Welcome to the Web-Site of the ISLAND DRAG RACING ASSOCIATION
The I.D.R.A. was formed ten years ago to further the sport of E.T. Bracket racing on North/Central Vancouver Island.
Our race venue is Saratoga Speedway near Black Creek B.C., half way between Courtenay and Campbell River. While only 330' in length the track boasts a fully electronic, computerized Chrondek timing system and a full length concrete surface. This allows racers to hone their skills on the 'tree' and the super sticky surface is ideal for chassis tuning. Timing slips are issued showing the drivers reaction time, 60' time, elapse time, MPH and margin of victory (MOV). Let's face it -- in E.T. bracket racing (handicap start) most races are decided at the tree or in the first 60'. The rest of the normally quarter mile race tests the durability of the race vehicle.
All racer's are welcome to compete in any of our 2006 - NAPA, Quality Foods, Kyte Delivery point series race events. We especially encourage beginners to come out and participate in this form of Drag Racing. I.D.R.A. membership ($25.00) is required to qualify for points and year-end prizes. There will be two classes in 2006..... PRO class for vehicles 5.49 and quicker and STREET class for vehicles 5.50 and slower. Vehicles must pass a technical inspection and the racer must wear an approved helmet. Admission for car and driver is $42.00 which includes 1 crew member.
