Jan Ericsson, Jonny Lagg and Jimmy Ålund number one qualifiers at Tierp Arena
After another great day of qualifying Jan Ericsson (Pro Modified), Jonny Lagg (Top Methanol) and Jimmy Ålund (Pro Stock) claimed the number one qualifying positions at the Summit Racing Scandinavian Nationals at Tierp Arena and will lead their respective categories into Sunday’s eliminations. Although not a race for the FIA European Drag Racing Championship, the 25 teams from the three FIA classes will do everything they can in tomorrow’s eliminations to take the trophy with them back home.
Perfect track conditions and cooler temperatures made the second day of qualifying of the Summit Racing Scandinavian Nationals very interesting. There were numerous improvements in all three categories.
In Pro Modified Jan Ericsson stormed to a great 5.79 seconds to take over the number one qualifying position from Friday leader Andreas Arthursson. The FIA European record holder himself improved to 5,80 seconds but even that was not enough to remain the number one qualifier after five runs. Michael Gullqvist was also one of the many improvements. The Swede recorded 5.83 seconds to take over the number three position from Andres Arnover. Mats Eriksson and David Vegter remained in fifth and sixth position. Marck Harteveld was the seventh driver to record a 5-second run with 5.97 seconds. Michel Tooren, like Vegter and Harteveld also from The Netherlands, is the number eight qualifier with 6.10 seconds.
In Pro Stock Jimmy Ålund was in a class of his own. The multiple FIA European Pro Stock champion improved to 6.53 seconds to claim the number one position. Stefan Ernryd is second (6.63 seconds) and Richard Sundblom, who improved to 6.66 seconds, third.
In Top Methanol Jonny Lagg couldn’t improve on his Friday performance but the 5.41 seconds from Friday qualifying was enough to remain the number one qualifier. Daniel Jedborn is second and Tony Bryntesson third.
