A Top Doorslammer-report from Andreas Sjödin-who is preparing for Finals at Gardermoen Raceway right now!

Top Doorslammer round 4 at Sundsvall Raceway wasn’t our weekend, track was too tricky! (And not just for us, it was the first time ever I heard JR Dragster team complain about a track condition) I really wanted it to be better than it was and tried too much! And then it also ended early in elimination round one against Kenneth Lingvald with broken crank blower pulley bolts 2.2 seconds out when I finally took away enough power to go down the track!…

Santa Pod Raceway welcomes the FIA European Championship grand finale

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. In Pro Modified Jan Ericsson is the points leader, but the reigning champion can’t afford any mistake in England.

FIM-E Dragbike championship, NitrOlympX, Friday, Rico Anthes Quarter Mile, Hockenheim, Germany

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.
