Tierp Arena

Night of fire @ Tierp Arena, the first real race for us!

The weekend went out pretty well for us, we came to Tierp Arena early on Thursday, unloaded the car and did some work on it.
Friday morning started with great weather! first run out new PB at 60ft 1.047 and then a little tire shake… Second run nothing to talk about, everything went wrong….. Then for the third run out on Friday we made some changes in the gear box, and the result came! New personal best and also the first ever 6 sec run with the Chevelle! 1.0108s@60ft, 4.2704s/253.16km/h@1/8 and 6.8135s/314.69@1/4 with the pedal just half way down… 😉 Andreas did not think that he would get the car below 7 sec this year so this came like a surprice to him because the run felt really lame… On Saturday morning the weather was still on our side! 🙂 First run out the car worked pretty good but with a little tire shake so Andreas just released the throttle, to the second run we did some small changes to the clutch and just blew the tires directly on the starting line… But it really did not matter! We made our first 6 sec run and we did get the 18:th spot in the qualifying list of 35 cars in our first real race weekend together as a team! Now we really look forward to next year when we hope to run the whole Top Doorslammer series and start kick some old asses!! 😉
