Hi folks

Here is more info on the amazing news that, as announced at Santa Pod at Dragstalgia on Friday 12th July, our very own 'Wild Bunch Nostalgia Drag Racing' club has been chosen to be inducted in to the prestigious 'British Drag Racing Hall of Fame' as one of the 2019 inductees!!

This is indeed a huge honour and we are all very grateful to Stu Bradbury and the board of selectors for nominating us for this incredible award. This is such a thrill and we are all over the moon to hear this! Wow!

Many Congratulations to every single Wild Bunch member, past and present, as this is a joint award to the whole club :-)

It was very special that at Dragstalgia we were able to gather a group of over 50 Wild Bunch members to hear the surprise announcement. We were thrilled that co-founder Roy Wilding and longtime chairman Chris Hartnell were present, as well as several members who have been with the club for around 25 years! A very special moment to celebrat our club's history!
