Santa Pod is the UK’s best appointed drag race track. I’ve had an interest in drag racing since starting as a journalist 12 years ago and often go there for a bit of therapy. Blanket on the grassy knoll, some cider and a plump pizza drizzled with 300 degree melted cheese. Two years I took my other half to the European Finals where there was top fuellers amongst door slammers etc, and I noticed this woman. Everyone was watching cars crack 6 second quarter mile times (and less), but this woman had her ear defenders on and was crocheting a tapestry or something. She seemingly didn’t give a toss about the dragsters, she was there to knit. I found that a bit random.
If you’ve not done it already (and if you’re just bored) why not try listening to some of the Carpervert podoutcasts? http://carpervert.podomatic.com
