By the time you read
this, you’ll probably be ei-
ther getting ready to head
to a drag strip for the
Easter break, or you’ll al-
ready be there.
I’m getting ready for a
hectic Easter, split be-
tween Santa Pod and York
Raceway. That’ll mean

next issue.
We’ve pulled together
a really varied issue this

everyone. We’re indebted
to our friends Julian Hunt
and Roger Gorringe for
their contributions, and as

for features, or of ways in
which we can continue im-
proving DRC.
Safe racing everyone!
We aim to publish an issue of
Drag Racing Confidential
on the first Wednesday of every month, but because we do not suffer
from the same scheduling limitations that are imposed upon traditional magazines by printing and distribution deadlines, we
might decide to delay an isue from time to time so we can include material from an important event or show. The best way to
