MSA British Drag Racing Championship

Car: ’99 Chevrolet Camaro
Occupation: 
Home Town/Country: Gothenburg, Sweden
Team:
Best ET: 6.255 seconds
Best Terminal Speed: 227.16mph

One of Pro Mod’s proven heavyweights, the 2005 NDRS Bilsport champ sat out for 2006. Returning to action at Mantorp Park in July, Patrik qualified 12th and reached round 2. Further testing in readiness for Santa Pod’s FIA European Finals (MSA Rnd. 4) paid off handsomely.

While many around him at the Euro Finals were clocking new records and personal bests, Patrik rose from 13th in the field and, running no quicker than 6.33, defeated four higher-ranked opponents to score a sensational event victory. His conquests included new European ET record-holder Mikael Lindahl and new FIA European Champion Michael Gullqvist.

Ominously for the opposition, Patrik and his team plan to contest the full season in 2008.
