History

Speedgroup was founded in 2006 by a group of race teams from the European Drag Racing Championship. Besides sharing a passion for Drag Racing they had the vision to develop the championship and desire to work with it. Throughout time and with a new board of directors Speedgroup priorities changed from being a team interest organization to administrate and develop the European Drag Racing Championship and over time we have acquired more Series and Championships into our daily operation.
