Sydney’s Allars's
interpretation of the American dragster. Driven by himself, it’s noise and spectacle stunned the UK motoring press at its Silverstone launch in 1964. On a typically ‘non Californian’ Northamptonshire day, the 354 cubic inch (5.75 litre, 6-71 GMC supercharged Chrysler engined creation made its’ first bellowing run down a quarter mile of the Silverstone club straight. This marked the birth of British drag racing in Britain, all down to Sydney’s (good) eye spotting the potential of an exciting new addition to British motorsport. Subsequently the British Drag Racing Foundation was formed with Sydney Allard as President.

 

The Allard Dragster is now housed at National Motor Museum, Beaulieu but is often displayed at SantaPod where Lynda and I have seen run the 1/4 mile (albeit slowly).

This picture was taken at SantaPod on one of those days it did a demonstration run.
