On our way home again! Thanks to Sundsvall Raceway and all the people that does all they can to make the organization and facility better and better! 🙂 And thanks for the best event 60ft trophy and the price money! 😀

I could really not figure out the track this weekend, and the real reason we went here was to check out the track conditions! With my graphs and info from earlier years I must say that the track was better in 2017 compared to this weekend!… And then I really wonder why a known problem with the track surface wasn’t fixed before the event, it’s just stupid to wait and do it on a warm and sunny race day, that was about 3 hours just waisted time for all racers and spectators… Nothing good about that!!

And the reason to all bad runs is that I really hoped that the track was better and gave it too much even that I took away A LOT of power, but I needed to slow down the motor with transmission, way rich on fuel and have less timing than I ever tried, so much that the motor started to misfire!..

On the 4.28 on Saturday I was just lucky and on the edge to go in to shake all the way and after 330ft the G-meter and wheel speed did go crazy up and down all the way to the finish line! I could hear the motor rpm go up and down and the car was fishtailing pretty much!

And all the pedaling and shaking with the motor rich on fuel and low timing resulted in broken crank pulley bolts… That was really sad because I finally started to figure out the track and did have the best looking graphs during the whole weekend! Car felt really really good and it would have been a really tight race against Kenneth Lingvald, I was a little slower on the tree (he got awesome reactions) and he drove the car the whole way to a 4.41 to the 1/8 mile and on the 330ft we both did have a time of 2.91 even that I just coasted from 2.2 seconds when my motor stopped pulling when the blower stopped!..

Well, that’s racing and it ain’t over until it’s over and that the fun thing!

But I must say it’s a long time since I was this disappointed as I am today!… First the track problems, and then a couple of cheap bolts stopped the weekends best round! And now when I’m thinking about yesterdays problems we did have with the blower starter that stopped us from making a pass I get even more disappointed because if we would have made that round the bolts might have broke already yesterday and we would have fixed it during the night instead!… But of course nothing say that they would have snapped off on that round yesterday!

Thanks to all involved this weekend, partners, sponsors, friends, family, my awesome team! Dad, Sofi, Max, John, Krille, Dennis and this weekends guests Jörgen and Bengt! 🙂

We at least got a little trophy and some price money for the best 60ft on the event, that’s the third time on three events this year! 🙂

Loading up the circus!

Good bye Sundsvall Raceway!

Max is happy with our third position of three cars on the event! 😉 Hahahhaha!!!

I did just put us on the entry list for the EDRS Top Doorslammer round 5 and the finals at Gardermoen Raceway in Norway in less than 2 weeks! 🙂 Not much cars again but hopefully that changes.
