    Gary Lee, Great jobs for organization the biggest prizes money in the drag motorsport! We in JB few top drag race teams in Malaysia interesting to enter the AMF Drag race but
    but we have some question on this few related thing

    1)Why the entries closing so early?
    2) Is it Compulsory Competition License issue by AAM? Why? We not race whole circuit!
    3) Protective Clothing rules? Too hurry! Why no set the rule for next year?
    4) Full roll cage for car that exceed certain time and speed? Too hurry! Why no set the rule for next year? Don’t organized something last minits job & make the dragsters not convenient!

    5) Engine cc base on what definition? road tax? or others?
    6) If only few cars enter will the organization still continue and the prizes money same to give that what they announce?

    According ours knowledge the FIA drag race rules which organization practice but we don't have such standard drag track approve by FIA! The Sepang circuit was a international racing track circuit not the proper Drag track!!

    The organizers and the race marshals should be fair in handling the events and put up a good show for the spectators. We will ready to enter & to win it far from JB, hope the organization don't last minit change there & here for waste our times, money & effort for supporting the drag motorsport in Malaysia.

    Pls to define & write in black and white to post in official web or media...

    Thanks

    Best regards,

    Hi there, Thanks very much for your interest and also to all the drag teams in johor.


    1)Why the entries closing so early?

    As you should know by now, That has been rectified, and the new closing date is 14th October.

    2) Is it Compulsory Competition License issue by AAM? Why? We not race whole circuit!

    The event is officially FIA sanctioned, and competition licenses issued by the national automobile body, which is AAM in malaysia is compulsory. Competitors from other Asian countries (thailand or singpore) are required to be holders of their national competition license, and then also required to inform their respective governing body to receive a release that will allow them to race in Malaysia.

    3) Protective Clothing rules? Too hurry! Why no set the rule for next year?

    We hope that competitors will try to meet the ruling as best they can.

    4) Full roll cage for car that exceed certain time and speed? Too hurry! Why no set the rule for next year? Don’t organized something last minits job & make the dragsters not convenient!

    There are no Drag Cars in Malaysia who have official times listed with AAM.

    5) Engine cc base on what definition? road tax? or others?

    Based on Competitors declaration. But we reserve the right to inspect fully the winners cars or in the case of an official protest.

    6) If only few cars enter will the organization still continue and the prizes money same to give that what they announce?

    We have a commitment to our Sponsors BFGoodrich and Conoco, as well as our competitors, to run our drag events as well as all other events AMF is running(autokhana, autocross).
    To date, we have run 3 events in the Asian region, and 3 events in Malaysia. This is only the first drag race for the year, with a 2nd race confirmed for December. We are also commited to continue our drag racing series for the year 2005.


    7)According ours knowledge the FIA drag race rules which organization practice but we don't have such standard drag track approve by FIA! The Sepang circuit was a international racing track circuit not the proper Drag track!!

    As long as the FIA/AAM track inspection officials approve the venue based on safety, suitability, etc. to run a drag race, it is official. Even a purpose built FIA sanctioned venue can fail a track inspection if the proper steps to meet requirements are not met.


    8)The organizers and the race marshals should be fair in handling the events and put up a good show for the spectators.

    All marshalls and officials for the meeting are AAM licensed.

    Gary, V thanks for ur help to make the enquiries from ours more pictures...

    But we still have few questions for more clearly.

    1) Protective Clothing rules?
    We hope that competitors will try to meet the ruling as best they can.
    (Is Compulsory or not?)


    2) Full roll cage for car that exceed certain time and speed?
    There are no Drag Cars in Malaysia who have official times listed with AAM.
    (U mean for 1st time AMF Drag race round 1 not need to have meet those roll cage regulations?)

    On a separate note: If team Vaz maz, and the other johor teams wish, the AMF team can meet them in Singapore.

    Will you guys be interested in that?
    We have the race event at Pasir Gudang Circuit (Johor Sprint Challenge Series V) on 25th Sept, 2004. Can u & the AMF team coming down to meet us & S'pore dragsters in the event?

    From,

    if you don't wanna burn with the car and ending up in the front page. Fire is a REAL danger.

    If your car's fast enough, best to have a 'cage. You'll never know. Safety equiment are like this: The day you need them, you really need them! Besides, not only you're safe, but you make yourself look good. It's like the team's pride that the car(s) look damn proffesional and usually roll-cages look FAST and that attracts the crowd to your car, which is damn good, because then your sponsors get maximum coverage!
    Why build a car that a few ppl only look at?
    Build a car with everything on it! NOT only Engine!
    SET the standard!
    We don't wanna be stuck here (cheapo-mentality racing)

    Any ZTH members gping for the Tt session on Wednesday? I have a few other questions, does BFGoodrich have drag tires? Is it available in Malaysia, any idea of the cost? So far we have seen their brand all over but you have not provided any information. Can I call them to enquire? I have a group of us that are into performance tires so it will be good for us to have more information. No information how to buy?

    Are u representative AMF Drag organization to answer the questions which we JB dragsters need to clarify the rules & regulations? If not, pls don't like "Anjing Liar" blow without nothing!!

    We had played Sprint Challenge race since 2002 until now, we know what to do with the safety!! Our Malaysia Drag race (actually should call Sprint race) motorsport not like others motorsport in Malaysia necessary need those Protective Clothing rules or Full roll cage rules, because sprint race no full run whole circuit! And Sprint race was the cheaper race for many beginer, but had most spectators interesting to look compared to others motorsports!!

    Ok, since u quite care about safety & told so interesting. U or Ur representative Titan company should sponsors us all dragsters the Safety equiments to make us free of hazy looking budget!!! We will put the bigger Titan Stricker at our drag cars... :lol:

    aiyak...

    :P TiTAN don't sponsor THOSE sorta things wan la :lol:

    bro, have you seen cars (dragsters) blowing up at the start-line? he was just revving the engine when the engine block blew and that started alot fireworks within 1-2 secs!

    He survived because he was wearing the regulations 7(!) layers suit.. (FIA 3 layers only)
    and he came out TOTALLY on flames..

    not wanting to scold anyone le :P me not worthy... ^_^

    safety roll-cages wise,
    but if your dragster can hit 200+km/h on the straights, it aint fun when your front tyres blowout. I've seen those too.. they roll outta control and Sepang's concrete walls are harder than the car :blink:

    it's up to you to set the standard :) it'll be the day to be proud of Malaysians to have set the higher standard, even from S'poreans, who're supposedly have better spending power. (btw, even rich buggers like them think twice about buying a proper helmet.. that's how poor our safety mentality here)
