About ‘The Ultimate Drag Race’
The Ultimate Drag Race was conducted on an air strip under a professional and controlled environment. The air strip was completely cordoned off and all the timings were measured using proper tools. The length of the race was 400-metres because this is the international standard for drag races and is strictly followed globally. There were proper markings for the start and end points and there was also a race steward to ensure that no rider made a false start and all of them adhered to the rules. To avoid any ambiguity, multiple runs of drag races were conducted by swapping the riders and the results were similar.
