Sunday, 8月1日 Fuji Speedway で開催された Super American Festival (SAF), Drag Race に参加しました。
I participated in the Drag Races at the Super American Festival (SAF) that was held on Sunday, August 1 at Fuji Speedway.
The ’69 Camaro was entered in a category called Pro Class that was for non-street legal race cars and the 13 car had times from 8-11 seconds with an eight car elimination.
The Camaro runs in the mid to high 11 second range at best so I had little to no chance to qualify. However, as it turned out, I ranked 7th and made it to the Eliminations.
Even with the chance of running in the Elimination rounds, it is hard because of the pairing of 1st and 8th, 2nd and 7th, etc. basically tops and bottoms but the middle area like 3, 4, 5 and 6 are good pairing to watch. As for 2nd and 7th in this scenario it is almost a given unless the 2nd ranked car gets a red light or breaks down.
However, that’s the way Drag Racing works. On that note, the best chance that the slower cars have is beating the other off the line and running away as fast as possible. If this goes well, they have slightly a better chance because there’s psychology involved as well. RT (Reaction Time) was the only way to have a chance for my Camaro!!
As for me, this worked to a degree, perhaps the first 100 feet I was in the lead off the line but then from my rear I could see the other car quickly catch up and pass and by the finish line there was a big margin.
