Talking with Racers...
Urs Erbacher
Without doubt, Urs Erbacher is one of the most charismatic European drag racers of the last two decades. With three consecutive FIA European Top Methanol Funny Car titles to his credit, the Swiss driver stepped up to Top Fuel and grabbed that title in his second year of competition. The fan favourite’s next step was America where Urs reached the semi finals of the 2008 NHRA Finals at Pomona. But now he is back -- a man with only one mission: to regain the FIA European Top Fuel crown and to be the King of All again!

Bouncing Back...
David Vegter
Mixed feelings for David Vegter when talking about Santa Pod Raceway and the start of the new season.

Only a camouflage suit is missing, replaced by the green and white colours of Castrol Team Force. Where dragstrip traction is concerned, Lanny Miglizzi is the recognised authority.

With Rob Turner behind the wheel the team will run the full FIA European Championship while brother and tuner Steve will take over the driving duties of their well-known Top Methanol Dragster. It’s a major undertaking for the small, family-owned team.
