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
