Drag racing seems simple on the outside, but anyone who has tried to get the best time from their motorcycle would know that looks can be deceiving.
Doing the right burnout, nailing the launch RPM, sliding the clutch and hitting shift points – it all needs to come together in a perfect symphony of horsepower to produce the best time slip you can achieve.
Many riders have used the advice of national record holder Daniel Natalotto over the years at Perth Motorplex’s Formula Tech Whoop Ass Wednesday events. There Daniel is the ‘go to guy’, who helps explain the basics of the drag strip and makes many new riders comfortable with taking on the quarter mile. He and a knowledgeable group of riders are now aiming to help out new drag racers with one-on-one time to really extract the most from the abilities of their bike and themselves.
One hour tutorial sessions are available on Wednesday nights at Perth Motorplex between 7.30pm and 8.30pm. For just $100, you can gain from years of knowledge and provide advice tailored to your riding style to make sure you can go home with a personal best time to be proud of.
