It is still raining and the radar shows it continuing for some time so the Race Director has called it.

Stay tuned and we'll have today's gallery for you in a few hours.


As mentioned the other day one of the rain indicators is spectators making a run for it from the stands and a large part of the audience just upped and left. The Puddle of Reference is now showing rain as opposed to spots and we have streaks on the window here. Stay tuned.

Micke Johansson 12.9328/100.52 bye, Anders Nilsson no show

No sign of the new Swedish Champion nor of alternate Urban Johansson so Micke took the bye. Spent a long time in pre-stage, I started to think that maybe Micke didn't know that he was on a bye. 1.0852 to sixty with hideous shake, something came off the car, Micke shut it off about 100 feet out.

Bruno away first 0.1124 to Johan's 0.1964, Johan with the better sixty 0.9972 to 1.0171. No sign of shake for either past the acceptable level. Bruno to the eighth in 3.9332/304.05 to Johan's 3.9763/303.03. Johan plain outrun, but only just.

Håkan Persson 6.0100/383.52 bye, Rolf Simonsson no show

No Rolf and no word why. Håkan took the bye. Great run! 1.0207 to sixty, slight move left and right, 3.9495/306.12 at the eighth.

Mats Eriksson 5.9822/384.07 def. Freddy Fagerström 8.5837/153.41

Mats had to change motors yesterday. No sign of the thrash in the RTs, 0.0705 to Freddy's 0.1141. Mats to sixty in 0.9729 to Freddy's 1.0664. Freddy hit shake and the pick-up started to move towards the centre line, gave it up just before the eighth. Mats long gone at the eighth 3.9310/305.60.

David Vegter 5.9685/375.82 def. Jöran Persåker 9.8798/203.54

Jöran edged into full stage spooling up the turbo, David not even in pre-stage and was bulbed by the Autostart. Luckily neither racer moved and the starter signalled both to pull back and stage again. On the green Jöran's pick-up crept forward very slowly then he added power as he went down the track. David to sixty in 1.0162, the eighth 3.9312/310.34 moving gently left and right.

Åke Persson 5.8958/395.31 bye, Stefan Gustafsson no show

No Stefan, no word why. Fantastic run for Åke! 0.9904 to sixty, drifted left before the eighth 3.8920/313.04, pulled it back to the middle of the lane.

Micke Gullqvist 6.3232/382.17 def. Erik Andersson 7.1331/297.85

Visible holeshot for Erik 0.1830 to Micke's 0.3560. Micke to sixty in 1.0083 to Erik's 1.1705, Micke hit shake and pedalled, shook again and the Camaro headed right with the front right wheel in the air, another pedal and pulled it away from the centre line. Micke to the eighth in 4.2064/288.46 had Erik's 4.5904/267.06 covered.

Good morning and welcome from Tierp Arena for our coverage of the Scandinavian Internationals brought to you in association with John Woolfe Racing.

It's a beautiful morning here. Lots of sun, high cloud and a nice temperature.

Because full ladders are being published courtesy of Time-Tree we are using the popular split-screen format for our reports, similar to last week's coverage from Hockenheim. We will post commentaries of Sportsman qualifying sessions and then round winners in Sportsman eliminations but we will of course continue to post the full reports and results in Pro classes.

The traditional Raceday god morgon to our US Correspondent Kathy Hileman who is tuned in from New Hampshire. Hope you are having a great weekend Kathy. Good morning also to all of the Eurodragsterholics including Ivar Kolberg, Kai Plathan and James Humphreys, hope you are all doing OK and thank you for your support. A big Good Morning to our colleague Simon and Contributing Photographer Callum Pudge and to all the guys at Shakespeare County Raceway where the Open Sport Nationals starts today. Hello, good luck and stay safe to our colleague Kirstie who is racing in Sportsman ET. You can stay in touch with events at SCR by clicking here.

Please remember that neither nor our sponsors look kindly upon reports, results or pictures being stolen from our Event Coverage and posted on Facebook or elsewhere. Links and shares: fine. Anything else: not fine. If in doubt then please enquire at

Junior Dragster have been called to the lanes for 08:30 for their second round of eliminations. This will be followed by the 16 -> 8 rounds of FIA Pro Modified and EDRS Pro Super Street Bike. There is a brief ceremony at 10:00 after which all Pro classes will have their first rounds of eliminations and Pro Modified their second. It's going to be manic. Stay tuned and when the wheels start to turn we'll bring you the news.
