Tierp FIA event 1 person 4 days plus camping pay at gate Kr 1850 plus Kr 600 camping fee (3 nights) TOTAL COST Kr2450 / £237
Clucking Bell!!!

I had no idea. I think Tierp are confusing Dragrace fans with F1 fans, I know the Swedes are used to paying more for some stuff but that really is a huge jump from the Pod. I wonder what the difference is between what they charged at Mantorp?? I think they might be asking too much. I suppose the answer will come this saeason, there's not a lot of point in investing in a brand new 20,000 stadium style dragstrip then having to price the tickets so high that they won't be filled by paying customers. A Tierp isn't the sort of thing that can be taken away by the repo' men though.

IIRC, Mantorp was roughly about the same price for a 4-day ticket as the Pod, when I went there 4 years ago

Mantorp was more expensive than the Pod for the times I went there. Probably by about 50% or so, from memory. But it does look like Tierp is even more expensive than that.

Factor in flights and car hire, and Tiepr must be comparable with Gainesville price wise...

So, Lex Joon is going to America to try and run the full NHRA tour in 2013 (eurodragster.com today). Always sad to see the Top Fuel ranks in Europe depleted but I'm sure we'd all wish him the best of luck in fulfilling his dream. My one hope; you'll learn an immense ammount running with the pro's for a full season so I hope he takes a mainly European crew and that that knowledge and experience comes back to Europe after he's done.

I read it as the fact that Lex and Gerda are moving out there full time to allow them to develope contacts and try and get a deal together.

Must be nearly impossible trying to do that for Europe, with an odd visit to the US thrown in.

Fair play to him, and best of luck.

Looks like Urs Erbacher might be making way for someone else to occupy his seat in the dragster, things are a bit vague at the present with only a brief allusion to the possibility on facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/UrsErbacher

I hate it when they do the "keep guessing" thing.

Reads to me as if Sascha will be taking the wheel. Who knows. He used to ride the Shops V-Rod and is one of the stars of Kings of Nitro.

Sascha has pretty much confirmed that if they can get backing it will be a two car team.

I have thought for some time that Drag Racing would do better to promote itself in Europe as an "Extreme Motorsport" rather than a "Professional Motorsport".

Yeah they 'just turned up' no doubt nothing to do with the hard work the Lindbergs did behind the scenes.
