Belle Wheeler – Junior Dragster Racer
Belle – Born September 2003 (10). www.bellewheeler.co.uk
Belle has been around drag racing since older sister Paige started in 2009. Belle had been desperate to have a go but the youngest age you can start is age 8. With this in mind Paige’s old dragster was re-configured for Belle. A new engine from the USA and a false floor added to bring Belle’s tiny feet high enough for the pedals!
Belle was booked in for a test day aged 8 years and 1 day; she did three passes in her dragster recording 0.0 something reaction times. Belle was observed by the Race Director for her licence and then we drove to the MSA HQ to get Belle’s licence on the same day. Belle was then entered in to the SPRC UK National Finals the very next day. Belle was at the time one of the youngest drag racers in the world to race at a national event at aged 8 years + 1 day.
- Belle also travelled to the NHRA Las Vegas Nationals in Oct 2011, signing her hero cards along side the worlds top drag racers.
- In June 2012 Belle, like her sister Paige, had a brand new custom made Junior Dragster built in the USA by Half Scale Dragsters inc. of NJ.
- Belle was the number 1 qulifier and runner up at the 2013 Big Bang event.
