R.A.C GOVERNED

SUPERGAS CARS DO THE 1/4 MILE IN 9.90 SECS

TOP FUEL CARS DO IT IN LESS THAN
5 SECONDS AT 300MPH

Drag racing is an R.A.C. governed motor sport in which cars race in pairs from a standing start over a 1/4 mile distance. Competitions are to a Knock- Out format with the individual winner progressing to the next round.

The sport is Spectacular, Dramatic and Fast !!

Cars in the Super Gas Class cover the 1/4 mile in around 9.90 seconds with Terminal speeds of around 150 m.p.h. Top fuel cars cover 1/4 mile in 4.7 secs with Terminal speeds of over 300 m.p.h.

DRAGSTERS DO IT IN TWO'S !!

Spectators attention is concentrated on the 2 cars which dominate the track at any one time,rather than being spread over a large number of cars over a large area as it is with most other forms of Motor Sport. Their attention focused directly upon the roaring machine that waits with throttle open and engine exuding raw energy for the lights to go green and unleash the 750 horsepower housed beneath the bonnet.

Due to the Knock out format success provides multiple exposure for cars as they progress into the following rounds leading to the Individual Meeting Final in their class.

Drag Racing is recognized as a Powerful Marketing Tool in the U.S.A. So much so that a 10- minute Video "THE WINNING TEAM" has been produced which vividly captures the excitement of the sport and with it demonstrates the HIGH PROFILE and PRODUCT EXPOSURE POTENTIAL

Although smaller than in the U.S.A. the U.K. offers the same AUDIENCE PROFILE in a GROWING MARKETPLACE where the same marketing principles apply.

The "Team" acts as a MARKETING OUTLET and distributes product information as well as providing exposure due to success on the track. To arrange a viewing of the Video as well as sample examples of available promotional material simply email Frank Mason or Maureen Mckeown
