Junior Drag Racing Fun Day 2016

Wednesday 31st August 2016 - 10am to 4pm

Junior Drag Fun Day 2015 Report

The 3rd annual Junior Drag Racing Fun Day was a slightly wetter affair than the previous years. Those who were not put off by a bit of rain were able to sample all the off-track entertainment that was in abundance.

Emily’s Star was the chosen charity for this year’s Junior Day and the team arrived bright and early eager to raise lots of money.

The Red Dragon 10 Seater Monster Truck proved extremely popular and those who wanted to climb aboard this 5 tonne beast were treated to a ride of a lifetime. Santa Pod’s resident Monster Truck ‘Podzilla’ put on a car crushing display at lunchtime much to the delight of the children watching from the grandstands.

In the Paddock Arena, the Go Motorsport team had a queue for most of the day for the free passenger rides on the Autosolo handling course. Stunt bike extraordinaire, Lee Bowers, amazed the crowds with his array of acrobatic tricks on his range of Kawasaki motorbikes.

The Bloodhound Supersonic Car was an impressive sight and the team were happy to chat about the 1000mph landspeed world record attempt. The Bloodhound Driving Experience was also a hit for those wanting to have ‘hands-on’ involvement.

Fuelers Bar was an indoor retreat with movies playing on the big screen and a craft corner for those wanting to let off some creative steam. The face painting and hair braiding was extremely popular with the youngsters.

The junior racers were able to showcase their drag racing skills in the afternoon when the rain stopped. To a packed 3,000 seat grandstand, the juniors impressed the crowds and the spectators were finally able to see some drag racing action. Unfortunately the heavens opened again at 5.45pm bringing a halt to the day.

The initial amount raised for Emily’s Star is £2,033.55 with donations still coming in. The amount so far will fund 67 Emily’s Star neonatal boxes. The charity was founded to raise awareness of Trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome) and provide NNU boxes to hospitals in the UK for babies born prematurely or underweight. For more information on Emily’s Star, visit www.EmilysStar.co.uk
