Race fans remember Bruno as “the guy with the Golden Vette”, always a popular car at Santa Pod. The potential apparent in Bruno’s beautiful Gotham City Corvette at the start of 2007 suggested he should soon lower his personal best ET from last year’s 6.45.

This year he has hit consistent 6.5s – a 6.56 to qualify provisionally 9th at May’s rained-out Main Event (MSA Rnd. 2) followed by a trip to July’s FIA race at Alastaro, Finland, where he qualified 7th (6.52) and won his first-round match (6.53) before, once again, rain stopped play.

At Mantorp Park, Sweden, Bruno reached his first semi-final in Europe’s quickest-ever Pro Mod field, clocking a pair of 6.47s and a then career-best 215.26mph. His performance figures at Santa Pod’s FIA European Finals were better still, 6.371/218.38 to qualify 9th before reaching the 2nd round.
