Q. Who are we?
A. The club was originally formed in 2001 as the Northern Fast Electric Racing Club but changed it's name in 2005 becoming the Northern Amp Draggers. The aim of the club is to provide high quality competition (and most importantly good fun) for anyone wanting to race the UK & NAVIGA classes. The classes we race are based on popular demand in the North of England which currently consist of surface drive boats, both mono-hulls and hydroplanes.

A. The season usually starts in late March and we have a series of 7 events throughout the season with the final one in September/October. Races are held at Bridlington.
Q. Can I pre-book?
A. Yes you can, in fact we prefer drivers to pre-book as it saves valuable time on the day for everyone. That doesn't mean to say that you have to pre-book, entries are very welcome on the day at any meeting.
Q. What are the rules.
A. We race to the UK MPBA set of rules and this enables drivers to prepare for racing at the UK National Championships each year if they wish.
