Racing is the only life Krista Baldwin has ever known.
Her grandfather is the “Golden Greek” Chris Karamesines, the ageless driver who was named No. 30 on NHRA’s 50 Greatest Drivers list as part of NHRA’s 50th Anniversary celebration in 2001.

The fourth in the FIA and FIM European Drag Racing Championship Series at Germany’s famous Hockenheimring became the hottest race in town – literally as Germany recorded its highest temperatures on record - a roasting 44 degrees Celsius for the 30th year drag racing anniversary. The track this year, after weeks of preparation led by England’s Santa Pod Raceway’s crack team was good after two years of suffering Formula One insisting all rubber was removed for their event prior to the drag race. Worries of this year’s track conditions made the Pro Stock class withdraw and not bother to show up but the track, despite the exhausting heat provided the necessary traction and provided some great racing for the many of partisan race fans. Only three qualifiers were run in the Pro classes as a massive Sportsman oil down put paid to a Friday’s second session and then Sunday’s two first elimination rounds in Top Fuel put the event a little over the local curfew at the day’s end.
