I realized that I forgot to share our thanks for your support picture that I give to our partners, sponsors and the special people that helped us out in some way making it possible for Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing to achieve what we did plan to do during 2019, I said already in September 2018 that we will go to Santa Pod and set a world record with our Chevrolet Big Block powered conventional headed Swedish Self-Built Bad Ass Doorslammer and I kept saying that all the way until we came to England and made that world record setting pass (twice) and ended up with a 5.88@242.5mph or 390km/h, how about that!? 😉

A lot of people said that I won’t be able to do that with the Chevelle, instead it got a new name from the tower at Santa Pod Raceway “The Brick On Wheels From Hell” and I’m more than satisfied with that! 😀

Thanks to all of you that made our short but record setting 2019 season possible! 🙂 The picture sums up everything good from this year but also is a tribute to our friend and number 1 fan Ulf Schill that left us last year way too young… 🙁

Time to finally get the lighting and electrical power in the trailer permanently installed!

Just because we haven’t done anything on the Chevelle it doesn’t mean that we forgot about the trailer! 😉

Finally we have pretty much all the electrical power and working lights in the whole trailer!

Me and Sofi have spent a couple of hours or maybe more from September to December pulling cords and mounting power outlets everywhere and I have tried to find out where and what I want when it comes to switches, lights and power outlets…

Well after all I think it turned out really good!

A huge thanks to John Björkman that helped me fix the mess I created and got everything hooked to the electrical power central, thanks for that because I really don’t like this high voltage stuff! 😀

Felt pretty good to remove all the extension cords and the temporary electrical central that we have been using for the last 3-4 years!… 😉

Now on to next thing in the trailer what ever that will be!… We are moving on slowly but right now at least in the right direction on everything we are doing! 🙂

One week ago me and Sofi got the Chevelle back on the pro jacks about 7 months after we made the last pass in England and now it’s back in the winter spot in the ÅBM shop! Kind of funny that it should take 4 months to get it out from the trailer and then 3 months to move it a couple of meters to the side… Time flies for sure! I really hope that 2020 will be a better year and I year when I can spend more time on the racing instead…. 🙂

Now it’s time to start think about and make a plan on what to do and not to do during this coming season!
