thew eighth 3.4801/237.15 to Sandro's 4.3903/319.34 and then it was a question of whether Sandro could catch him,
and catch him he did.

Åke Persson 6.0963/368.10 def. Freddy Fagerström 6.2831/361.20
Freddy, 300-foot burnout, high-speed backup, you know the script. The Tree ran very quickly after both staged.
Åke handed Freddy his butt on a plate off the line 0.2582 to 0.4315, 1.0097 to sixty to Freddy's 1.0592.
Freddy going remarkably straight whilst Åke's Camaro headed left and ran very close to the guardrail all
the way. Visible lead for Åke by the eighth 3.9556/295.99 to Freddy's 4.1050/291.10.
Micke Gullqvist 5.8622/398.82 def. Jimmy Ålund 5.8842/389.05
Second weekend running we have the quickest side-by-side Pro Modified race in Europe. Micke away first 0.0602 to 0.0706, no shake for either,
quicker sixty for Micke 0.9655 to Jimmy's 0.9735, Jimmy with the quicker eighth 3.8577/312.14 to Micke's
3.8614/313.23 but Micke had it in the bag.
FIA Top Methanol eliminations round 2
Sandro Bellio 5.4490/415.70 def. Dennis Habermann 6.5534/237.89
Sandro with the head start but Dennis with the better RT 0.0252 to Sandro's 0.0813, better sixty for Dennis
0.9153 to Sandro's 0.9375 but Dennis had to pedal for shake and then his dragster got very close to the guardrail.
Sandro looked ahead at the eighth 3.5905/342.42 to Dennis' wayward 3.7011/273.28, Dennis pulled the dragster right
and the blower relief panel blew and put a chute out. Storming PB for Sandro, well done Sando, Eurodragster.com
sponsor Danny and team!
Timo Habermann 11.4593/153.50 bye
Odd-number bye for Timo. Tyres up in smoke at the hit, 1,1965 to sixty, already pedalled by then and drove gently
along the track going through the gears.
FIA Pro Stock eliminations round 2
Stefan Ernryd 6.5951/338.13 def. Richard Sundblom 6.6310/335.40
Nixxon away first 0.0762 to Stefan's 0.0836 and the better sixty 0.9843 to 0.9930 but Stefan was visibly
reeling him in even before the eighth, Stefan past him at the eighth 4.2482/270.14 to Nixxon's 4.2650/266.40.
Jimmy Ålund 6.5517/342.86 def. Michael Malmgren no time broke
Big holeshot for Jimmy 0.0459 to Michael's 0.1958, Michael with bad shake lost drive at the hit and shut
it off. Jimmy to sixty in 1.0093 and the eighth in 4.2326/272.31.
FIA Top Fuel Dragster eliminations round 2
Micke Kågered 5.8864/186.79 bye, Liam Jones broke
Liam's safety device cut the motor and dropped the chutes in the burnout. Liam jumped out and climbed the guardrail, car left on the track
about 100 feet out. 0.8897 to sixty for Micke, 2.3317/240.64 at 330 feet off the gas by then. Retrieval followed both of Liam's car
and Micke's car which stopped on the shutdown area.
Antti Horto 3.9944/482.14 def. Anita Mäkelä no time DQ
Anita's back-up guy gave the car a shove backwards after the burnout, I thought reverse had not engaged but then
Anita returned to the start line quite happily (probably literally knowing Anita). Scary race. Anita away first
0.1077 to 0.1230, Antti with the better sixty 0.8720 to 0.8852 and the better 330 foot 2.2234/303.88 to Anita's
2.2777/294.44, Anita blackstriping all the way and the car started drifting left at the eighth 3.2665/406.63 visibly
trailing Antti's 3.1850/422.87 then Anita's car crossed lanes after the eighth. Antti was in front by this point
but I think that everyone here thought that Anita was going to catch the back of Antti's dragster. Thankfully not.

Jan Sturla Hegre 6.1608/341.56 def. Peter Andersson (Ä) 10.8837/149.48
Great run for Sverre, had us worried going in to stage with a lot of smoke out of the pipes.
1.0684 to sixty, 3.9231/307.87 (191.30 mph) at the eighth with slight fishtail. Speed equates to 230.76 mph.
Great run for Thomas and I am thinking a new PB or close to it, well done Thomas and team! However
smoke and a groan from the motor in the second half and oil on the track. Great pass for Jan Sturla,
motor stayed clean to about 100 feet then a flash of flame from the left side. Track checked and all OK.

Another fantastic run for Tommy! 1.1516 to sixty, 4.2300/301.00 at the eighth, straight run too.
Backs up his 6,311 in qualifying for an EDRS Pro record, we understand. Well done Per, Tommy and team!
Ulf's motor hesitated and
he was off the gas after the eighth. Lasse's motor quit not far off the line and he rolled to a halt
at about 1000 feet. 1.2387 to sixty for Roman, 4.5248/323.94 at the eighth, close to the centre line
in the second half. Trail of fluid all the way down the track from Lasse's motor, clean-up called.
Samu not happy with something after his burnout and eventually shut it off before staging. Greger
dodged a bullet, tyre up in smoke at the hit. Bike made a move right but Greger kept hold of it.
Great run for Marcus, 1.1306 to sixty, 4.2412/282.72 at the eighth and a new PB I think, well done
Marcus and team!

FIA Pro Modified eliminations round 2
Åke Persson 5.9457/392.44 bye, Jan Ericsson no show
Åke doing OK for byes today! No word on what ails Jan. Launch looked conservative, relatively at least, 1.0090
to sixty but visibly picked up before the eighth 3.9381/295.57.
Freddy Fagerström 6.1974/335.20 def. Rolf Simonsson 6.4810/337.50
Restrained burnout by Freddy, only 300 feet this time, getting off it by a spotter rather than the last photog.
Freddy away first 0.1462 to Rolf's 0.3485 and the slightly better sixty 1.0030 to Rolf's 1.0051. Much better
eighth for Freddy 4.0010/294.92 to Rolf's 4.1565/273.97. Rolf with the faster terminal and having come in as
an alternate I would imagine that he will not be too disappointed to have got this far.
Jimmy Ålund 5.9915/330.38 def. Laura Saksa 5.9868/399.11
0.1286 to 0.1557 holeshot win for Jimmy but a fantastic début weekend for Laura. Jimmy with the better
sixty 0.9734 to Laura's 1.0105 and the better eighth 3.8593/312.32 to Laura's 3.9954/311.06 but as is the wont
of turbo cars Laura was reeling him in in the second half, just ran out of track. 248.00 mph for Laura.
Micke Gullqvist 5.8546/397.94 def. Bruno Bader 6.0800/372.16
Bruno away first 0.0555 to 0.1636, Micke with the better sixty 0.9626 to Bruno's 1.0145,
Micke's Camaro started to move towards the centre line and he wrenched it back, stayed on the
gas though, stormer at the eighth 3.8495/311.78 to Bruno's 3.9687/301.34.
FIA Pro Stock eliminations round 1
Michael Malmgren 6.5960/335.82 def. Thomas Lindström 6.6195/335.82
Thomas away first 0.0682 to Michael's 0.082, Michael started making it up by sixty 0.9716 to Thomas' 0.9789
and then the better eighth 4.2333/267.33 to Thomas' 4.2528/267.33. Those are not typos, eighth and quarter
speeds the same.
Richard Sundblom 6.6724/334.78 def. Christian Sagelv 18.0428/101.43
Christian moved first 0.1220 to Nixxon's 0.1616 but then Christian's car lost drive and stopped dead.
Nixxon to sixty in 0.9975 and the eighth in 4.3032/266.40, Christian found drive and drove gently through the
Stefan Ernryd 6.6067/339.41 def. Bengt Ljungdahl 29.2328/37.01
Stefan and Bengt already met in qualifying after last week's eventful final at Hockenheim so any demons long laid
to rest. 0.0524 to 0.1636 holeshot for Stefan, instant shake for Bengt and shut it off. Stefan to sixty in 0.9946
and the eighth in 4.2560/269.73, crew dancing on the start line.
Jimmy Ålund 6.5886/342.86 def. Magnus Pettersson 38.9170/23.15
Jimmy away first 0.0593 to Magnus' 0.0711. Instant shake for Magnus and shut it off. Jimmy to sixty in 1.0151,

FIA Top Methanol eliminations round 1
Sandro Bellio 5.5242/383.52 def. Jonny Lagg 5.5571/423.20
Jonny made up a fair bit of the start line advantage with a 0.0581 to Sandro's 0.1484. Sandro to sixty in 0.9320 driving
through the acceptable level of shake with a slight drift left, the better eighth ET 3.6078/334.99 to Jonny's faster
3.7312/349.06. Jonny's dragster made a move to the right in the second half but he had a hold of it.
Dennis Habermann 5.4045/430.28 bye, Micke Larsson no show
No Micke, no word why. Dennis to sixty in 0.9623, a brief pedal although the tyres were not visibly flapping the way
they sometimes do. 2.4310/263.29 at 330 feet and 3.5763/349.06 at the eighth.

FIA Top Fuel Dragster eliminations round 1
Micke Kågered no time bye, Stig Neergaard broke
No reverse for Stig and looked to run over the feet of his crewman blipping the throttle trying to engage reverse. Crew guy hopped away visibly
in agony, pulled himself over the guardrail and collapsed to the ground, his colleagues and start line crew rushed to assist whilst
Stig drove down the track to clear it for Micke. A bang from the motor at the hit for Micke, safety device cut the motor and put out
the chute. Micke stopped by the rail about 200 feet out.

at the eighth 3.2265/404.80 to Jndia's faster 3.3582/414.11. Smoke from both motors in the second half, both looked
to shut it off before the stripe. Blackstripe most of the way down Jndia's lane. Safety crews chased both cars down
the shutdown area. Precaution I think as they went back on station very quickly.

Blackstriping continued, Anita's car headed towards the guardrail in the seocnd half but she was not getting
off the gas for anything, close to the guardrail past the stripe. A bang from one of the motors in the second
half and safety crews went after both cars, again went back on station quickly.

Good morning and welcome to our coverage of the Dico Internationals brought to you in association with
John Woolfe Racing.
It's another nice day here at Tierp Arena. Blue sky, a bank of cloud way north of here but looks to be breaking up.
Again a gentle breeze up the track.
As usual at Tierp we will be using the popular split-screen format for the reports. We will be providing
commentaries on Sportsman classes but of course the usual full coverage and standings in Pro classes. There
is no webcast of this event by any party so you will have to slum it with us for one more day.
We have a birthday on the team today: a big Happy Birthday and many more of them to our always-working photographer
Julian. Julian is already out in the pits getting pictures; I did try to tell him to sit back and eat cake but that's
not him. Have a great day Julian.
The traditional Raceday Good Morning to our US Correspondent Kathy Hileman who is tuned in from Essex, NH.
Hope you are having a good weekend Kathy and that the bridge is going OK. Again a big Good Morning to our
Eurodragster.com colleagues Kirstie and Simon and Contributing Photographer Callum who are at Shakespeare County
Raceway for this weekend's APIRA Open Sport Nationals where Simon and Callum are again having their hard work ripped
off by 8.50 Bike racers and Kirstie is racing in Sportsman ET. Kirstie worked up a credit against her next firing
by holding #1 qualifier until relieved of it by 0.001 by team-mate Andy Dibley, who has perforce been made a member
of the Eurodragster.com staff so that we can fire him. OK Dibley you're fired. Good morning also to all of the
Eurodragsterholics, especially Kai Plathan and Otto in Finland and Ivar Kolberg in Norway; thank you all for your
Today's running order kindly supplied by Race Director Tomas Pettersson has E1s of FIA Pro Modified and EDRS Pro
