Houndog Team c1975

This website highlights the story and evolution of the Houndog Drag Racing Team one of the UK's top drag racing teams from the 1960's through to its "retirement" in the late 1980's.

The site covers the history of the team, from the early / mid 1960's with a Jaguar engined car through to the 1980's state of the art nitro burning Funny Car.

In the heydays of the 1970's and 1980's when drag racing was, arguably, much bigger than today, there were numerous press articles on the team, both in the specialist and popular press, many of which have been scanned and put on this site. 

A section exists for anecdotes, primarily about the Houndog team, but also the old drag racing era in general.

I hope you enjoy the site and find something of interest.
