Top Alcohol refers to two different classes in professional drag racing: Top Alcohol Dragster and the Top Alcohol Funny Car. Commonly known as "alky" cars, both are akin in design to the premier Top Fuel classes, but less powerful (about 3,500 bhp (2,600 kW; 3,500 PS)).
The information is for school, I have chosen to do an assignment on different classes in drag racing. I have managed to find information about all other classes I am working on eg top fuel dragster, jnr dragster etc, but the problem I am having is the Top Alcohol Funny Car and Dragster.
A top fuel dragster accelerates from a standstill to 100 mph (160 km/h) in as little as 0.8 seconds (less than one third the time required by a production Porsche 911 Turbo to reach 60 mph (100 km/h)) and can exceed 280 mph (450 km/h) in just 660 feet (200 m).
