Re: How long should a drag strip be?
Why not have 2 classes, one for pedal start and one for throttle start? In pedal start you begin each race with the engine off-- throttle start is like any other drag race.
Also, some bikes could run in both classes, in which case you might see some very different results from the same bike.
As for how long the track should be-- depends on how full you can fill the grandstands. The more fans the longer the track.
Seriously, I would think no more than 1/8 mile and probably no more than 1/16.
