MSA British Drag Racing Championship
Graham Ellis

Graham Ellis

Car: ’70 Plymouth Superbird
Occupation: Company director – haulage contractor
Home Town/Country: Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex
Team: Ellis Racing
Best ET: 6.526 seconds
Best Terminal Speed: 218.07mph

Made Pro Mod debut in 2008 with just a token launch in Easter’s freezing weather. Then forsook the cautious approach to blast straight into the 6sec/200mph zone in the performance highspot of May’s Main Event (MSA Rnd.2). At June’s Summer Nationals (MSA Rnd.3), clocked new career bests (6.526/218.07) to reach semi-final. Broke in the single qualifying session at the rain-wrecked European Finals (MSA Rnd.4) but bounced back to qualify low and win first victory of his Pro Mod career at National Finals (MSA Rnd.5). Ended debut season as MSA runner-up to champion Philip Englefield.
