Some while back, when this site was in its early stages, Steve Collins sent me a couple of photos that he had from the NDRC meeting at Martlesham Heath near Ipswich. The date was May 3rd 1970 and this was only the second meeting that the NDRC had organised, the first being at Santa Pod. This photo shows Wild Bill Weichelt launching the Dos Palmos gas dragster. Bill won the Top Dragster class at this meeting with a 9.79 against a 10.10 from John Siggery in Geronimo. It was the start of a very sucessful year for Bill which saw him win just about everything he entered. Look out for a profile of the Dos Palmos car coming to this site very soon.
