The Victorian Drag Boat Club has been drag boat racing since 1986 and caters for ALL types of boats from the family ski boat to the purpose built capsule hydro's capable of over 200mph!
Based at the National water sports centre in carrum the club has invested in a new state of the art dual lane timing
system, much like our asphalt cousins that allows for genuine E.T racing in all classes and also gives the racer the
much needed information on each run to allow each boat to be tuned to the conditions on the day.
With E.T racing you are able to use any type of hull and engine combination to compete in your chosen bracket.
Racing generally starts at 10:30am and continues until 5:00pm.
We encourage a family environment with free entry for the kids with catering on site at very reasonable prices.
Please feel free to check this website regularly for race dates and other events as they develop.
We look forward to your company soon on the "Liquid Quarter Mile".
