Heading back home to Täby again!
Pretty happy after a good weekend like always at Kjula Dragway! 🙂
The car works much better now after some changing in the 4-link, but in the second run we dropped an intake valve on cylinder 2 after 1.3 second and that stopped us for this year..! Now it’s time to start think about what to do next year, the car, the bus and the team it’s about 8 months to the next race. Will keep you updated during the cold and boring winter! 😉
Thanks to Åke, Marcus, Max, Mathias, Maria, Christer, John, Simon, Sara, Jim Geese and of course the crew at Kjula Dragway for making this weekend work! 🙂

We just found some broken valve springs so we are about to take down the oil pan and look for some lost parts…. 🙂 Hope we get out to next round! Stay tuned.


We did miss the first round because of a little bad communication from the track crew..
