Jurby Dragfest 2017

Petrol-heads travel north

Petrol-heads can still get their motor sport fix this weekend at the 2017 Isle of Man Drag-racingFest.

Held at Jurby Airfield today (Saturday) and tomorrow, the event is open to all who have a roadworthy vehicle, a helmet and driving licence.

Competitors with race cars and bikes line up in alongside each other to race the quarter mile straight - the top four in each class head into an elimination 'face-off'.

It's been planned in conjunction with Straightliner's Events and the Manx Drag Racing Association.

Organiser Trevor Duckworth's been letting punters know what to expect:
