EDRS Pro Nordic MC Super Street Bike final

Vesa Ruhanen 8.0391/212.77 bye, Anders Blanck broke

Fil rode out the usual fishtail, not quite quick enough to back up the 5.724 but another chance yet and this 5.783 is itself a record backed up by the 5.786, well done Fil, Marius, Ian and team! Jan Sturla close to the guardrail towards the stripe, smoke from the motor as he shut it off but we think a new PB, well done Jan Sturla and team! Rikard does the first half of a new speed record of 406.63 kmh or 252.67 mph, a new PB ET into the bargain, well done Rikard and team!

Gert-Jan Laseur 7.1545/254.00 def. Tommy Grimes 26.1677/41.35

Tommy's tyre up in smoke at the hit, looked from here as if a belt broke as a result but either way he was out of the running.


FIA Pro Modified eliminations round 3

David Vegter 5.8363/398.82 def. Andreas Arthursson 7.4692/211.18

Stefan had got through sixty in 0.9993 and was pulling out good lead but then hit shake and shut it off, smoke from the motor. There was a stunned silence for a moment and then Michael realised that Stefan was off it and got back on the gas himself, overhauled Stefan.

Jimmy Ålund 6.5716/340.48 def. Robin Norén 6.6252/336.66

Robin visibly got away first 0.0826 to Jimmy's 0.1042 and had the better sixty 0.9857 to 0.9961. Jimmy had done a lot of the job of pulling it back by the eighth 4.2354/270.68 to Robin's 4.2589/266.93.

Clear lead for Micke at the eighth 3.2037/428.57 to Tet's 3.3908/392.73, smoke from Tet's motor after the eighth. Micke's car was skating about its lane after the eighth, tyres hazing, and made a move left just before the stripe, you could see some of the decals on the side of the car.

Anita Mäkelä 3.8527/508.00 def. Maja Udtian 6.3311/155.57

Brief burnout for Maja. Anita visibly away first 0.0126 to Maja's 0.1492 and the better sixty 0.8433 to Maja's 0.8709. Maja's tyres started to smoke and the dragster made a move left, she was off it by 330 feet 2.3608/225.28, Anita on her way 2.1589/312.50 and blackstriping through the eighth 3.0834/445.18. A gentle move right then left in the second half but held it and drove it out the back door. Anota's terminal speed equates to 315.66 mph.

Drama in the second pair, smoke from Kathrine Wagenius' motor and a trail of fluid from the Tree onwards in which the rear tyre ultimately slipped and the bike went over past the eighth depositing Kathrine on the track. Kathrine did the clever thing and slid, didn't try to flail around or get herself up until she had stopped, then stood up as the ambulance approached. Bike stopped right on the finish line.

There was a hold for clean-up and then for a number of rain showers, a couple of them absolute deluges. But you know the track crew here, they never give up.

FIA Pro Modified eliminations round 2

Andreas Arthursson 5.7892/412.21 def. Freddy Fagerström 5.9545/382.17

300-foot burnout for Freddy then away first 0.0742 to Andreas' 0.0793 and the quicker sixty 0.9678 to 1.0070, Andreas had the advantage at the eighth 3.8590/324.71 to Freddy's 3.8988/308.04 but I'd say that we had two winners of this race. Well done Freddy and team! Andreas getting close to record territory again.

David Vegter 7.5213/204.16 bye, Jimmy Ålund no show

No Jimmy, no word why as yet. David took the bye, 1.0095 to sixty then shake, hard move left and was right by the centre line, off the gas before the eighth 4.1687/226.51.

-0.0026 red for Roger handed it to Jan. Jan to sixty in 0.9965, the eighth in 3.9400/305.43. Roger hit shake, his motor flashed flame about 100 feet out and the Mustang made moves about its lane, passenger side door looked to have unlatched, off the gas after the eighth.

Mats Eriksson and Micke Gullqvist ready to fire up and it started to rain. The track got quite wet but it was just a sharp shower and the surface did not take long to dry.

Mats Eriksson 6.0496/388.49 def. Micke Gullqvist 5.9113/396.18

0.0818 to 0.2256 holeshot won this for Mats. Micke quicker to sixty 0.9616 to 1.0049 and much quicker to the eighth, 3.8991/311.24 to 4.0001/304.15, Mats' Crown Victoria was swaying left and right but he held on for the win.

Jan Sturla's tyre went up in smoke and he was on and off the throttle with flashes of flame from the motor, Peter was well-placed to take advantage but his bike was skating and fishtailing and tried to pitch him off, then he had to lean to get it vertical again. Peter A-S left before the Tree lighting the big red, then bis tyre started to spin and moved the bike right, crossed lanes at the eighth but behind Rikard. Thomas ready to stage before Willem came forward for his burnout. A quick squirt of a burnout for Willem then forwar to stage. Thomas with problems off the gas about 500 feet out, Willem then off the gas after a couple of feathers of the throttle as the bike moved left. Thomas then realised that he could take it and got back on the gas, chased Willem down and passed him. Track crew took a good look at Willem's lane but all good. The first half of another new European ET record for Fil. 0.9979 to sixty, 2.5662/247.93 (154.06 mph) at 330 feet, 3.7585/335.82 (208.67 mph) at the eighth. Well done Fil, Marius, Ian and team!
