12 hour Åtvidaberg 14-15 August 2009
Åtvidaberg MK hosted the annual 12-hour Open 12 race
Previous years we have been hosted by Hjärup Slotracing Center in
Hjärup in the south of Sweden.
The track was built by Lars Harrysson with help of the
and is similar to the ISRA worlds track of 2008. If you like banana
turns you will be more than happy here.
The practice started on Friday with all eight teams present.
With four drivers in each team you have a lot of drivers that like to
practice and learn the track.
In the evening the premises was closed down and we all got
onto a small guide tour by a "train" followed by a boat ride when we
made a stop to see and listen to the sound of a sun canon.
