2011 UK Sprint Meetings

January 5th, 2011

It’s 2011 and another season of thrashing up drag strips at breakneck speed beckons. The last couple of years have seen some astounding top speed records being set in the UK so who knows what could happen in 2011.

Sprint meetings organised by Straightliners take place at various drag strips across the country and there are classes for all scooters ranging from road legal scooters to full blown sprinters. New riders are always made welcome and it’s an easy way to get started in racing. Why not take your scooter along and see how fast you can do the quarter mile? A full list of rules and regulations along with quarter mile records can be found at
