Tony Bryntesson with A-Fuel Team Sweden back to quarter mile racing

Jonny Lagg and Tony Bryntesson

The name Tony Bryntesson will not immediately ring a bell for the latest generation of drag race fans in Europe, but it will for the die-hard fans from the 1980s and 90s. After a career in several categories up to Top Fuel, the Swede made his last quarter mile runs in 1995 before switching to circuit racing and starting his own team in the V8 Thunder Car Series. But as has happened so many times before, the attraction of nitro and the quarter mile came back and thanks to Jonny Lagg, after a 25-year break, Bryntesson will be back in action and again in a nitro car, an A-Fueler in the FIA European Top Methanol Championship.

Full FIA Top Fuel tour for Susanne Callin

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.

Ida Zetterström chasing one and a half championship

Life is about making choices, even for reigning EDRS Pro Nordic MC Super Street Bike champion Ida Zetterström. After her best season ever, with new personal bests, a race win and the title, Zetterström will not be able to defend her title as she will do the full FIM Super Street Bike championship. Time and money-wise two championships in one year is too much this year. But no worries, the Finnish fan favourite can still be admired at the two Tierp Arena races and probably Gardermoen – three of the five rounds of the EDRS Pro Nordic Motorcycle Championship.
