MSA British Drag Racing Championship
Marc Meihuizen

Marc Meihuizen

Car: '37 Chevrolet Business Coupe
Occupation: Transport company owner
Home Town/Country: IJmuiden, Netherlands
Team: K&H Racing
Best ET: 6.260 seconds
Best Terminal Speed: 224.01mph
Netherlands

Marc finished 8th in 2006’s FIA Championship with a personal best ET of 6.368 seconds. For 2007, he replaced his Chevy motor with a brand new Quest Racing Hemi, equipped with a PSI twin-screw blower.

At May’s Main Event (MSA Rnd. 2), Marc qualified provisionally 8th (6.46) before rain stopped play. At June’s Summer Nationals (MSA Rnd. 3), he broke during qualifying. Damage repaired, he headed to Scandinavia for July’s FIA races. At Alastaro, Finland, he qualified 10th (6.63) but lost his opening-round eliminations match. At Mantorp Park, Sweden, he fractionally improved his career-best marks (6.366/220.79) to qualify 6th in Europe’s quickest-ever Pro Mod field but again lost in the first round.

During qualifying at Santa Pod’s FIA European Finals (MSA Rnd. 4), Marc improved his career-best ET twice and his terminal speed three times to finish in 4th spot (6.260sec. and 224.01mph). Once again the first-round blues struck and he slipped to defeat against eventual race winner Patrik Wikström.
