Russ Fellows started Drag Racing his Bug back in the the early nineties in the old VWDRC ‘Street’ class and steadily progressed through ‘Super Street’ to ‘Modified’ winning many class championships along the way. When the VWDRC classes were re-structured Russ moved into VW Pro, where he still regularly competes.

On 10th September 2009, longtime VWDRC Racer, Russ Fellows ran the Santa Pod quarter mile in 9.34 seconds at a crazy 150mph in his ‘street legal’, floorpan’d Bug at the Euro Finals. This undoubtedly makes him the quickest man in the UK in a full-bodied, floorpan’d VW.
