Saturday the 12th of October saw round 4 of the now fairly well established Dakota Drag & Drift held at Smeatharpe airfield. The formula has remained the same for the last few events- drag racing on one side of the runway and some fancy skid racing at the other end….this seems to work well as it ensures a busy event, with fans of both disciplines freely wandering between the two. Whilst we spent a bit of time watching people tear up the quarter mile, it is drifting we came to see.
With all 50 spaces sold out the event was pretty busy. Despite a wet miserable start to the day causing plenty of grip issues, the track gradually dried up enough by the afternoon to see some smoke 🙂
then sunshine happened (kind of)…
round 5 takes place on the 16th of November which will be the last event this year as we understand it…so don’t miss it!
