1972 Drag Racing at Santa Pod Raceway Part 1
In 1972 Ian Turbuville and a few friends made a short movie at Santa Pod in
16mm film as part of his second year degree course in fine art at
Nottingham University for which he got a BA hons II.
Sadly the 34 year old film has suffered some deterioration over time and
the soundtrack wasn't able to be saved but what's left is some fantastic
footage of teams like the Stones Tee-Rat,and a classic match race between
Allan Herridge and Dennis Priddle. Also loads of other stuff from the day
like the Firebrewed Pro Stocker.
