After a 14-year break from the FIA European Top Fuel Championship, Susanne Callin made her comeback last season to see if the feeling was still there and if driving a Top Fuel car was really what she missed so much in all those years. Everybody knew the answer in advance and as expected, after only two runs there was the confirmation. As a result, the comeback is definite and Callin will do the full FIA European Top Fuel Championship in 2020! “Testing days are over and I am all in!” said a determined Susanne Callin.

We at Speedgroup were very sorry to hear of the death of former Top Methanol racer and multiple European champion Peter Schöfer.
‘He was a motor athlete with body and soul. The ‘Pat’, as his friends and everyone called him, has achieved a lot in his far too short life. He was a multiple European champion in motorcycle and drag racing. He won many tough fights on the racetrack, but unfortunately he lost his last fight, an unfair fight against cancer. We all hope that where he is now, he will find beautiful racetracks and fair opponents. We will never forget you and honour what you have built.
In eternal beloved memory
Moni, Luna, Sinah, Nicolai
Rudi, Wolfgang, Christina
Rebecca, Leoni, Thomas
Our deepest condolences go out to Peter’s family and friends,
The board and everybody involved in Speedgroup
Rest in Peace Peter, it was an honour to have known you, to see you and your team race all over Europe and take so many pictures of you during your great career,

After two seasons taking part in only a few Pro Stock races a year, Jimmy Ålund was back for a full season in 2019 in the category he loves the most. And his opponents knew it, as Ålund immediately claimed the title, his 11th FIA European Pro Stock Championship, and a Pro Modified title included, his 12th in total! The Summit Racing Camaro driver won three races and finished as the runner-up two times to claim the title with a 155-point advantage over Robin Norén. As the icing on the cake of a great 2019 season, Ålund, European Pro Stock speed record holder since 2015, also claimed the European Pro Stock ET record back. Continue reading
