NitrOlympX Drag Racing - Event Information
Drag Racing: The Sport
Drag Racing tests the limits of cars and motorcycles – the action you are about to witness goes way beyond other Motorsports’ high-octane thrill. To reach speeds of up to 500 km/h and power exceeding up to six times the gravitational force, fuel mixtures of nitrous oxide, methanol and nitrogen as well as turbos and compressors are essential.
This sport gives you highly concentrated action: Competition Cars and Competition Bikes race one quarter of a mile (402.33 meters), side by side on parallel lanes, in a daring quest to reach the finish line first. The overall win in each category is determined through a bracket format, where the looser of each Drag Race falls out and the winner continues to the next round. Times are measured in two stages: reaction time and elapsed time. The winner must obtain the fastest combined time.
The Cars & Bikes
You will witness incredible cars and bikes, optimized for pure speed. The cars are split into two categories: Altered (which are rebuilt cars, based on a well-known body) and Dragsters (cars especially designed for acceleration races competing in different fuel categories, with an extremely long wheel base).
Hockenheimring is a renowned motorsport arena, known for a multitude of racing classics such as the Formula One German Grand Prix. In August, this magnificent Autodrom hosts the NitrOlympX Drag Race on the Rico Anthes Quartermile by the track’s South Grandstand.
