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! 🙂

 

First qualifying round ended up in a 4.03/301

 

It’s Saturday and time for the first qualifying round in about 2 hours! 

I’m not here to just go down the track so I will hot it up directly and see if the track will take it or not!!:D


Way good weather here today, looks like this will be an really good day with a lot of racing!


I like it!! 🙂


Breakfast time!


Sofi and Putte taking care of the laundry!


Let’s kick that poop in the ass with an happy tune! 😉

 

We have made some last small stuff on the car and also did fire it up to check that everything looks like it should and it of course did! 😉

She’s ready for tomorrow’s qualifying, if everything goes like it should we will get total 3 rounds, first at 11:00, second at 2:00 and the last one at 5:00!


We did get some awesome dinner today, a really good piece of meat from Stockholm Gourmet! 😀


Max are doing his thing, making sure our transmission is like new every pass! 

 

It started to rain pretty much when we did leave the shop and it still rains here at the track, well better today than tomorrow! 🙂


Wet wet wet!…


Boring!


We are waiting for the rain to stop so we can take out the Chevelle and get it inspected and do the last small stuff before tomorrow’s qualifying.


But first, lunch! 🙂

 

After a long week of working on the car after we found some issues with the intake valve seats we are now ready to hit the road for the last event in 2017, Race Star Summer Nationals 2017 at Tierp Arena!!

Let’s make this the best race weekend this year, it’s time to kick some butts and collect one last personal best in 2017!! 😀


This weekend we have borrowed The Parts Stop Sweden’s Ford F100 pick up to have as a push car! 🙂


Happy faces! 🙂


Pistons and rods ready to go back in!


We found out that we needed to do a little bigger service on the heads Monday this week… well we did have the spares and we got our own machine shop so we just needed to spend some extra time in the shop, they are like new again! 😉

 

I was ready with the car really late last night and now it’s loaded in the trailer and we are ready to leave the shop, finally!
