This is a thread for motorsport questions that may not deserve their own topic.
For example, if you were to race an F1 car in a drag racing competition, complete with its fat front tyres and powerful brakes, would you be required to run with a parachute?
And if the car was 2017 or earlier, would you be required to fit a safety cage? If the car was 2018 or 2019 with the Halo, would that need to be upgraded/modified to suit drag racing rules?
I am assuming that an F1 car would be able to do the 1/4 mile in around 7.5s to 8.5s.
Also regarding drag racing, what is the purpose of burnouts? Is it to warm the tyres or clean the tyres?
In the top classes I understand that the idea is to lay some rubber down on the road to help with the launch, but with lower/amateur categories the burnout is performed well behind where the car lines up at the lights.
