Drag Racers reunited at Åby Motorklubb Drag Racing Market – 2018 season has started

Lena Perés and Carl-Erik Kihlman from Speedgroup was on site having a chat with all and everyone.

Success for this year’s drag racing market in Norrköping, organized by Åby Motorklubb. More than filled with exhibitors and a fierce stream of visitors became the result of this racing season start-up.

126 booths filled with drag racing related gadgets. And around 1200 visitors from all over the country, and some from Finland and Norway as well, made the day at Åby Motorklubb’s drag racing market in Norrköping. The market is becoming more and more popular every year.

After a long winter, the need to meet with drag racing friends again is big. Storage status in the garage needs to be completed or replaced. But most importantly, drag racers meet drag racers again, talk about what have happened in the garage during the winter, who will run what this summer, series, rules and much more. Many well known people made a visit in Norrköping and some of them you can see down below. Life returns and soon it is time to gather again on the tracks around Scandinavia and Europe.
