TURBO Snowmobile Drag Race on 1/4 Mile
It was weird seeing a snowmobile doing a quarter mile acceleration on the Rivanazzano Dragway! This particular sled is an Arctic Cat XF 9000 powered by a turbocharged 3-cylinder 4-stroke engine which is able to deliver more than 200HP
What is Snowmobile?
A snowmobile, also known as a motor sled, motor sledge, skimobile, snowscooter, or snowmachine, is a motorized vehicle designed for winter travel and recreation on snow. It is designed to be operated on snow and ice and does not require a road or trail, but most are driven on open terrain or trails.
What is Drag Racing?
Drag racing is a type of motor racing in which automobiles or motorcycles (usually specially prepared for the purpose) compete, usually two at a time, to be first to cross a set finish line. The race follows a short, straight course from a standing start over a measured distance, most commonly 1⁄4 mi (1,320 ft; 402 m), with a shorter (1,000 ft (305 m)) becoming increasingly popular, as it has become the standard for Top Fuel dragsters and funny cars, where some major bracket races and other sanctioning bodies have adopted it as the standard, while the 1⁄8 mi (660 ft; 201 m) is also popular in some circles. Electronic timing and speed sensing systems have been used to record race results since the 1960s.
汽车短程加速赛是一种赛车，其中汽车或摩托车（通常是为此目的专门准备的）通常是一次比赛两次，首先冲过终点线。比赛从站立的起点开始，经过一段短而直的路线，经过一定距离，最常见的是1⁄4英里（1,320英尺； 402 m），而较短的（1,000英尺（305 m））变得越来越流行， 顶级燃油赛车和有趣的汽车的标准，一些主要的支架竞赛和其他制裁机构已将其作为标准，而1⁄8英里（660英尺； 201m）在某些圈子中也很流行。自1960年代以来，电子计时和速度感应系统已用于记录比赛成绩。
