Bank holiday Sun and Mon - drag racing............


Recommended Posts

I know I shouldn't be tempted but just seen this;


Straightliners are back in Cumbria and all car and bike enthusiasts have a chance to take part in a Quarter Mile Drag Racing Day on our doorstep, spectators are welcome.


Sunday 3rd and Monday 4th May

Starting 10.30am until 5pm both days at:

kirkbride Airfield

Wigton

Cumbria

CA7 5LF


This is a full drag strip with all the usual equipment and time slips which will be given out after each run so you know your best time of the day.


Anyone is welcome to take part whether your vehicle is road legal or otherwise.


For those wanting to take part it's £35 for unlimited runs (this includes insurance) all you need is your driving license and a crash helmet.


£5 entry for spectators.


No need to book in advance just turn up on the day, the sooner you get there the more runs you get in.

Catering vans will be there all day.


If this event goes down well they will be back, let's make sure it does!

do you think the bikes could take it!


very, very tempted....

were going by Carlisle which if you get your maps out is about 20 mins from kirkbride (my school catchment area) so could drop by.. and have a look in, unless either of you want to get jiggy..


EDIT 11 Miles

As nice as you are, I am sorry but I am married....


Would be good to 'pop' in but Its £5 to get in and £35 to run

theres plenty of places on the fence line to watch from......
