Gardermoen Raceway beats the weather

Save the best for the last, that was definitely the case for the Drag Challenge 2023. The final day of the Drag Challenge at Gardermoen Raceway was a great one with numerous great runs, close finishes and all eliminations completed.

The weather conditions made it a challenging weekend for Gardermoen Raceway and their hard working crew. Rain on Friday and even more on Saturday curtailed qualifying. But after the rain, there will always be sunshine and that happened at Gardermoen Raceway as well. On the Sunday the weather conditions were much better and the crew made it happen as all eliminations were completed in time. Thus the spectators went home with a good feeling as they didn’t only see all eliminations, but also runs of two Top Fuelers, a Top Methanol Funny Car, a Top Methanol Dragster and much more. They will definitely come back!

That the Drag Challenge had a large and international field in almost all classes was visible at the podium as well. There were winners from Sweden and Finland, but also from Germany and even Spain.
