      India finally gets to drag race - Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India officially introduces Drag Racing in the country


      Racing enthusiasts will be excited to learn that Federation of Motor Sports Clubs in India has introduced Drag Racing for the first time in India. Drag racing, in simpler terms means, driving your car or riding your bike from point A to B wherein the fastest driver/rider to reach finish the job, wins the race. Drag racing is said to be both simple yet exhilarating and is capable of testing the driver to maximum limits.

      Drag Racing is very famous in US and Europe. It is now being introduced to India under the guidance of Federation of Motor Sports of India through organizers namely Spitfire Motorsports and Speedway Motorsports. Mr. Vicky Chandok, President of FMSCI said that this is the first time such championships have been organized officially in India, though unofficially, such races have been already taking part across the country.
      The first official drag racing in India will feature a 400 meter strip along which two cars or two bikes will race alongside. A record is maintained of speed and reaction time of each driver. The race is scheduled at Hyderabad for the coming weekend. Coimbatore and Bangalore will also have a chance during the coming months to witness the event.
