The Fast Show


Street Nationals 2013
Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May

The Street Nationals is an event that combines grass-roots participation motorsport with real drag racing competition from top modified car racing classes. This is the bridge that spans the gap between track days and real racing… and there’s no speed limit!

Whether you are here to watch the racing or take part yourself, this is an event that welcomes all makes and models of cars, and encourages you to take part.


Street Nationals 2013 Report

The Street Nationals has been and gone for another year and what a weekend of action it was despite mother nature’s best attempts to put a damper on things. The track was open sporadically throughout the event with some awesome runs from the FWD Drag Series, Jap Drag Series Street Class, Outlaw Street Series and RWYBers.

Away from the Drag strip the drift rides were running throughout the day along with the ever popular handling track which as usual saw the leaders frequently swapping the quickest time throughout the weekend. The end result was serial winner Dmitrij Sribnyj took home the trophy once again, massive respect to Dmitrij who ran his Subaru on Saturday but after noting the tighter twisty track (and due to the fact that he broke his Subaru) he returned on Sunday with the more nimble Honda Civic and set the fastest time of the weekend after an epic dual with Charles Bunyan in his MX5.

If you turned up in your mum’s car then you still had an opportunity to have a go in something with a bit of power in the form of the Speedcross Gymkhana which was running on the other side of site throughout the weekend.
The RWYB competition winners were as follows, it really was great to see so many cars running 12 seconds and quicker!

The new FWD Drag Series was extremely impressive throughout the weekend with some excellent 9 second runs by the top 2 qualifiers, Kiel Priestman and Calvin Skerritt who met in the final round of eliminations with Kiel taking the event win.

The Jap Drag Series wasn’t quite completed as the rain came in as they were due to run their final which would have seen Andre Gysler in his spare car facing Rob Blackshaw who smashed into the 8 second bracket earlier in qualifiying with a huge PB.

Outlaw Street and Old Skool Ford were the other race classes running at the event and despite not running eliminations they put in some lightning quick runs throughout the weekend.

If you enjoyed yourself this weekend then don’t forget that we have USC here at Santa Pod on the 2nd-4th August which is a real party weekend for any modified metal enthusiasts, full details at www.ultimatestreetcar.co.uk. Failing that the next similar track based event with FWD, JDS and more is God of the Pod on Saturday 17th August.  We’ll see you there if not before!
