia
Santa Pod Raceway
10 & 11 July 2021
The British Drag Racing Hall of Fame is pleased to announce a Dragstalgia Grand Auction & Sale of artworks, artefacts and memorabilia generously donated to the organisation to assist in the raising of essential funds. Separate silent auctions take place on Saturday and Sunday in the Hall of Fame marquee situated in the pits near the grandstand.
Each day’s auction will run from 10am to 4pm. Winning bids will be announced at 4.15pm with payments and collections due by 5pm.
Pride of place in Saturday’s auction must go to an original painting created and presented by the distinguished motorsport artist, Paul Whitehouse. Since Dragstalgia last took place in 2019 we have lost two of the sport’s significant individuals: Top Fuel and Funny Car legend Dennis Priddle died in May and Stu Bradbury, Founding Chairman of the Hall of Fame and formerly Chief Starter at Santa Pod, died a year ago this Dragstalgia weekend. Paul Whitehouse’s painting depicts one of Dennis’s most renowned entries, the John Woolfe Racing Monza Funny Car, guided back to the line by the figure of Stu.
Furthermore, Paul has donated 25 limited-edition prints of his recent ‘Gladiator’ painting, depicting Bootsie’s Vega-bodied Funny Car, for sale in the Hall of Fame marquee.
In addition, a rich array of memorabilia kindly provided by donors at home and in the United States will be available for auction and for sale. Items include models, prints, posters, books, t-shirts and engine components, many signed by stars such as Tommy Ivo, Art Chrisman, Don Prudhomme and ‘Rat Trap’ Ron Hope.
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
