Imagine ... the long asphalt of the airport, 402,33 meters or a quarter of a mile long, hills and vineyards everywhere, the natural scenery of the Oltrepò that stands and meets with surprising harmony, one of the most important drag racing competition in Italy. And all around, it will take place the event: the vintage flavour of metal, Harley-Davidson bikes, exposition of classic cars and muscle cars, pin up, beards and live music.
During the race event, the small airport closes and turns into a real drag strip. Paddocks are open and reachable for the visitors, national and international teams position their trucks along the airport areas. Not far, there is the strip with the legendary traffic light "Christmas Tree" with the burnout area for traction improving and the starting line. Two large grandstands for over 1,700 places offer the opportunity to follow the short, straight course of the race.
In the hangar area and the surrounding areas are set up stands with vendors of various kinds: American clothing, gifts, car and motorcycle spare parts. Next, there is the food area with different proposals. Everything is planned to live the experience of the event from Friday morning to Sunday evening. The sound of the engines and the smell of burning rubber will complete the right atmosphere.
The program begins on Friday (2nd September) at 9:00 with the opening of the gates, technical checks, and from 14.30, the first official race tests. At 19:00, the night show along the strip. Saturday (3rd September) is dedicated to qualifications until 19.30. At 19:30 races stops and the strip becomes a big stage for the Dragster & Stunt Night Show.
