"Cutting good lights"? or "Getting good lights"?

What does it mean? This is in connection with drag racing.


Which grand prix of this season do you think is going to be most exciting?

On the christmas tree, there are 3 amber lights that light up in .5 second incraments if you cut a good light it means you left the stage beams close to the exact moment the light turned green. A perfect reaction is .000 or .500 depending on how your timing system prints it.

This is where "cutting good lights" comes in handy:
If I had a .050 reaction time and had an et of 6.50 seconds and you had a .000 reaction time and ran a 6.54 et. You would have crossed the finish line exactly 1 hundreth of a second in front of me even though you had the slower elapsed time.

What is the music played after the trophies are presented at formula 1 races?

If you can leave the starting line right at the same time as the light goes green, that means you cut a good light. It's also known as reaction time. To me, this is THE most important thing for a drag racer to be good at. The car does the rest of the work after the light goes green.
