A warm, fast and sunny raceweeken at Tallhed Raceway

  Orsa Midsommar Race 2016

The most startling at the midsummer race in Orsa was Villiam Svensson’s dial-in time. He has just started to compete in the Junior Dragster class. He took the No. 1 qualifying spot on Saturday with the reaction time 0.0002 sec.

A fantastic sunny midsummer on Tallhed Dragway. 149 participating teams showed up on this historic course well known outside Orsa in Dalarna, to celebrate Midsummer and combine it with what we all love most, drag racing. Closest to that was Fanny Olsson in 0.0037 seconds. Unfortunately redlighted William in the first round against Victor Heleander.

Winner of the class was Jennifer Östergren. And because Yasmine Bengtsson was on site, there was some F.U.N.N. activities in the evening for all the younger drivers. The training part was to put out a burning doll. And even the youngest of participants Emelie Svensson 8 years old, did it with bravura.

-Now I can teach my grandmother how to do this, she said right afterward.
Two teams, one for parents and one for the youngsters, had some fun in the game parts later.
Next weekend it is Sundsvall’s turn to host the F.U.N.N. project.
