Drag Challenge 2018 – Round 1
ScooterPower and Maxiscoot have been working together for more than 10 years to create the perfect conditions for scooter / moped racing. For 2018, there are some big surprises waiting for you; you’ll find out more on Drag Day #1!
This year, 2 disciplines take centre stage: drag racing and circuit racing, making sure there’s something for everyone.
In addition, 3 new drag race categories will be introduced to make the competition even more fair.
On top, the prizes for the winners of the Stage6 R/T Challenge were doubled.
Here is the complete programme and everything you need to know.
Drag racers will start on the 150m drag strip. Test runs will take place on Saturday, the official races will be on Sunday.
Stunt and wheelie fans can show off their skills. There will be a competition for the longest and the fastest wheelie.
To win this challenge , you’ll have to disassemble and reassemble a cylinder as fast as possible.
SALBRIS RACE TRACK
The gates of the International Karting Track Salbris will open on Friday 20 at 7pm so everyone can settle into the pits (with power supply) and set up camp on the huge campground.
Then it’s time to get ready, pilots can use the test track and burnout zone with direct access to the pit lane.
2 tracks will be open: the 150 meter drag strip for drag racers and the 600 meter circuit track that can be used by all riders.
Just like at every ScooterPower event, Maxiscoot will bring their state-of-the-art time measurement system to make sure that reaction / elapsed time and top speed are measured as precisely as possible. Two huge screens will display the results in real time.
