Drag Race Europe Press Release – 7th June 2021
After many months of delay and uncertainty on a final decision regarding the 2021 FIA European Drag Racing Championship at the Tierp Arena (Sweden) in August and Santa Pod (UK) in September we have along with the FIA reached a decision that even a 2-round FIA Shootout Cup will not be possible to hold due to the covid-19 restrictions with travel and quarantine regulations.
Although the FIA European Drag Racing Championship was already a non-starter due to cancelation of all the rounds in the UK, Sweden, Finland and Germany, we had hoped to be able to hold an FIA Cup over the two late summer rounds in Sweden and England. This is no longer feasible.
The current plan is that each venue (Tierp and Santa Pod) will hold their own events under ASN national rules and permits, making them both now National Events. Any international teams wishing to attend each event are welcome as always.
DRE will now be concentrating on setting up the 2022 FIA European Drag Racing Championship, which we all hope will be campaigned over 6 rounds. Additionally, the management of DRE are also in discussion with the FIM to bring the FIM European Drag Bike Championship alongside the FIA European Drag racing Championship at all rounds in 2022.
