the weather forecast for the next 10 days is not looking good for our race. Now we are hoping for a cold spell the week before the race to save us from a swimming pool. the ice is thick though 50 cm.

Ellwood,

What are the entry fees? I was asked to do the North Cape run from Denmark in 2016 but Speedweekend in Sweden looks a lot more fun and with 480bhp on tap in the Healey should make it interesting.

 cheers

1300 sek entry for two days racing. there is also a weekend licence which costs around 250 sek. if youre gonna be going over 250 kmh then you need a roll cage, you can use any tyres.

The race is coming and the conditions look perfect this year! smiley

My turbine bike is almost ready, some minor stuff left to do before it can be loaded to the trailer and hauled to Speed Weeend.







Cheers!

Just for the heck of it, John, I've just checked the airfare from Marquette, Michigan.  Trying to get the entire flight on one ticket yields a cost of a bit over $2100.  Wow.  That's more than if I had bought a ticket a few months ago -- lots more.  If I bought one from home to Chicago or New York the total was more like $950 or so - both back in November and now.

So much for selling the last few seats for dirt cheap, hey?  Sorry -- I won't be there this year.  And I was really looking forward to streaming audio from there so the folks in internetland could hear Ander's bike and the sounds of crunching snow and perhaps some wind howling - - and the sounds of Swedes partying.  Skol!  Maybe next time around. . . cheers

What a weekend! Perfect weather (could have been a bit colder since the track got a bit soft at the end of the days) and thousands of spectators made a great race! Plenty of records broken as well, I hope someone at landracing.se will post a summary here when they have had time to get some sleep. smiley

Here is a video of saturdays run with my bike, I haven┤t checked the GPS logger yet so I don┤t know the top speed. Feels like I ran faster in mid track than at the finish line so perhaps close to 220km/h top speed. The spiked tyres are extremely draggy, we needed two guys just to push the bike to the starting line so on a paved track with summer wheels on it will be very fast!



Cheers!
