Back home at the shop again, the weekend didn’t turn out in the best way for sure… Before the weekend I said that it must be a rain free and not to many clean ups this weekend to make it a good one, well…. It’s been raining a lot and it’s been a lot of clean ups both because of rain but also afte a lot of cars…

Even that I didn’t get what I wanted this weeken I’m really satisfied anyway with our performance, in Q1 I wanted to just make sure to get into the ladder and we did with a 4.03s, in Q2 I hopped it up to make a low 90 and ended up with a 3.92s, in E1 I was looking for a mid 80 and ended up with a 3.87s, in E2 I hopped it up a bit to go fast, ended up with a crazy shake directly on the hit…. Funny thing is that I really didn’t make that big change so the car should do like it did, I haven’t even looked in the computer what really happened… that’s something I will do later when I get the racing spirit back again.

So we didn’t get enough rounds this weekend to succeed with what I wanted, but like I just said I’m satisfied anyway! Right now it feels really good that the season have come to an end, and at the same time it really sucks because this is what I want to do… It’s been a tough year from the start for sure, messed up races because of missing parts so we had to cancel the first test, parts that wasn’t good enough so we had to cancel the event after the first round, people that are supposed to do things but just instead disappointing me and it ends up that I need to take care of stuff I shouldn’t have myself, to messy at work etc…. 

But we ended up with one more trophy for 2017 this race, we were qualifier number 2 got to the semifinals and also the second fastest car on the event in our class! 🙂

Pretty ok anyway! 😀

Back home and It’s time for a long time away from race tracks!

I hopped it up a bit and found the limit on the track, started to shake directly when I released the button so I just let off the throttle and watched Lenn go down on a good looking pass! Congrats to the LL-Racing team! 🙂

The 2017 racing season is now over and it’s time to start figure out what to and what not to do next year, time will tell.

Time to pack this circus up for the last time this year.

Ready, but first…

The waiting game due to a clean up!

We are up against Lenn Lindell that just made a 3.91! We got lane choice but now it’s time to step it up for real!

Feeling good!!! 🙂

Tuning makes the difference!

Winning! 🙂

Finally it’s time! Hold your thumbs that the rain will stay away now..!

The rain didn’t cause enough problem for us yesterday I guess… 🙁

After a good nights sleep.

It’s time to wake her up! Elimination round one in about 1.5 hour.

And some breakfast!

The weather doesn’t look so fun but the forecast says no rain… guess we will find out during the day! 😉

A lot of rain or at least it have been raining about 6 different times today on a 9 hour racing day….

Everything looks just fine after our 2 passes today and we are ready for tomorrow’s first elimination round agains Anders Edh with his awesome cool steel bodied Camaro with a Big Block Chevy power plant!

In Q1 I was looking for a good round but because of rain I slowed it down… Got down the track on a full pass but slow, not satisfied!…

After first round we found a oil leakage from the left rear wheel oil seal, qualifying round 2 got canceled due to the rain, good for us tho.

A way to thanks my friend Jeff Jones for helping me out the way he does! 😀

Sofi is taking care of the laundry! 🙂

Max is doing his things!

Round 2 I stepped it up a bit and got down on a 3.92@309km/h and that made us end up as the number 2 qualifyer this week! I needed to do some steering to get down so I was on the limit… Hopefully the rain will be somewhere else tomorrow and the track will be better!

And it was against Lenn Lindell in one of my child’s that I built! Like it a bit more just because of that! 🙂

The motor still looks great and tomorrow it’s time to be a bit more mean against it, hopefully we can find a new personal best for the last time this year!

As usual we got an awesome dinner from Stockholm Gourmet! 🙂
