Coming up...

In the US they have the Hot Rod Power Tour where over 2000 cars take part in a week long cruise visiting a different car show or drag strip each day.

This year some of the folk at the V8UK Forum decided to 'ave some of that and came up with the UK Power Tour, visiting 3 drag strips in 3 days over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Starting at 9am on Saturday at the Southern Counties Raceway 1/8th mile strip in Rye, Sussex before visiting the Yanks Weekend at Avon Park and Volks Power's Power Fest at York Off Road Centre Raceway. (Santa Pod is holding the FIA European Championships this weekend so is unable to host the Power Tour).

The rules are simple:
MOT & Tax
Street Tyres
Valid Insurance
1 Run at each strip qualifies you in the event
Fastest timing slip of the day to be handed in
No Bikes
No Trade Plates
No Rental Cars
No Support Vehicles
Pump Gas Only (If you can find it at a petrol station you can stick it in)
Equipment rules apply to street and strip

There are 2 classes: V8s and The Others.

Sunday at Avon Park is the Yanks Weekend (inc Gary's Picnic) and features Big Bucks Bracket Gamblers, Supercharged Outlaws, Outlaw Street, Wild Bunch Nostalgia Drag Racing, Honda Drag Series, European Outlaw Flat Four VWs, National Association of Supertwins, 8.50/9.50 Bike & ET Bike and the Tot Rod Drags.

Sunday Tickets are £15, kids under 16 go free.
