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.

The registration for the Tierp Internationals is open! The Tierp Internationals is one of the major events at Tierp Arena.

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.

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,
With immediate effect, David Vegter will be back on track under his own familiar team name Vegter Pro Mod Racing. The Dutchman will once again compete in the FIA European Pro Modified Championship, the championship in which Vegter was so successful in recent years. “The crew will be the same and we are updating the Camaro at the moment. We’re going for it with renewed energy and we are going to make it a great season,” said a driven David Vegter. Continue reading
