National Hotrod Reunion 2016
It hardly seems like 12 months since we were last at the National Hotrod Reunion at York Raceway…
The weekend started off fairly slowly with a few rounds of RWYB, but we hadn’t been down on the start line for too long when Voodoo Tuesday and Lola Bardou arrived for our traditional walk around the pits – the racers seem to be getting into the spirit of it more and more each year!
By the time we got back onto the start line, the racing had well and truly warmed up – we got back just in time to see round 1 of Robin Read’s nitro dragster take on Julian Webb’s jet dragster, a battle that Robin would eventually win 2-1
Sunday evening played host to the usual cacklefest and BBQ in memory of Kasey.
This year, the weather managed to play ball for both days, if anything Monday was even busier!! It was a pleasure to see both Bryan Whitfield’s “Henry Hirise” gasser & Mark Flavell’s “Steel River Hot Rod” funny car take to the track. We were also allowed to head down past the finish line for the first time, to get some parachute photos (Big thanks to Drakie at Drakies Americans for organising that!).
This is just a selection of my favourite images. If you’re looking for specific photos and can’t see them here, please try our Facebook page for the full gallery.
We’ve also compiled a list of every car that’s covered the quarter mile in 8.99 seconds or less since we started going back in 2007, you can take a look here.
