She said Yes!


It’s certainly been a busy few months for us!  Since the last meeting the car has been stripped down and put on a major diet (the same can’t be said for the driver though!).  Every spare bracket has been cut off and every component has been made as light as possible in the hunt to get the car as close to the magic 700kg as possible.

Martin Kingston's first album of photos now in the Gallery.  Drivers in all categories were voted for by their fellow drivers, fans, officials, teams and sponsors from all over the world through our website and our Facebook pages.  Thank you to everyone who took the trouble to recognise all the effort and skill on display this last twelve months in National Hot Rod racing, and to Tracy Killick who administered the poll.


National Hot Rod racing’s governing body, the NHRPA, is introducing a number of measures for 2017 to enhance and improve our spectators, fans and racers’ experience of a race meeting.   The prime change is that the steward’s decision on a race result, and any penalties, on the day, will be final.  Any driver disputing any verdict will retain the right to protest only against any penalty points issued, or against any ban which may ensue.  The result as declared by the steward will however, once confirmed and announced, be final.
