    hmmm reducing power on dragsters..... cant they make wings on a jumbo jet smaller too, they are bit oversized too
    ok, it is a dangerous sport, thats for sure. but as fat as i know. no driver gets forced to drive a dragster and they all drive voluntairly in thier fast cars.

    what i find strange, nothing to do with the europe dragster circuit, is that the americans are building track that has 4 instead of 2 lanes. to me, thats a higher risk than bit of HP. or is that just mine horrorthought?

    teach your children to think, not what to think.
    I am different, just like you.

    i totally agree with this, no one forces anybody to jump into a dragster, they should be allowed to progress with there speed even further. The 4 lane drag strip is a stupid idea.

    It's a safety issue. Many tracks were originally developed in the 60's and don't have run off areas to cope with ever increasing speeds. Not easy to extend them when a freeway was built across the end of the facility twenty years ago. Response to the Scott Kalitta incident amongst others.
