Default New Heads Up Drag Racing Class for 2019

There will be a VWDRC Heads Up Class for 2019, this is a bit of a departure for the VWDRC which has always been bracket club since its inception 30 odd years ago, but thereís a lot of racers who wish to race purely heads up, so we have decided to branch out and add to the existing Sportsman and Pro Classes.

The idea is simple; any VAG door car with a VAG powerplant (or suitable aftermarket, i.e. Pauter Flat Four) capable of covering the quarter mile in 11.99 or less can compete, pure heads up racing, first to the finish wins.

As the Heads Up Class is still a trial for 2019 it wonít be at MSA rounds, but will be held at GTI Spring Festival, Das Auto Show and GTI Festival, all at Santa Pod.

Entry is £65 per event, which will include an extra ticket and priority track time, youíll need to be a member of the VWDRC and will also need to wear the appropriate safety gear.

For any more information please check out the website www.vwdrc.com, contact us at info AT vwdrc.com or via social media.

Hope to see you at the track!

Do you have to have run an 11.99 or better already to take part?

Nope, however youíll need to run 11.99 or quicker during the qualifying rounds to get through to the eliminations.

Quick update, weíve had an unprecedented amount of interest in the new class, the goal was 8 for the first round, weíve got 18 entries!

Thereís a mixture of air and watercooled, FWD/RWD/AWD, itís looking like itís going to be a truly epic first round.

Get yourselves to GTi on 14th April at Pod for the best 1 day show with the best racing.

If anyone is interested in taking part later in the year, Iíll be there Sat/Sun if thereís any questions - look for the blue Hi-Top T25 Westy in the pits
