Drag Racing in India is set to get a major fillip with the launch of the three-round Drag Race Cup Series.
With over 600 participants entering Round 1 of Drag Race-Cup in Aamby Valley near Lonavla, the organisers India Speed Week, have worked out elaborate plans to up the profile of drag racers via this Series.
From high-end cars such as Lamborghinis and Ferraris to superbikes from KTM, Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha, Aamby Valley saw an assembly of scores of high performance machines speeding through the air strip in 'one against other' drag race.
Drag competitions will be held in six two-wheelers categories and four car categories in two classes-Open class and Series Cup class.
The Drag Race Cup is open to both pro racers and drivers and the one-off participant who wishes to take part in only one of the three rounds that has been sanctioned by the FMSCI, the national motorsports governing body.
