Mats qualified at third place with 6.00 seconds / 389 km /h just behind Roger Johansson, Gothenburg at 5.99 seconds / 388 km /h and qualifying number one Niclas Andersson, Näsviken at 5.98 seconds / 380 km /h. Mats was going up against Andreas Arthursson, Avesta, in the elimination. Unfortunately, Andreas rolled back his car from the start line and Mats got a solo round. He crossed the finish line at 6,12 seconds. We also had special guest in our pit. On friday 3M was on site to take some film scenes for a instruktion/commercial film for the company. And at saturday the Historic Rally driver and co-driver Anders and Ingrid Johnsen came to visit, and to have a ride in the double dragster. Unfortunately the rain stopped the ride, so we going to give it a try in august instead.
It was a strange weekend with every kind of weather and a lots of ups and downs at the track. The track was very good and records was done by both Jimmy Ålund and Anita Mäkelä. But sadly some bad incidents was happening to. We hope that Mattias Wulcan in Pro Mod and Micke Larsson in Top Methanol Funny Car are recovering well and very soon. We hope they are back on track as soon as possibly. As well as Leif Anderasson who we hope can put the car together until next race.
Mats is still in the lead of the European Championship and now we have about four weeks to go before Finland and Alastaro is up.
7:55 in to the program there is a dragracing report.
A satisfied Mats who is in the lead of the Championship so far.
