I like to tell people I'm to old to road race, and I'm not very good at turning left (NASCAR), so I stick to what I can do: drag racing.

As much as I read about 1/4 mile I would think the poll would tilt that way. Though allot of owners like road racing. Nice to know.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

I'm a drag racer at heart, but since I have started running Pumpkin on road course I'm a convert. What a HOOT.

I'd have to say road racing as it is a lot more fun!



Autocrossing is also a great time and a bit cheaper!



Kind regards,

Went to Hallet (road course) a few months back. Drag racing isn't even close.
My Camaro is biased toward road racing, but I'll drag race every chance I get..

Yea with my new purchase I think Road Racing will be next. Just need to make it through the winter months.

I feel it is as simple as this: Would you rather spend all day at the drag strip for about 6-8 10-12 second runs, or spend all day at the autocross course for about 6 45-60 second runs, or spend all day at the road course driving the pi$$ out of your car for 4 30 minute lapping sessions, or more. 2 hrs of high speed seat time wins for me and results in a true permagrin.

I love the road racing at mosport.
BUT the 1/2 mile top speed is my new favorite rush.
Almost 150mph either track still in 4th gear!

I agree with this. The rush is hard to beat. Only one other thing gives me more adrenaline.

I drove a HPDE at Motorsports Ranch in Texas this past January an I'm hooked
Next trip will be on March 22
I don't think the 1/4 mile run can compare
