Main Event 2018, the’Big Go’

Time to leave the wildlife alone for awhile and indulge in my other passion.  In warm sunny weather we headed out to the east midlands and Santa Pod Raceway for a day of top notch drag racing, the second qualifying session for the first round of the FIA European drag racing series.  Thunderous 10,000 bhp 300mph fire breathing Top Fuel dragsters and more.  Check out more images on my HOME portfolio of images page  https://blhphotoblog.wordpress.com/portfolio/drag-racing-2018/
