UK Drag Race Pics 1970s

I took these pictures way back in the seventies at Englands first drag strip
Santa Pod. Santa to reflect the first US strip Santa Ana and Pod from Poddington the village nearby.Itīs an old US base used during the 2nd WW.
My camera was a Praktica reflex with 50 and 200mm lenses, the weather and spectator situation was usually against me. The guy who put them up on the web had to scan all the slides and do a little research as I did date the boxes of slides but not the names of cars or drivers.

70s pics

Thanks malc!

Those are great photos of the history of our sport and it is great of you to share them with the rest of us motor heads. I especially liked the close up shots of the engines and all of those different body styles. The short wheelbase cars look like a hand-full to drive, especially that straight 6 t-bucket type car - it must only be about 6 feet long!

What a great collection, Malc. I've only made it through the altereds so far but what memories these pics bring back. You captured a lot of what drag racing was all about back then. I'm giving it a 5 star rating and I've still got 90% of it to go back and look at.

I was lucky enough to find someone to put them up, the original slides are still packaged as they came back from him, in the garage.
Hopefully he will post the rest one day.
Thanks for the positive response.
