The drag strip uses the back straight of the circuit for the second half of the timed distance and the braking area. The drag strip is approximately 460 m (1500 feet) above sea level, and runs NE to SW. It is a full 1/4 mile drag strip, with approximately 650 m of braking (2130 feet, more than 3/16 mile) before the turn at the end. The drag strip surface is concrete from the 'waterbox' out to approximately 30 m (90 feet) from the startline, with fine-grade asphalt for the rest of the track.

The venue boasts very large garages with lighting and power, and very good toilet and shower facilities in the pits. The entire pit area is sealed, there is a cafe on site, and other food vendors may attend. Camping is available all year round.
