World leading automotive design company Futura has felt the need for speed, sponsoring one of the UK’s Drag Racing legends Roy Wilding as he competes in the 2014 Supercharged Outlaws Category.
Roy will be competing at Santa Pod Raceway near Northampton and Shakespeare Raceway near Stratford-upon-Avon with the Dragstalgia on July 11th-13th and the Nostalgia Nationals kicking off from June 20th-22nd.
Having competed for more than 25 years Roy is now also considered one of the finest tuners and builders in the country, his current car being entirely his own work. Roy said ‘I build my own cars to keep costs down, but I also end up building cars for other racers so I can end up racing against my own work!’
Depending on the state of tuning Roy’s car is at, it can produce anything from 1,500 – 2,500hp which is enough to see it cover the standing ¼ mile in just 7.7 seconds whilst attaining a terminal speed of 187mph.
Paul Cadman, Managing Director of the Futura Group said, ‘We are delighted to be sponsoring Roy this season. Dragster racing is a real spectacle; incredibly quick and an astonishing assault on your ear drums! It’s the perfect day out for petrol heads and we’d welcome any of our Futura clients along to watch the action.’
