Wrap Up 2010

After that competed and been top three in drag racing’s fastest class of Top Fuel Bike in four seasons with my Funny Bike, we had this year, the ability to run in the direction of the UEMs new funny bike Cup due to rule changes in the Top Fuel class.

The goal for us this year was to run some record. These shortcomings are unfortunately both reliability and scoring when we have stretches the bounds of what the bike and the tracks can handle. When we have the margins on our side, it is fast, really fast and when we come across the border, it is not that fast and braking stuff. After last winter’s improvements to an already super bike was not only the goals but also the expectations very high. I had lots of help from Swecomposite to make new body and sideplates for chassi and wheeliebars in super light carbon. Thanks!

In retrospect, we accomplished 4 European record, new personal best and to be the fastest bike all classes in five of seven races and finished 2nd overall in Funnbike Cup 2010 and became King of Mosten for the second time.

I want to thank those who made this season possible and you are a big part in success. Elizabeth, my sons Oscar and Philip, Tony, Fredlund, Wendel, Korry and other friends and buddies, Svemo, Åsa and Aila on Speed Group and my sponsors: Soverign Slovakia s.r.o, Gryviks, Bo Centralen, EK Chain, Swecomposite, Dalhems, MTC, Gary Clark Racing, ArtFex, Robinson Industries, Allt i Däck, RomNet Data, Ubbe, Viking Line, Fast Print.

Finals Santa Pod, England

With huge expectations and with the knowledge of how fast we were on this track on the Main Event, we were really excited and eager to do it again. Friday’s qualifying began with rain, again! The weather was better in the afternoon. First qualifying round did not go well when I had to shut off after 1/8 mile and was a qualifier #4. We began the next day’s qualifing with a bit better time, 6.75 and was number one qualifier. We made adjustments to both the chassis and the clutch and this resulted in a 6.57’s run but only 313km / h when I had switched off due to the hard side wind. Remarkably 1/8 mile time at this run was three hundredths faster than when we ran a personal best at the Main Event. The first elimination round, I was up against Tim Blackmore and managed to win despite 3 gear snapped in two pieces. Then we had found that the gearbox was broken, we changed the engine. Next round, I had the German again, Christian Jäger. I refused to lose despite handling problems, I managed to win and also back up a new European record time of 6.62 s. I was now in the final against Steve French and knew I had good margins and did not rush it at the Christmas tree. I loose a couple tenths in the start but drove on and passed at 1/8 mile and could win with a good margin despite early shut off with the time 6.59 s against 7.33 for Steve. This was a nice way to finish the season 2010 which meant very hard work, struggle, but also been successful and really great fun!

We arrived at the track on Thursday evening and unpacked the bike and all parts. Thanks to all helping hands! On Fridays qualifications we had some serious problem to find the right set up for the clutch. The condition was nearly what we had experienced in Finland. I only manage to run a slow 7.6 and that gave us an 8:th position in the qualification. Both Saturday and Sunday was filled with rain and the race was canceled. I was disappointed on not having the chance to run any fast passes on this very good track.
