Chairman of USAutomotive.co.uk, Stewart Bassett said, “USAutomotive has been involved with Ron Hope’s Rat Trap and Nick Davies’ Havoc for a number of years now and to be instrumental in bringing them together at Santa Pod Raceway for Dragstalgia is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It might well be the last time these two cars race side by side.”
“This year will be the 10th Anniversary of Dragstalgia,” said organizer James Forster. “Each year, Dragstalgia has grown until it is now Europe’s premier nostalgia drag racing event attracting more than 300 vintage race cars and thousands of spectators.”
The rivalry between these two legendary, nitro-powered AA/Fuel Altereds began at Santa Pod in 2016. The action then moved to the US where Havoc driver Nick Davies went on to win the Championship at the California Hot Rod Reunion. Dragstalgia will be the first time Nick and Ron have faced each other since then and this might be the last time as Havoc is being retired so that Nick can concentrate on the USAutomotive.co.uk – sponsored Pontiac Pro Mod. “It’s a race, well, four races actually, not to be missed.” Concluded Bassett.
In conjunction with the event sponsorship, USAutomotive.co.uk will be hosting competitions and giveaways so be sure to visit their Facebook page under USAutomotiveUK
