Plan was to improve just a little and go faster but a messy round with in and out the car a couple of times, rain a couple of times and back to the pits for a while etc made the round a bit strange… Awesome work by the track crew here at Santa Pod Raceway, and I mean all of you! You are doing a crazy good work with everything and you are really doing all you can to make the best possible track for us! =D

I got a little bit too much to the left so I could not see the tree and messed up there!..

But then the car felt amazing, it felt crazy fast!! I never felt this feeling during this two weekends so far so I was sure that we would put up good really numbers!!! But then we “only” made a 5.98 @ 229mph (367km/h) of course I’m happy to repeat and show we got a real 5 second car because we made it twice now and it was straight like an arrow! But still disappointed on the ET, good part is that I was too much of a chicken on the tuning, took away some power because I did not think the track would take it after all the rain and so during the day but I’d did! One more time, AMAZING job by the track crew here at the Pod! Next thing is that I was off the throttle at 5.70 seconds and I really don’t know why!…. Well at least this means that I’m able to improve and get a better ET! 😉

We have one more chance of qualifying today but the Racepak did not work like it should and the oil pressure was a bit strange so I decided to service the car and take the oil pump apart and make sure to have everything in good shape for tomorrow’s first eliminations round instead!..

In the lanes again and now rain again!!..

We got some more rain!… They are cleaning up the track now again and we are back in the pits for some lunch! 🙂

The sun is here again! 🙂

We are up against Wulcano Racing in Q4, Europe’s fastest conventional headed std bore space Big Block Chevrolet agains Europe’s fastest Hemi on the quarter mile!

The brick against the arrow! 🙂

Tiny ass against wide ass!

In the lanes, and the drizzle stoped and the rain started!…


Ready for Q4

But first some drizzle, of course… 😉

Let’s see what the stuff I put in will do when it’s time!

Time to stand on the gas pedal a little bit harder today! 😉

The schedule for today!

Almost ready!

But first breakfast!

What a weekend so far, plan in Q1 yesterday was to continue from our 6.04 from last weekends semifinal but instead gremlins with ignition issues and worn down pushrods and adjuster screws, driver mistakes etc etc during Q1 yesterday and Q2 earlier today…

But now in the last round in Q3 it finally worked (with just a little misfires..)

FIRST FUCKING FIVE SECOND PASS in our Swedish Self-Built Bad Ass Top Doorslammer!!!! 🙂 5.9745 @ 238.62mph or 384.02km/h!!!

Can’t thank everyone around enough for making this possible, team, family, sponsors, partners, Santa Pod Raceway for giving us a track that I can throw all I can on and still get down it!!!

And a huge thanks to Keith Bartlett for inviting us and understand that our kind of cars are entertaining for the crowd paying money to see drag racing!!!

Still we have some small ignition issues but the gremlins starts to leave the car now! Now some service and then tomorrow we got two more rounds of qualification were I will give the track all I can to to all I can to go 0.0766 seconds faster and become the worlds fastest standard bore space Big Block Chevrolet and with conventional cylinder heads (not big chief style) I mean how hard can it be? Right!? 😉
