Harris was very disappointing. Engine failure during the practice. In his 4th ride he finally looked allright but in his other 4 heats he was not on the pace at all, probably had engine problems again.

There was a Long-track speedway meeting in Sweden last week, at the Axevalla trotting track at Skara, with riders from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. This revival for motorcycle racing at this venue attracted nearly 3,000 spectators. The last time a long-track motorcycle race meeting was held at Skara was more than 30 years ago in the year 1983.

 

Here is a short video to give an impression of the venue and the racing https://hallpressen-tv.solidtango.com/video/syntolkad-longtrack-speedway-pa-axevalla?html5=0

The Swedes are doing awesome. I think it's pretty cool to have them involved, they will race at the WLT teams as well.

 

@iris123 come to Eenrum for the GP :)

For what substance? Very surprising!

 

Peter Jansson can be named as the man behind swedish revival of longtrack. Been gathering momemtum now for maybe the third year...
