crowley - watch the staging lights in the video here is how they are, top to bottom: prestage stage yellow yellow yellow green red
the GENTLEMANS way is to prestage and then not stage until both are prestaged, as most organizations have time limits (say, 7 seconds once one person has staged) by double staging (prestaging and staging before other person has even staged) it will sort of mess with your head a bit and rush the person some. Many races will DQ for this Its just a jerk move really
Ok thanks, I'll have to find out what staging and prestaging means. In the vintage racing, tarmac, pre '60mx and most recently, grasstrack, that I participate in, the start grid is all about messing with your fellow racers head
adam even with my laymans knowledge of drag racing, i can tell you this after the burnout you break the first beam, this is pre stage, when both are in pre stage you nudge forward to engage stage, this is where the mind games can come in, once you are both in stage the lights will then go as stated above see the green, your too slow, no doubt someone will be along to better inform you. are you going to the nmm on sunday adam?
