Grassroots Drag Racing manual launched

This article brought to you by:

Are you new to drag racing, or maybe you’re a racer with friends or fans that don’t have a full understanding of the sport, but are too shy to say anything? An ideal Christmas present for a mate?

The Australian Women’s Motorsport Network Inc has an ‘Introduction to Grassroots Drag Racing’ manual that may be of help. Originally developed for the AWMN’s drag racing training days for women, this handy guide is now available for anyone interested in this fantastic sport.


The manual includes stuff like drag racing lingo, drag racing basics, basic scrutineering, track etiquette, an 1/8th to 1/4 mile conversion chart, pages to attach time slips and make notes (or get autographs of your favourite racers if you don’t compete) – and more!


The drag racing manual is an AWMN fundraising initiative. Drag News Australia is proud to support this initiative by promoting this manual on our site and by sponsoring advertising in the manual.
