2018 Race Round up - Speed Matters!

As Steeda celebrate our 30th anniversary, we also celebrate another great year of proving that "The Steeda Difference" matters on track. 

It's where we earned our great reputation for performance and quality and its not something we rest on our laurels about. Steeda keep on developing and keep on testing our theories on track. As Dario Orlando says, "The race track is a great place to prove your theories, as results do not lie!" Not only that but life on track is TOUGH, and its the fact that Steeda parts are built for the rigours of track life that allow us to offer our unrivalled LIFETIME warranty on so many parts. Just one of many benefits that goes straight from the track to benefit you, our great customers.

2018 was another great year for Steeda both on the road racing circuits AND on the drag strips and that winning pedigree has begun to spread into Europe with Steeda making our mark over here as well.

In the US, the Steeda Q500R wrapped up an impressive SAARC Championship win wheeled by both Dario and Vice President Glen Vitale. Not wanting to miss out on the action our head of manufacturing Scott Boda commanded the efforts on the drag strip and wheeled the Steeda "Silver Bullet" into the record books multiple times. He is currently deep into the 10s in an NA all motor 2018 GT automatic. Now THAT is fast! It shows what Steeda upgrades can do simply bolted on... No huge money engine builds, complex nitrous or anything mad... Power means nothing without traction.... (of course we helped the power too with our new 2018 CAI and tunes though)

Famous US based tuner Lund chose Steeda for their more extreme 2018 drag build and with Steeda traction too it to an amazing record grabbing 7.78 @ 177mph!

In Europe things were going just as well....

In the UK, Matt Binstead has been crushing the Clubman class in Time Attack 2018 in his Steeda sponsored Fiesta.

On the Drag Strip at Santa Pod, Europe's home of drag racing, the RWYB Championship was won by David Kinghorn in a S550 GT with Steeda Stop The Hop package for traction plus a Steeda Race Shifter to make sure he never missed a gear!  David was chased onto the top step by Owen Waddingham ANOTHER Steeda customer with a Stop The Hop equipped Mustang GT, who finished a very respectable 4th place. So that's Steeda equipped Mustangs in 2 of the top 4 positions on an OPEN Championship where any car can apply. Great work fellas, go Team! David also proves that fitting Steeda parts doesn't cost money it makes money! Its an investment! (honest).

And remember to post up YOUR best times on our EU / UK Drag BOARD- They dont have to be world beating, just post your best and compare and keep updating as you improve...


Our great dealer in the Czech Republic Auto IN also put in work on the track, organising a fantastic track excursion and track test, where their Steeda equipped demo car, absolutely crushed a Shelby GT350 and a stock OEM Mustang to prove the "Steeda Difference". They used 3 cars on track, all driven by the same driver for a real comparison, and the Steeda car was 2.7 seconds a lap faster than the stock 2018 Mustang and 2 seconds a lap faster than the Shelby GT350

Our motto isnt "Speed Matters!" for nothing. Steeda live it every day...

Also please remember. Keep YOUR racing safe, on the track or at the strip but NOT on the road.

If you want to start getting a feel for off road driving and seeing what your Fast Ford can do, why not JOIN US on our next STEEDA DRIVING EXPERIENCE ON JUNE 29th. 2019?
You can't have more fun in your car and you can meet the Steeda UK team and fellow Steeda fans and compare cars and times.
