GRAVELRAMA’S® UP-HILL DRAG RACE

Gravelrama’s® Up-Hill Drag Race is a one of a kind type of drag race. In only 100ft racers must react, hammer the gas and brake hard all while trying to beat their opponent. This race takes an immense amount of skill and attention to detail. They must beat their opponent up the hill to the cone at the top while remaining on the ground so they don’t go airborne. All these factors come in to play in just a matter of seconds which makes for very intense racing. You are sure to see some exciting moments especially when the big power cars come to play.
