One of the largest events on the British modified motocycle calendar opens its gates tomorrow (Thursday 9th August) as the Bulldog Bash begins its 26th anniversary.
Known for having one of the largest custom bike shows in the UK, a bar and band marquee big enough to cover most of the Shetland Islands and a dance tent that, seemingly, never stops, the Bulldog is also known for the accessible and cheap drag racing - in fact, many people start their drag racing career at the Bulldog, but it's not just amateurs, as there's display runs by some of the fastest bikes in Britain, some squirelly and unpredictable drag cars and the fastest jet bike on the planet.
There'll also be an onsite dyno, the UK's Strong Man finals, a funfair (not so much fun if you've availed yourself of the beer tent and plentiful catering stalls) and an Adult marquee too.
The event runs from tomorrow until Sunday, is at Shakespeare County Raceway in Lng marston, just utside Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire. And if you want to get the most bang-for-your-buck with the drag racing, get there early and stay util Sunday, and the strip will be open then too (weather permitting... ahem).
