The European Drag Racing Championship has now started, with the last weekend's Main Event at Santa Pod Raceway in England.
We surprised the fans in England, with the paint on the new race car. The car is now black and white. And alot of people liked it, so that was fun.
The best run with the new car is now 5.97 Sec. We ended up as number 9 of 24 cars in the qualification.
The first elimination we did have a good race against Marck Harteveld (Netherlands). 6,12 to Marck´s 6,27.
In the quarterfinal we was against David Vegter (Netherlands), but no show from David with a transmission problem. So we did try to step up and made a test. But it was to much and Mats was off the throttle.
Semi final against Jimmy Ålund (Sweden) was a tuff fight. Both had problems and was off and on the throttle. Mats 6,18 against Jimmys 6.31. Mats did a really nice driving job.
The final was against Michael Gullqvist (Sweden). Mats had some problems at the starting line so the car vent before the tree was activated. No time on Mats against Gullqvist nice run with a 5,83.
So we was Runner up and are 2:nd in the European Championship.
Next race will be at Tierp Arena 7-9 June for Pro Mod. Hope to see you there....
