Welcome to ÅBM Racing

Top Doorslammer

It does not feel good to leave Santa Pod now after these 2 awesome weekends! But… it’s time to work!

A huge thanks to Keith Bartlett and the whole Santa Pod Raceway crew for an awesome job! I can’t thank you enough!

We are ready to leave tomorrow morning! We got at record setting car with us, so we will sleep good at least! 😉

 

No one hit wonder!! 😉

Did lose in the semi finals but with one more personal best with a 5.8813s @ 242.55mph or 390.35km/h!!!! Isn’t that fucking crazy!!!???!? Hahahah can’t be happier with losing a round, a big congrats to the Wulcano Racing Team! Well done guys! 🙂

Track was way better that what I thought after the rain, added power but not enough because the low numbers was slower compared with the earlier round in E1, thanks to the Santa Pod Raceway crew for an amazing job once again!!!!

Picked up on speed and made my first over 390km/h pass in the car (brick on wheels like the speaker calls it) Best thing with this is that I got more to give, see you all at the Doorslammers in 2020 here at Santa Pod Raceway!

Everything still looks good in our conventional headed standard bore space big block Chevrolet!!!

 

Its time for elimination round 2 against Wulcan! Time to try improve a bit on that world record! 😉

Wish us luck!

 

E2 coming up against Wulcan, and we have spent the time well between rounds if you ask me! 🙂 😉

I was prepared and we made it right all the way with what we was looking for!!!! And by the way, I like decals! 😉

 

We have the worlds fastest conventional headed standard bore space Big Block Chevrolet on the quarter mile!!!!!!!!!

And built by us, tuned and driven by me!!! Can’t be more proud over what we in Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing have achieved during this 2 weekends!!!

I have the best team, family, sponsors and partners that made this possible for me to do!!!

HARD WORK PAYS OFF!!

 

Soon elimination round 1 against Lenn Lindell!

 

Good morning from Santa Pod Raceway, it’s race day and time for eliminations, we are up against one of my own creations, the LL Racing Cuda and Lenn Lindell behind the wheel, it’s going to be fun! And hopefully we got the same track like yesterday so we are able to improve our numbers!

Today’s schedule!

We are ready to warm it up any minute now!

 

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!..
