FiA Main Event
2012
Left:
Risto Poutiainen had a
pretty good weekend.
He qualified at the top
of the tree in Top Fuel
with a 4.1014 second
293 mph pass. As if that
wasn’t good enough, he
went on to win the
event.
Considering the difficult
conditions that pre-
vailed over the week-
end, with that kind of
performance we would-
n’t be surprised to see
the first 300 mph pass
over 1,000 feet some-
time this season.
In this image you can
see the blower belt has
just parted company
with Risto’s motor.
Below (centre): After dis-
patching Kev Slyfield,
Rober Joosten and Gra-
ham Ellis, Bruno Bader
found himself with a bye
run in the final. So he
took a gentle run down
the track to take the
event win.
Below:
Thomas Lindström
recorded a speed of
207.95 mph in the semi
finals of Pro
Stock, which is a
new speed
record for the
class. He also
won the event.
The track was
clearly in good
shape!
Above: Ian King qualified in the number
one spot and then beat Rikard Gustafs-
son in the final round of UEM Top Fuel
Bike. Here we see him talking to Daryl
