GRID Autosport // Drag Racing

Recommended Posts

The stifling heat, the shuddering vibrations, the smell of burnt rubber, the deafening roar of the engines; and of course, the earth-shattering acceleration.

At the pinnacle of GRID Autosport’s drag racing are the mighty “Funny Cars”, so-called because there is nothing normal about them. The experience of driving one is like an all-out assault on the senses, as drivers try to wrestle eight thousand horsepower into submission as they are propelled at speeds in excess of three hundred miles per hour. That’s fast enough to cover a quarter-mile in less than 4 seconds.

Let’s take a moment to consider how monstrously powerful these cars are. With a bellow of fire and smoke, zero to one hundred miles per hour is dealt with in less than a second, during a stage when the engine is artificially restricted to prevent the driveshaft from shattering, and the tyres from being shredded. At two seconds into the run, the car easily surpasses two hundred miles per hour and is still accelerating at five g’s – the engine power is ramped up to maximum, and it’s consuming roughly one and a half gallons of fuel every second.
