Dragpro series underway

HARARE - Racing enthusiasts are set for another exciting public drag racing series when the Dragpro 2013 season gets underway at Donnybrook on Saturday.

The Dragpro series has six racing days which run throughout the year.

Cars expected to be racing on the day range from basic run-arounds through to performance production cars and several highly-modified purpose built vehicles in the form of Subarus, skylines and V8s.

Two-wheel fans will also have a treat as bikes ranging from 50cc to 1400cc have been lined up for the event.

Thirty prizes and 32 trophies will be up for grabs, which is likely to up competition with motorsport fans set to see drivers pushing their vehicles to the limits.

Dragpro Club secretary Susan Zevgolis said public drag racing is increasing in popularity due to its accessibility to the average motorist and racing enthusiast.

“Spectator and competitor numbers are at an all-time high and this season should see some new contenders on the start line and increased spectator numbers,” she said.

“All day family entertainment, jumping castles, and full bar and catering, make a day out at Donnybrook an enjoyable family day.

 “Those who enjoy spinning and burnouts are also in for an added treat at this first event of the year as there will be three spinners Fat Cat, Maurice and Anonymous (Spin Kid) putting on a display during the course of the day.”

Audio enthusiasts will have a chance to take part in the Sound Off competition run by Venom Customs in conjunction with the drags.

Zevgolis said the event could not have been possible without the aid of a host of sponsors.

“These events are made possible by the generosity of the following mentioned sponsors – hp lubes/Castrol, Belts ‘n’ Hoses, RAM Petroleum, Turbo Solutions Africa and Autobusiness Magazine.”

Admission is $5 per person with children under 10 year getting in for free. - Sports Writer
