It's real drag racing!  But doesn't appear to be Funny Cars and Top Fuel dragsters like I wished for.  Should be good fun, looking forward to trying this soon (hopefully tonight).

  • New Drag game mode
  • Three drag strips – Hockenheimring, the Autosport Raceway and Detroit
  • Each drag strip features routes up to 1 mile in length
  • 3 drag specific cars
  • Nine new Single Player Championships
  • Price: £3.99 / € 4.99 / $4.99

First off, it's a lot of fun.  The burnout is an FMV and can be skipped, but you must do your own staging and the actual race down the strip.  But the rules format is a bit odd.  Pretty sure this format sticks for all of the new Drag events.

 

16 drivers start on the Qualification Day.  You get two solo passes (both in the left lane for some reason)... best run counts.  Top 8 drivers move on to Race Day, rest are given their 9th thru 16th points.

 

On Race Day it is now a knock-out format.  All rounds are two passes side by side against your opponent (once in each lane), keep your best time of the two passes, driver with the best time wins and moves on to the next round.  Continue thru Semi-Finals and Finals rounds in the same procedures.
