Today we headed over to the York Raceway to spend the day at the Viking Volks Fest. We were going to be camping for the weekend, but with Miles injuring his knee last week it kind of changed our plans, and now its dark and cold outside tonight I’m kind of glad I’m not in a tent at the moment.
I’ve never been to a drag race before and it was brilliant. The noise of the engines and the smell of the burning rubber, it was really exciting. There were VW vs American Muscle car races, as well as the turn up and test your own entrants which ranges from amazingly fast motorbikes to what looked like family cars. It was all to get the fastest time down the strip and to clock the top speed.
As part of the Viking Volks Fest weekend there were monster truck displays… they are massive
as well as the super cool rocket beetle
Here are some more pictures from the day.
What you can’t appreciate with the photos is the noise at the drag strip which just rattles through you. Here are a couple of videos from today… enjoy!
