FIA European Drag Racing Championships Inc FIM Drag Bike

Britain’s Chris Andrews won the headline Top Fuel Dragster race at Santa Pod Raceway’s FIA European Finals on Sunday. A packed house saw the rising young star deliver his Lucas Oil Dragster’s best performance of the event – 4.220 seconds at 292.05mph – to defeat Denmark’s Stig Neergaard in the final and earn his maiden victory in drag racing’s premier class.

Andrews survived a critical moment in the semi-final. Newly-crowned European champion Thomas Nataas unleashed the event’s strongest run – 4.031sec at a track-record 305.04mph – against him but was instantly disqualified for a false start.

Switzerland’s Bruno Bader produced the finest Pro Modified performance ever seen in Britain to win the combined FIA European/MSA British Championship round. Bader returns to Santa Pod in two week’s time when a nail-biting MSA British Championship decider tops the bill at the National Finals (21-22 September).
