Surrey Street Rodders Club History

 

'Harold Martin trying to repair his trouser zip over 30 years ago!' - Grahame Smith

 

With roots dating back to the sixties, the Surrey Street Rodders have a long history of involvement in the rod and custom scene.

Several years before this article was written a small group of friends, who met at National events, decided to regularly get together in each others homes/garages.

Their common interest in Drag Racing, Hot Rods and Customs led to the forming of the Surrey Street Rodders.

 

On Easter Monday in 1974 a small show held at South Hill Park, Bracknell was named "Wheels Day". Since then the Surrey Street Rodder's Wheels Day has been held on Good Friday and raised thousands of pounds for charity as well as outgrown a number of venues previously used to host the event.

The Club has always tried to support other other events, taking part as a club or individuals with SSR backing.

National Rod Runs, International Rod Runs, Cruise for Charity, Cruises, Sposoring awards at American Rod Runs and more.

 

Although the club has changed quite a bit over the last 40+ years it has been going, one thing has never changed - its dediation to the Drag Racing, Hot Rod and Custom scene!
