Manage your transmission with precision in three rounds of flat-out sprints.
— In-game description

A Drag race is an event in Real Racing 3 where the player must manage their transmission for three rounds of flat-out quarter mile sprints. The player must tap the "launch" button once the round is signalled to begin, or the light turns green. If the player launches the car before any round begins, it will count as a False Start. Three false starts all together will result in disqualification from the race.

Players will have to operate the transmission manually by pressing the paddle shifters on the screen. If the player shifts at the correct time, it's a perfect shift. If the player however, shifts too early or too late (when in redline) it's an early shift and a late shift, respectively.

As players will be driving in a straight line, it's ideal that players choose cars that have good acceleration and top speed as characteristics such as braking and grip do not actually matter.
