Our favourite links:

           Staffed by Tog, Simon Groves and Roger Gorringe; it is the home of European drag racing news and is a fabulous site full of super photography,  reporting & juicy gossip

                    If the NHRA are the pinnacle of world drag racing, then NHRA.COM should be considered 'Mecca'

                Dragracecentral is hosted by Bob Frey and is riveting for those who want to know the inside gossip from the US drag racing scene

        Rob Geiger's Radioactive racing news site - a superbly informative site with hot news from around the world - some of it, the NHRA would rather not us knowing about it! Excellent site.

                   A supremely informative on-line magazine. A must-see site

                    One of my truly favourite drag racing sites on the internet. Great articles, great pictures, great gossip, and good European coverage from Ivan Sansom & Rose Hughes. Just a great site!

              Bill Pratt's draglist web site includes not only all the de-facto drag racing records, speeds and marks going back to year dot, but oodles of extremely interesting articles. Great site!

            Personal web site of eurodragster principal 'Tog' - Andy Rogers. Terrific pictures & touching Roll of Honour. This now seems to redirect straight to Eurodragster.com, for some reason.

            Personal web site of ex-Eurodragster photographer Sharkman. After being unwell with M.E. for 3 years, only allowing a sporadic return to track, he has finally stepped away from track side

                                                                     photography to spend more time crewing with Stephen and Pat Talbot's race team as he completes his recovery from this awful ME. Our best wishes to Sharkman - AKA Tom Ward.

        The newly opened and very smart new website for 1998 FIA Top Fuel Champion Barry Sheavills. Here is hoping that he will be back on the FIA Top Fuel tour, soon.

                The racing  web site for Panic Racing supporting Fuel legend Gary Page and his Nitro Funny Car.

The new Bill Felstead/Jon Best NFAA Fuel Altered team. The car is based on Wendy Baker's Time Warp Altered with Nitro Big Block Chevy power. Jon blew everyone away with a licensing run of

                                                                    6.71 seconds and 209mph at SCR, shutting up the doubters good and proper. He ran a 7.00/200 mph pass on a smokey run at the Euro Finals at Santa Pod, underpinning the performance of the car

                                                                    with very little budget. Jon, Bill, Johnny and  the whole team should be delighted at their results and we look forward to their next track visit. Do you realise the Chevy block is Iron, it has a standard

                                                                    STREET crankshaft and that the cylinder heads are nearly as old as Jon? Unbelievable!

www.basslinetopfuel.com/                  Jon Best's super web site. He's a young 'un that deserves every success. He's built his own Nostalgia Top Fuel car out of his own pocket and made it on track in '08.  The best of luck, Jon!

    The newly opened web site of veteran photo-journalist and ultra wise-wag, Roger Gorringe. He is one of the most globally recognised and respected photographers in the sport of drag racing and it is

http://richardsmith.fotopic.net/        What a pleasure it was to meet  young Richard at my return to York Raceway after 20 years! I had seen his pictures extensively linked to York and jolly good they are too, but I never realised

                                                                      he isn't a dedicated photographer - no - he takes his pictures in between his Marshalling duties! Top Man!

NFAA Altered driver Joe Bond is a smashing lad and supremely competent at piloting the altered down into the low 7 second zone. With new motor parts on the horizon, a 6 second pass beckons for
