UEM Event Mantorp Sweden 2007

Home track and after winning here last year we was really glad and excited to be here.

The race was shortened down to a 1/8 mile race because of the short shutdown area. In our first run the engine just worked for 2 second, it felt like a fuel problem. We got the bike back to the pit and tried to find the problem, but everything seemed to work. Same shit next run but still manage to qualified in the middle of the field. Second day we broke our camchain in the burnout and hade to change our engine, on the last pass we did have the same problem but got a 4,37 run.

We got through first elimination run but our problems was hurting the engine and we broke our crankgear. We was out of engines and did not have the time to build a new one and that gave Ian King a solo run in the semi.

Very glad to see my old friend Peter and Sören with familys back racing again and they did as always a excellent event running very fast. Congratulations to Ian King for the new UEM 1/8 record for both speed and time!

UEM Event Alastaro Finland 2007

We started on friday with a 6,75s on our first qualification. Next run we started to put some more power on but this resulting in spinning the wheel on 2nd gear still going 6.75s and 193 mph on our 2nd run.

We ended up #2 qualifier after Englands Ian King but we hade more to come next day. We keept the settings and did a 6,83s and 214 mph run at the first try on Saturdays qualifications, still spinning the rear wheel. Next run we did a 6,66s and 225 mph and ended up as qualifier #1.

The track wasn’t that good and our 60′ time was only 1,12 to 1,13 and we use to have 1,08 to 1,10. We had tire spinn on all of our runs. We got a solo run in the first elimination run on Sunday, and did a 6,68. After that he rain came and the race was stopped.

We were very happy to post all 5 runs in the 6 second zone and we did not break any parts, not even a clutch plate.

We also got Dalhems, ER Bilkyl and Vincents as new sponsors.
