NORWALK, Ohio -- Have you ever wondered what it takes to operate a professional racing team? How about the intricacies of designing, engineering and fabricating a jet engine-powered racecar? At every IHRA Nitro Jam event in 2014, fans will see all of that and more through a unique, interactive experience within the Larsen Motorsports Nitro Jam pit area.
The all-new Jet Racing Technology Center (JTC), presented by Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, will walk fans through what it takes to engineer, design, fabricate and even paint professional racecars. Now you can see actual future Larsen Motorsports Jet Dragsters built in front of your very own eyes.
"This is a complete redesign of the fan experience at IHRA national events. When fans come to a drag race, they want to be entertained both on and off the track. The new Jet Technology Center, along with the Hollywood Cars of the Stars and pit arrangement, will help us achieve that goal by providing a great product on the track, as well as a unique and fun experience in the pits," said Scott Gardner, President of IHRA Motorsports.
In the new JTC, fans will learn the intricacies of the General Electric J-85 engines used in jet racing with actual, full-size live cut-away jet engine demonstration models. See how the air flows through a jet engine. Learn how the flame-throwing afterburners that nearly double the thrust of an engine work. Learn from the engineers at Larsen Motorsports how chassis structures are designed and how the cars are aerodynamically engineered for stability and airflow at nearly 300 miles per hour.
Finally, see live paint work being done by Matrix Paint System artists and what it takes to keep the award winning Larsen Motorsports paint schemes attached to a jet dragster at nearly 300 miles per hour. Learn the tricks of the trade as some of the most talented airbrush artists in the world show you how to create amazing paint schemes.
