Drag Fest to roar into life

What’s billed as the Isle of Man's most powerful event of 2016 roars into life this morning (Saturday).

The Pokerstars Drag Fest takes place at Jurby Airfield over two days with high-powered cars and bikes ready to blast down the runway at speeds in the region of over 230mph.

Manx Drag Racing Association membership secretary Eric Holmes says speed will be king.
