PTTM DRAGRACING TEAM

 

PTTM Drag racing & Vegter pro mod racing joined forces in 2016 and since 2017 we now race completely under the PTTM drag racing flag! A completely new car design is coming soon during the 2017 season. PTTM Speedshop will remain one of the main sponsors for the coming years as for them is a way to keep improving there engine and car building department and to stay in touch with there clients and fans.

The team races throughout Europe in the FIA Pro-modified European drag race championship with a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro that's running a 3000+HP Blown Hemi V8 engine that runs on Methanol fuel. The driver is the well known Dutch racer, David Vegter. The complete car, engine, and equipment are developed and maintained by the PTTM Drag racing team. Many new details were added and changed to the car, the engine was rebuilt and improved, the chassis got its upgrades and we mounted a lightweight hood and new doors to the car.

Seeing we want to keep going faster this is a process that never stops !. Besides the car, we also invested in a new team trailer and truck which is a huge asset to the team and the transportation of our team throughout Europe. The race car can be called one of the fastest muscle cars on the planet, as the car is good for speeds close to 400 KMH within the 1/4 mile and that's all done in under 6 seconds. That's fast!. Our personal best ET is a 5,85 sofar and more to come !

2016 Season

 

The goal for the near future is to get the first European championship title in Pro modified drag racing to Holland!. For that, the team gets a new engine and blower set-up and many other improvements. The first Test & tune of the new set-up was tested successfully at Malmo raceway Sweden and the first race event in 2016 was at Santapod. Later on, in the 2016 season, a new personal record for the car and team was set with the first ever 5 second! pass with an end speed of almost 400 kmh was set at the Tierp Dragrace arena in Sweden. Something only a select few Pro mod teams ever set in their careers. The 2016 season was closed off with a successful 5th place overall and with that team, PTTM/Vegter was the best Dutch Pro-mod team this year.

 

For next year the hunt is on for a position in the top three and it looks promising in this otherwise highly competitive race class. PTTM will follow and support the team closely and we will present updates here on Facebook and on our website. If your a drag race fan and plan on visiting one of the many FIA race events, be sure to watch PTTM and David and his team closely and give them your support! A new 2017 Race calendar will follow here soon! Stay tuned!

 

 

 

2017 season

The season of 2017 was a pretty good year for PTTM Drag racing. Pedal to the metal joined team Vegter so that David Vegter could focus more on his racing performance and Pedal to the metal could help with all sorts of management tasks and marketing tasks for the team. The team is now called Pedal to the metal Dragracing, or short PTTM Drag racing. The car got a new look, and we also got new team outfits to fit with the car. The first race at Santa pod was a very good weekend for PTTM Drag racing. With two qualifying races with 6.1 seconds on the clock were decent. But the two races after were even better with 5.99 seconds on the clock and a 5.98 which became David Vegter his personal record. After this five 5.9 second runs followed. Only a hand few drives matched this. 
 
The races in Alastro ended eventually after really good races in the half finales. The engine took some damage and could not start at the finales. Although we didn't start at the finales PTTM Dragracing took the second place in the overall Pro Mod championships. At Santa Pod PTTM Drag racing made it to the finals again. And we ended with the third place in the championship! Last year we ended at the fifth place, so there is an improvement compared to the last season. 
 
Who knows! We might go to the first place next year!
