New design and new colours for Vegter Pro Mod Racing

With renewed energy and a brand new design, Vegter Pro Mod Racing were ready to face any competitor and to go for the 2020 FIA European Pro Modified Championship title. But COVID-19 was an invisible enemy nobody was able to beat this year. The FIA European Drag Racing Championship was cancelled and the Vegter Pro Mod Racing ’67 Chevrolet Camaro  stayed in the workshop. “We were more than ready for it. During the first couple of months we updated the car and we had high expectations for the new season. But unfortunately, there wasn’t a new season. Because we can’t do it at the race track and we still want to show the fans at least something this year, we are revealing the new design and new colours of our team in this way,” said David Vegter, driver of the Vegter Pro Mod Racing Camaro.

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.
