Ida Zetterström born 1994 in Stockholm Sweden. 

 

Grew up in her dad's workshop and at the racetrack with her family as her father raced classes such as pro stock and pro modified or worked with other race teams.

 

At the age of 8 Ida started racing Jr Dragsters and had a great career. 

At the age of 16 Ida got her Super Comp Dragster license.

2017 Ida started racing in the class Super Street Bike, the European version of the US class Pro Street Bike.

2019 the team competed in the Scandinavian championship with a new bike, known as Lucky #13. Starting the season of good setting several personal bests and qualified top 3 almost every race of the season.

The second race of the championship ended with the teams first final round appearance and a second place finish.

The third race in the championship ended with the teams very first win, making Ida the first woman to ever win in the Scandinavian Super Street Bike class.

The final race of the year ended with a second place finish in the event and the team also stood as the overall winners in the Scandinavian championship.

Making Ida the first woman to ever win a Super Street Bike championship. 

Ida also received the VP Racing Fuels Special Award for the racer with most notable achievements in 2019.

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 and without wheelie bars, doing so at 6.985s and 205.9mph. 

The following race Ida rode a stunning 6.885s making her the second fastest rider in Super Street Bike history at that time and it made the the team the second team to 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 who is well known for being the best at licensing new drivers for this class.

 

"With the help of great partners like Mstrand.ax and several more we have been able to make this possible and 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. 

" I work hard every day to improve every aspect of my racing.

whether it's working on my social media skills, visit exhibitions, listen to podcasts, answering messages from followers, being in the garage working on my bike or work out to be in my best shape; Everything I do, I do to get better"
