Fueltopia Barrel Sprint

The Barrel Sprint is a cross between drag racing and drifting that challenges driver skill over all out horse-power.

Just like a traditional RWYB day the event is open to all street legal cars and any racer with a valid UK driving licence. It doesn't matter if they have a 400hp Skyline or a 80hp Ford Fiesta.

The course is very similar to a traditional drag strip. It has two lanes set out over a distance of 100m rather than a 1/4 mile. Each lane will have three barrels evenly placed along the track. Every driver must navigate a full 360 degrees around the barrel and over the finish line faster than their rival. Rather than relying on big budget and big power, the FBS is all about driver skill.

After a morning of qualifying the fastest 16 will be entered into knock-out rounds, resulting in a final between the two quickest drivers.

The FBS provides all the action of drag racing with the flair and skills of drifting. It allows RWD to meet FWD and AWD in a head to head showdown. Unlike drift events this series is against the clock.

If you'd like to get involved in the Fueltopia Barrel Series you can find all of the details on www.fueltopiabarrelsprint.com. Fueltopia is a motoring social network website that is open to all petrolheads from around the globe. It was established to allow car fans to keep a blog about their car and share information with others.
