The team at Yas Marina opened the doors to their stunning (and we mean stunning) Drag racing facility this past weekend for the first in this seasons Pro Drag Racing competitions. For those that have a penchant for burning rubber and bettering their E.T’s it was most certainly an event that shouldn’t have been missed.
For those that made the trip to the track they would have witnessed the leading drivers and teams from across the GCC going head to head in the first round of the ultimate test of speed, across seven classes.
The classes that were up on the roster included – Pro Modified; Outlaw 10.5; Super Eliminator (7.50 Index); Pro Bike; Super Street Bike; Pro 6; and Super Street 8. Running on the 1/8th mile track, the evening was actioned packed and turned some super quick times.
The pro drag racing event is comprised of four races throughout the season with a faintly monumental grand total purse of AED 1.4 million in prize money on the table.
We are know feverishly trying to plan the build of our quarter mile muncher so that we can get involved in the action. We will no doubt keep you posted over the coming weeks.
