In the NitrOlympX, held from 19th to 21st August, Europe’s best drag racers will fight for important FIA and FIM European Championship points in five car and four motorbike categories. In addition, the crowds also will be entertained by highly ambitious drivers in amateur categories. Some 300 competitors will make for action galore and hot battles in a second-rhythm on the ‘Rico-Anthes-Quartermile’.
After a one-year break, the popular Pro Stock Cars are back and so, the fans of the drag racing’s precision-engineering class may look forward to exciting battles at the starting lights. The ‘cat of preys’ among the dragsters that race without relying on the support of nitrous oxide, nitro, turbo or blower complete this year’s field of the FIA Pro categories that also comprises the Top Fuel-, Pro Modified- and Top Methanol dragsters as well as Top Methanol Funny Cars.
In Drag Racing, from the pinnacle of the sport, Top Fuel, to the sports man classes, the lubrication is – apart from the fuel – one of the most important issues and RAVENOL, German manufacturer of premium products for this area, loves to accept any challenge – even when it comes to the very limits of stress.
In addition to the thrilling quarter-mile duels, the NitrOlympX also feature an open paddock and an entertaining support programme as well as the popular ‘Night Show’ on Saturday evening. Here, the visitors are entertained by a stunning mix of terrific entertainment and a lot of action and speed. Wild stunts, burning rubber, metre-high flames and fireworks are guaranteed.
From the USA, Ron Hope’s spectacular ‘Rat Trap’ and Randy Bradford’s ‘Topolino’ will represent the ‘US Altered AA/Fuel Dragsters’, in the event at Hockenheim. These front-wheel driven vehicles are not only regarded as the most exciting and entertaining cars of the drag-racing history but also are extremely fast – and will provide the crowds an impressive show.
This entertainment package turns the NitrOlympX into a mega highlight and a must on the calendar of every motor-racing enthusiast.
