Midgley looks forward to Euro Finals.
Following UK Top Fuel Bike rider Neil Midgley’s successful test session at the ACU UK Championship Greenlight Nationals, the Colchester based rider is looking forward to competing in anger at the weekend’s FIM European Finals at Santa Pod Raceway, England.
Following riding position enhancements and a number of subtle streamlining adjustments Midgley has made steady progress in getting to grips of the multi-championship winning Puma Engineering constructed machine currently operated under the King Racing & Cannon Motorsports collaboration.
Midgley ran a string of 1/eighth mile times in the 3.9 second zones and a best of 6.10 over the quarter mile with a soft tune and `lazy’ clutch and felt at ease with the control.
Although Midgley is not in the running for the 2022 FIM European Championship crown, his competitive presence amongst his fellow Puma powered Top Fuel bikes of Sweden’s Rikard Gustafsson and Rene van den Berg of the Netherlands who are both in contention bodes well for an exciting Championship Finale.
The 2022 FIM European Dragbike Championship finals are to be held on the 9th – 11th September at Santa Pod Raceway, England. Details of the event can be found here: https://santapod.co.uk/european-finals.php
