Having sent you a few results and copies of programmes a while ago, I thought I'd keep the momentum going with an update on the 1987 Santa Pod World Finals. Your report says that Lee Anders Hasselstrom broke at the top end during qualifying. I think it was actually this fireball that put an end to his chances. It was his second attempt at qualifying on finals day.

I took this picture from the stands and this is really what got me started in drag racing photography. The picture was featured in Street Machine and Camera Weekly in June 88, and was used on the front of the 'Decade of Thrills 2' video. The BDRA also had a poster made out of it.

Sadly Lee Anders was killed in a racing accident at the end of July 1988 in Sweden.
