DRE in conjunction with the FIA is pleased to announce a 6-round championship calendar for the 2021 FIA European Drag Racing Championship (EDRC). This is subject to the final approval of the FIA World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) when it next meets in mid-December. The calendar is released with the assumption that COVID-19 restrictions are making it possible, e.g. allowing travel, spectators on events.
The FIA European Drag Racing Championship, will return to competition in 2021, having been forced into a one-year hiatus, due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. DRE has worked closely with the track organisers and the FIA to put together the 2021 calendar. We all look forwards to being able to return to a full FIA European Drag Racing Championship in 2021.
The Championship rounds will be as follows:
Rnd 1. SANTA POD RACEWAY (UK) 28th-31st May
Rnd2. TIERP ARENA (SWEDEN) 10th -13th June
Rnd 3. * KAUHAVA (FINLAND) 8th -10th July
Rnd 4. TIERP ARENA (SWEDEN) 12th-15th August
Rnd 5. HOCKENHEIMRING (GERMANY) 27th-29th August
Rnd 6. SANTA POD RACEWAY (UK) 9th -12th September
* Limited to TF and PM only
While the announcement of the calendar is the first step in the process, it is important to stress that conditions that permit the attendance of spectators to return to events will need to be in place for any of the competitions to go ahead.
All rounds originally scheduled on the 2020 calendar will return next year, with Finland’s Kauhava also coming back to the FIA EDRC schedule following its 2019 debut to bring the number of events to six. The Finnish event will however be open to only the Top Fuel and Pro Modified categories, while all four FIA EDRC categories will run at each of the other five rounds.
See you all at the track
PS. It is possible to select the English sub title version for non-Swedish speaking viewers.
