Don Garlits at Santa Pod Part Two
Part two of the ITV report of the Easter 1976 Drag Racing meeting when Don Garlits paid a visit. I know this is posted elsewhere, but there is something wrong with the aspect ratio.





Santa Pod - Easter 1976 (part 1 of 2)
This is a recording from the ITV which shows highlights from the Easter 'Spring Nationals' meet in 1976 - Santa pod's 10th anniversary - watch by over 50,000 people!!, Where the first 5 Second run was achieved. Also, Don 'Big Daddy' Garlits was racing here. For the first time in Europe there was an eight car top Fuel entry. Garlits had mechanical problems and qualified no.5 with a 6.89/215mph. No.1 qualifier was Peter Crane in the 'Stormbringer' with a 6.21/215mph pass. Garlits and Crane met in the first round of eliminations... the rest is history The quality isn't great but nor was it then back in '76. Anyway, it's quite long but worth the watch in my option. Hope you enjoy it Please comment
