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
The EDRS Pro series and the EDRS Pro Nordic Motorcycle Championship are the top of the bill of the drag racing series operated by Speedgroup. After a great 2019 season, it’s now time to look forward to an even more exciting 2020 championship, expanded to five races this year. Continue reading
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
Peter Östlund was the only rider in the 2019 EDRS Pro Nordic Motorcycle Championship who was able to retain his title. In 2018 the Pipenracing rider claimed his first title in convincing style and was again a force to be reckoned with from the very first moment the 2019 season got underway. This time the competition was even tougher and Östlund had to fight until the quarter finals of the last race to be sure of his title extension. And let it be a warning for his opponents, Östlund is still hungry for more and will be back aiming for a third consecutive SCB title. Continue reading
To keep the family tradition alive, it was Heikki-Juhani Koskinen’s turn in 2019 to claim the EDRS Pro Nordic MC Super Gas Bike title, after his brother Janne won this championship in 2016. Heikki-Juhani was close to winning the title several times, with a runner-up position in 2017 as his provisional best. Scoring points in all four races, with two semi-final finishes as his season’s highlights, were the key to winning his first EDRS Pro Nordic MC title. Continue reading
As the reigning champion, Anita Mäkelä was challenged several times this season. But with four race wins, one runner-up position, numerous 3-second runs and only losing two elimination runs out of six events, Mäkelä claimed her second consecutive FIA European Top Fuel title and her fourth in total. The Tommi & Anita Top Fuel Racing dragster will bear that number 1 with pride again in 2020 and the team will do everything they can to repel all the attacks of the up-and-coming competition.
