  • 15/Oct/2009 MoTeC-equipped Top Fueller takes surprise win at Euro Drag Finals

Santa Pod Raceway in Northants, England, recently hosted the 2009 FIA European Drag Racing Finals, an event that the McDonald Brothers Top Fuel team won't forget in a hurry. With a little help from MoTeC and UK dealer Electronic Performance Systems (EPS), the team put two years of mediocre results behind them to win the round in emphatic, if unexpected, style.

The difference was a conversion to a MoTeC data system. An SDL Sport Dash Logger and E888 expansion module were expertly installed by David Rowe of EPS, who designed a custom wiring loom that made use of the existing sensors and fuel flow meters.

After so long without data, the team was thrilled with the sudden abundance of information about the car, and with David’s assistance used this knowledge to slingshot themselves into contention. An impressive qualifying pass secured third place for driver Jon Webster, who went on to blitz the finals against more seasoned opponents with a combination of speed and reliability.

MoTeC congratulates the McDonald Brothers team, Jon Webster and Electronic Performance Systems on a fantastic result. We hope those times continue to tumble!
