Russian Drag Racing… 105 Years Ago

Posted on May 18, 2014 by tim


In 1909, the Russian magazine “Automobile” reported on a car race. The length of the route was one VERSTA – the unit of distance that is not used anymore and which was 1066 meters – roughly one kilometer. Cars, mopeds and motorbikes took part in the race. It’s not clear who won and which car brand was fastest at that race, but its relatively short distance might allow us to call it the first drag race in the history of Russia.
