    Survivor guide: How safe is drag racing?


    Statistically, the sport of drag racing appears to be more dangerous than getting on an aeroplane. The risks involved can, however, be mitigated by only participating in legitimate races where the environment is controlled and cars and drivers undergo strict safety checks; using appropriate safety equipment and approaching this adrenaline-pumping sport with reasonable intelligence.

    Drag racing accidents

    Regardless of safety equipment and procedures, drag racing is a motor sport and subsequently carries an ever-present risk of serious, potentially even fatal personal injuries. Racers are subsequently required to adhere to specific safety protocols and use their common sense while driving.

    Road traffic accidents

    As with accidents on the road, injuries by car crashes involving high speeds have a tendency to be far more serious than those sustained at lower speeds. Considering the speeds involved in straight-line drag racing, this means drivers essentially take their lives into their own hands every time they participate in a race.

    Driver injury compensation

    If you were injured while drag racing because another driver acted inappropriately or because adequate necessary safety checks were not carried out, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. Your eligibility to claim compensation may be established by filling in the 30-second test (or compensation calculator) provided on the website belonging to Accident Advice Helpline.

    Conditional fee agreement

    No win no fee* (often also referred to as conditional fee) agreements basically mean claimants are not required to make any payment towards legal, solicitor’s or other fees until their compensation has been secured. Once the awarded amount has been paid, a percentage is deducted to cover all costs incurred during the claim process. The advantage of this is that claiming for compensation no longer means adding extra financial worries to what is undoubtedly already a stressful, financially worrying time.
