I thought that was only a temporary measure following the fatal accident last year.

His chute got burnt as his engine popped and unfortunately hit a wall or a crane at the end of the strip.

Problem is the run off has to be longer than the 1/4 mile itself otherwise you have to decelerate at the same rate or quicker than the acceleration on the 1/4.

1/8th milers aren't uncommon in the US though

EDIT - Just been looking on the net and looks like the 1,000ft is to stay but only relevant for the nitro classes
