Slotcity in Västerås, Sweden, ran an Open12 race on thursday evening. We were a couple of drivers from SSC who joined that race. Västerås is about 100 Km northwest of Stockholm.

On thursday afternoon I left work a little bit earlier to drive to Västerås. On my may I picked up Torgny Nordgren.
When we arrived at Slotcity around 18.00 Michel Lorin, and the rest of the drivers, were already there.

They cleaned the track and put on a very small amount of glue to fit the grip of the Fish and the Piranha type of tires.
Gear ratio?  Torgny ran 6 pinion. I ran 7 and Michel 8. With so short time I just went with what I had.

Marcus Andersson was first up in qualifying and did a 3,598 time.
When Michel Lorin drove he took over the lead with a 3,525 lap. I did a 3,402 and took the lead.
Second from last to qualify was Ove Halvarsson. From practice it looked that he could do a high 3,3 lap but he ended with a 3,511 which gave him second place in qualifying.
