ALAND ISLANDS, FINLAND (September 12, 2023) — Ida Zetterström and team RFMotorsport doubled up at Santa Pod Raceway, taking home the event win at the final FIA Top Fuel race of the year and securing the 2023 European Championship title with a 120-point lead over runner-up Susanne Callin. The event win was Zetterström’s fourth of the season, three of them being FIA events.
“We just doubled up in the Edelbrock Performance Top Fuel at Santa Pod Raceway by winning the European Finals with a 3.91 in the dark and taking home the European Championship title,” said Zetterström. “I am incredibly proud of my RFMotorsports team and the performance we have shown this year, losing only one round all year, earning numerous No. 1 qualifiers, running consistently, and taking home the European records for both speed and ET as well as the overall Championship. Thank you to all our partners for an incredible year and now we’re going celebrate this championship.”

Zetterström and her team were consistently strong and showed their pace straight from the start by setting two new European records at the first event of the season with a 3.77 second ET record and a new European speed record of 321.01 mph. The finals were delayed Sunday night after bad weather found its way to the track in the afternoon and pushed the last rounds of racing up by several hours. Zetterström and her team were able to maintain their focus and take another win and the championship.
