2017 Harley Drags

Qualifying and Racing format

  • All participants should have 3 qualifying runs, followed by 3 races, with 2 participants progressing to the finals.
  • Qualifiers are run end-to-end ….. so our qualifying is usually complete prior to the track opening to the public ‘Race Ya Mate’.
  • ‘Dial-your-own’ handicap format
  • Bye runs are randomly allocated. Bye run scores an automatic win.
  • Two finalists are decided by finding the racers gaining 3 wins. If more than two are eligible – the total difference between the (Light + ET) and Dial-in (on positive side only, ie breakout + redlight runs excluded) of all three races will be calculated, with the two riders having the least difference progressing to the finals.
