September already and the drag racing season is drawing to a close. What better way to wrap up the European series than with one of the best, if not the best, meetings I have ever seen. The weather conditions on Saturday and Sunday were perfect and to reflect this the number of records and personal bests broken was unreal! In qualifying on Saturday, which I watched via live feed, the Top Fuel Bike world record came within 1/100th of a second of falling not once but twice as ‘Fast Fil’ from Greece ran two 5.66 sec passes. The European Top Fuel E.T record was lowered to 3.806 by Norway’s Maja Udtain. And the Pro Mods just keep on getting quicker.
Race Day on Sunday and it’s a different mindset. Now is the time to get to the other end of the 1/4 mile first yet still the times were phenomenal. Apart from 2019 champ Anita Makela the Top Fuel cars struggled to get the power down and several very expensive engines went bang. With few major clean-ups the day flew by. Roll on next season. As usual there are more images and results on my HOME page https://blhphotoblog.wordpress.com/portfolio/drag-racing-2019/
