Bengt-Åce Gustavsson fills us in on how the Scandinavian season is shaping up…
Historic Racing in Sweden:
All racing in Sweden was banned during April, May and June. Now we are hoping that we can start racing in July, but we don´t know for sure. I´ll give you the calendar as it looks today: The opening round at Kinnekulle should have been raced in the middle of May, but is now moved to 5-6 September. The biggest race, Velodromloppet GP in Karlskoga, is moved to 9-11 October. Svenskt Sportvagnsmeeting at Ring Knutstorp is now postponed to next year. Our best hope is that the race meeting at Mantorp on 21-23 August will take place as scheduled, along with Falkenberg on 18-20 September.
The first round at Våler was cancelled and they are still looking for another date. After the season-opener at Rudskogen on 26-28 June, we also think that they will run Rudskogen Asfalt Classic on 14-15 August and Våler on 4-6 September.
The opening round at Jyllandsringen was on 20-21 June. It was meant that the Danish drivers should compete at Rudskogen in Norway in August, but that depends whether the borders are open or not… Next up is Ring Djursland on 5-6 September. The final is planned at Ring Knutstorp in Sweden on 26-27 September, but that will also depend on the border opening. The Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix is now scheduled to run on 9-11 October.
The opening round in Kemora is moved to 25-26 July and for the moment the first races will be at Botnia on 4-5 July. Hopefully, the Finn’s biggest race meeting, at Ahvenisto on 14-16 August, will take place as planned, along with the final at KymiRing on 5-6 September.
