The FIA European Drag Racing Championship reaches its climax with the European Finals at Santa Pod Raceway, the traditional grand finale of the season. In all four categories the championship still has to be decided and although in three classes the points leader has a clear advantage, it’s drag racing so anything can happen. In Top Fuel Antti Horto is the clear favourite to claim his first FIA European title, while in Pro Stock Jimmy Ålund can collect his 12th (!) FIA European title in this category.

Tricky conditions for the opening day of the 35th NitrOlympX, the largest drag racing event on the European main land with tens of thousands of tickets pre-sold for the meet. Spin and slip were notable by words coming out as the very fresh (the track hasn’t been used since 2019) surface took a bit of time to bed in with a secondary race against precipitation that was surrounding the track during the late afternoon and eventually dumped wet stuff to leave Top Fuel and Super Twin Bike without a second qualifier.
