THE NATIONAL VETERAN TOUR, 2012 - DRAG RACING: A real eye-opener, witnessing the determination of eager Veteran Car Drivers fronting up to the staging area and 'discreetly' charging down the 1/8th mile, then they came back to do it all again. I'm confident Willowbank Raceway had never witnessed such a spectacle before, a certain current Professional Drag Racer even had a go in a 'borrowed' Veteran Car!

THE AWARDS CEREMONY: At the completion of the Drag Racing and a lunch break, Willowbank Raceway presented the Trophies and Certificates for the Fastest ET and Terminal Speed. One car and driver combination #77: Kevin Spackman and his 1913 Model T Ford held off all challengers and 'won the lot'!

Over a measured 1/8th of a mile Kevin achieved an elapsed time record of 17.124 seconds and a terminal speed of 38.19mph in the '1903~1918 Class'.

COMPARISONS: Willowbank Raceway had various Modern Drag Racers and their machinery at the Drag Strip during the National Veterans Tour visit, I endeavoured to capture the extreme variation in form and function between Veteran Cars and Modern Drag Race Cars here:
