“Mogadouro has a great competitive advantage because it is close to Spain and we have the possibility here to create, over time, the main centre for the practice of drag racing at a national and even Iberian level, and attract public to this region ”, race director, Pedro Costa, told Lusa.

The drag racing national championship will be held for the first time in Mogadouro, at the municipal aerodrome, on the 18th and 19th of June, when around 120 drivers from Portugal and Spain are expected to compete.

“The Municipal Aerodrome of Mogadouro was the stage chosen for this event, because the sport requires that it be a straight and safe space for the public and drivers. Access to the track is also good. The event is a tribute and a space for all those who like cars, original or modified”, said Pedro Costa.
