York Dragway – Beetles v. Minis – Easter Sunday 31/03/2013

Happy Easter everyone .

Today, we’re off to the 18th annual Bettles v. Minis drag racing shootout up at York Dragway in North Yorkshire. We’ve been going most years and always have fun – although we’re not looking forward to the cold this year. Over the years we’ve seen some fast campers try their hand at the quarter mile too! If there are any today I’ll post some videos on the site.

Check out this Youtube video to get a flavour:

Theres a camper on it at about 3:46 on the video.
