Top FuelTop Fuel Dragsters
This weekend it is exactly a year since Top Fuel cars last scorched the Santa Pod concrete. Pandemic quarantines permitting, we are delighted to welcome back two seasoned campaigners to hit the loud pedal. Susanne Callin supported by Draper Tools (UK), uniquely distinguished as the world’s first 300mph teenager, returned to action last year after a 14-year family-life break. Like Susanne, Antti Horto (Finland) began racing life in a Junior Dragster. He has two FIA Top Fuel wins to his credit and finished championship runner-up in 2018. (All Days)
