The up-coming events for the 2013 FIA European Drag Race Championship is soon to come, and RF Motorsport enters the competitions as defending champions with Norwegian teamowner and crewchief Rune Fjeld in charge. We will participate in all six championship rounds with 3 race cars, and feeling stronger than ever. All 3 dragsters have gone through serious inspections and Rune has been working hard throughout the winter to make sure the cars are up for some serious competition. The 2013 drivers will be the same strong line-up as last year, with Risto Poutiainen, Jari Halinen, Antti Horto and Duncan Micallef. We all hope for an exiting year and wish all our fans and competitors welcome and good luck!
