Drag Racing

In the 70’s and 80’s we were heavily involved in organising drag racing. Over the winter of 79 / 80 our group developed Long Marston Airfield into permanent facility with new tarmac, armco crash barriers and the like. It is the best part of 30 years since we were last there or even at a drag race but my brother, Duncan, is still involved crewing for the Moor family. Things have moved on a lot in that time and we had a great weeked. Now they call the place Shakespeare County Raceway or “Shakey” and it is touching to see that the strip is named Wigmore Way in honour of our late freind Alan who did so much for UK drag racing.
