PTTM DRAGRACING TEAM - FIA EUROPEAN PRO MOD CHAMPIONSHIP
PTTM Drag racing & Vegter pro mod racing joined forces in 2016 and since 2017 we now race completely under the PTTM drag racing team flag! and is owned and managed by Vegter & PTTM.
PTTM Speedshop will remain one of the main sponsors for the coming years as for them its a way to keep improving there engine and car building department and to stay in touch with there clients and fans from all over Europe. But otherwise PTTM Dragracing and PTTM Muscle car performance are 2 different entities.
The team races throughout Europe in the FIA Pro-modified European drag race championship with a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro that's running a 3500 HP Blown Hemi V8 engine that runs on Methanol fuel. Its a very competitive class with more than 30 cars and teams from all over Europa and the difference between winning or loosing can be with only a thousand! of a second difference. Its all about finding the right set up of the car and to get grip on the prepped race track. Its for sure one of the most spectacular race classes by far and really high-tech.
The driver is the well known and experienced Dutch racer, David Vegter. The complete car, engine, and equipment are developed and maintained by the PTTM Drag racing team. Over the years many new details were added and changed to the car, the engine was rebuilt and improved, the chassis got many upgrades and we mounted a lightweight hood and new doors to the car. We are constantly making improvements and put a lot of energy in our car and team efforts. A new team truck and race trailer was bought and upgraded in 2018 as well.
Our best overall position sofar was 3th place in the European FIA championship.
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 car 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 main goal is to be not only the fastest Fia Pro mod car in Holland... or fastest blower car in Europe.. as we already made these goals, but to win the European championship! and bring the cup back to Holland for the first time in drag racing history.But thats not an easy task.
Our personal best 1/4 mile ET is a 5,80! sofar and more to come. Currently were Europa's fastest Pro mod car with a Blower engine.
