Welcome to the Front Wheel Drive Drag Series

The FWD Drag Series is a full MSA sanctioned Championship, the racer who wins the championship will have battled and fought their way through five tough rounds, racing against the best European and Japanese cars the UK FWD scene has to offer.


The first season of the FWD Drag Series in 2013 was a huge success, it surpassed all expectations and produced some very exciting racing with many record breaking runs. Keil Priestman won the championship, Richard Batty ran the first UK FWD 8 second pass and Tom Barnes set a World Record for a New Mini. The 2014 Championship was won by Sam Bolton and Robert Johnston who raced their Tigra as a team, Richard Batty was runner-up for the second year running. 2015 saw Glenn Robson take the title with a race to spare ahead of Paul Atkinson. In 2016 Allan Duthie was champion in his first season and in 2017 Paul Atkinson finished the season in the number one spot after two years as runner-up.
