Less than one week to go and the EDRS Pro Nordic Motorcycle Championship will have its second race of the season at Alastaro Circuit in Finland.

But there were other drivers who impressed at Tierp Arena too, such as Åke Persson with 5.88 seconds and David Vegter with two 6.00-second runs.     Continue reading
