Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing want to wish all of our fans, friends, partners and sponsors a Really Merry Christmas And A Really Happy New Year!

It’s been a boring and a really strange year during 2020!… So let’s use a old Christmas card from when life was simple and fun with a lot of racing and when we were able to meet all of you guys out there on the race tracks! =)


A simple movie with all 6 test rounds at Hudik Raceway August 2020! Enjoy! =)


The trailer mess is nicely cleaned up for Christmas! I don’t understand how it always ends up like a crazy madness every time you start on a new thing to finish up!?

But it turned out REALLY NICE! Soon time to continue the work and make a new mess in it! 😉

Ain’t that just great! 🙁 I know it was a really quick and shitty paint job on the truck and trailer after all the mess I saw on it and the stuff that did get destroyed plus the LONG wait to get it back!… We did have a deal on the job but after all the stuff I found out I refused to pay and haven’t said a word to the person since!… And now just like I assumed already when I did pick it up, they did a way quick sanding job or no sanding at all and like you can see the wrap is getting loose now!… And no it’s not a bad wrap because it takes the new white paint with it and the old paint is under and I can’t see that any sanding have been made here! So as soon as I get the trailer done it’s time to remove the wrap and sand it down completely and then paint or just wrap all of it instead, life is good!!!!


A bit shaky round at Santa Pod Raceway, Doorslammers May 2019!

This was the second 1/4 mile pass with the Chevelle after 9 years of only racing in the 1/8 mile!

It’s pretty amazing how everything can move around like it does especially when you know how stiff the body on the car is, it’s a lot of energy in the rear tire on a car like this!

More stuff is done on the trailer, and some stuff are moving backwards!.. 😉

The sealing and frame around the side trailer door is finally fixed after 5 years!… 🙂

A couple of weeks ago Me, Max and Sofi did start on the waste water tank plumbing, to finally get the rest of the bathroom ready for next years racing! (hopefully)

We also took the brakes apart again to try find the reason that we always get uneven brake power on the front axle on the trailer and try to solve the problem for real now this time!…

And then the electric motor to the air compressor that we finally installed in the right place broke down…. 🙁

And then of course some goofing around! Remember to always try have some fun when doing boring stuff… Like repair air compressors…

The weekend after me an Sofi continued with the waste water tank plumbing, and we found the perfect windy weather for it that also included rain!…

But it turned out really nice anyway with some extra work around to make the welding possible to do!…

And then the week after that Peter from Rörmekano came by and helped me to start on the waste water tank ventilation tubing, much appreciated!

Then I went by Bengtssons Smide and picked up some stainless steel stuff that they helped me fabricate with a really short notice! Nothing of this would be possible without the help from our partners! Thanks and thanks again!

So I could put on some insulation on the the waste water tubing and then put the protection housing in place that they fabricated for me.

Then I changed the electric motor, made a oil change, cleaned up and installed the air compressor again in the trailer so it will be ready to go to a race track, I hope it will work for a while now without problems!…

Then that good feeling you get when you have finished something you started about 5 years ago! 🙂 Been on my way for a really long time now to seal up around the trailer side door and then mount some kind of stainless frame around it to make the door installation complete and have it off the “to do list” 😉 And it for sure turned out really good, finally it looks done and I am super thankful that Bengtssons Smide could help me with a short notice and fabricate the parts I needed!


Trying to find that sweet spot! =)


Some Saturday fun outside the shop 5/9-2020! Coffee, cookies, methanol and some Conventional Headed Chevrolet Big Block music!? =) A fun little Muscle Car Event together with Sneeky Pete from Gasoline Magazine and 30 of his Muskelbilar i Sverige friends outside the Åkes Bil & Motor entrance! =) I assume that you know by now that ÅBM Racing is Åkes Bil & Motor Racing and our main partner for Sjödin Motorsport!?
