Team:
Best ET: 6.394 seconds

Marko used Brad Anderson motive power to secure 9th place in last year’s FIA Championship. One of the smaller engine capacities on this weekend’s entry list --- 511 cubic inches, a mere 8.3 litres --- has earned the ‘Vette stout performance figures of 6.39sec./219mph.

At May’s Main Event (MSA Rnd. 2), Marko qualified provisionally 12th (6.74) before rain curtailed the action. In July’s FIA races in Scandinavia, he qualified 13th (6.68) at Alastaro, Finland, and won his opening match of eliminations before rain again stopped play. At Mantorp Park, Sweden, he qualified 14th (6.59) in Europe’s quickest-ever Pro Mod field but lost his first-round match despite a stronger, 6.43/219mph effort.
