European Drag Racing Series EDRS 2012

Good Morning,

here is a report from the EDRS series 2012 on unprepared airport tracks with nearly zero traction .

I'm the one in the blue nova who won the bracket race ProET with a couple of leakages in the heads :-).



hope you like

carl

Congrats and thanks for the video. That one little car looked like it was a two-stroke.

What was the distance you were racing? Being in Germany, I'm guessing 300 meters?

It also appears you were using a runway, judging by the approach lights at the far end of the track.

Good to see drag racing still popular in other countries, even though the bulk of the cars were American.

drag racing is 1/4 or 1/8 mile all over the world

on this event the distance is 1/4 mile by using an airfield in northern germany.
