For the first in Lithuania there is going to be Bracket drag race. The race is really popular in the USA. For Bracket drag race the most important part plays not the car or speed, but the skills of the driver. Toyota Yaris can beat BMW M3 or any other car. How is it possible?
The driver will drive 1/8 mile distance with no time restrictions. The time limits sets the driver himself, the more exact time to the set one will drive - the higher the place. The big part plays the reaction of the driver to the green light.
