Street Week 2021 was carried out as planned during Week 28. Many had eagerly awaited the opportunity to experience the competition again since it was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. The last time it took place was in 2019, so many have been able to prepare well for this year’s race, but still, many registered participants had to give up their plans as the decision to proceed was made late and close to the start date, precisely because of the pandemic and the authorities’ late approval of this type of event.

FordMustangMagazine had the honor of participating in Street Week, which since 2017 has become a recurring drag racing competition with street-legal enthusiast cars. 200 pre-registered competitors are to clock the fastest time possible on the 201-meter-long tracks during the week. There are 10 classes with divisions based on type of propulsion, engine, tire/wheel size, and fuel available for the competitor to choose from.

Between the five tracks, there are a total of 1500km transport stretches with checkpoints. The competing cars are required to be driven between them. Spare parts and tools to be used must be transported with the competition car. Therefore, it must be approved and insured to be driven on public roads.

“Three runs per track where the fastest time is taken to provide the best average time from the five tracks. Participants drive individually against the clock but start in pairs regardless of the class they belong to.”

Street Week is a spectator sport where everyone is welcome to watch the competitors push their hand-prepared cars to go as fast as possible over 201 meters. It’s all about cars, high tempo, high tech, speed, and excitement. More information is available on the Street Week website.
