Ida Zetterström born 1994 in Stockholm Sweden.

In July 2020 Ida became the first woman to ever clock a 6 second run in the Super Street Bike class, and in all classes driven on street tires / without wheelie bars, doing so with a new track record ET of 6.985s at 205.9mph.
The following event Ida clocked a stunning 6.885s making her the second quickest rider in Super Street Bike history at the time and it made the team the second team to ever get into the 6.8 second zone.
Ever since her start in jr. dragster, at the age of 8, the dream was always to race Top Fuel dragster, a dream that never died during the years of racing other classes.
Ida continued to work on making this dream come to true, and by 2020 the goal was clear and she contacted RF Motorsport and Rune Fjeld - who is well known for being the best at licensing new drivers for the Top Fuel class.
"With the help of great partners like Mstrand.ax and several more we have been able to make this possible. I've put all my effort into making my transition to Top Fuel and gaining as much experience as possible during 2021 to be ready to line up against Europe's greatest in 2022. I know I'm a rookie, but the RF Motorsport team behind me sure aren't and it feels great to have their support as I enter this new chapter of my racing career and get to live out my biggest dream"
Ida started her licensing at Bug Jam 2021 where she made all runs needed except for one full pass, she therefore returned to complete her license at the Euro Finals Shootout. At the Euro Finals the team got the full pass needed to complete her license and they did so in a stunning 3.862 seconds, the quickest licensing pass ever. With 3.862 seconds Zetterström rocketed into the number four spot of quickest Top Fuel drivers in Europe.
In the first official FIA Event of 2022 Ida and the team set a new European record of 3.782 seconds and by that they where the first team to ever clock a 3.7 second pass in Europe.
In the second race of the 2022 season Ida and the team found themself in the winners circle for the first time in an FIA Championship event, as they took home the Top Fuel win at Tierp Arena.
In December 2022 Ida was acknowledged on Drag Illustrated prestigious 30 under 30 list, highlighting the most influential people in dragracing.
At the first event of the European FIA Championship at Santa Pod 2023 Ida and the team reset their own European ET record with a 3.773s pass while also taking over the new European Speed record of 321mph. Ida and the team then went on to win the event. An impressive start to what came to be a very impressive season, that later in the year ended with the overall Top Fuel Championship victory.
