V8 Thunder Cars Flexes its Muscles Once More at Falkenberg Raceway

V8 Thunder Cars Flexes its Muscles Once More at Falkenberg Raceway

2016-08-21 Finally, the V8 Thunder Cars (V8TC) Series summer break was over. It has been five weeks since I heard the lovely V8 engines sound (and smell) from the Camaros, Mustangs and the Challengers roaring at the race track. A 2.5-hour early Sunday morning drive was completed without any problems. My travelling companions and I were among the first race fans inspecting the race track and garage areas. For the first time, I moved from the green grass to sit…

V8 Thunder Cars: With no help from above at Falkenberg Raceway

V8 Thunder Cars: With no help from above at Falkenberg Raceway

It’s 06.00 (6 AM) and my car is loaded with all the stuff that a day at the racetrack demands. My long time travel companion (and father) and me are set to start our 2.5 hour journey to Falkenberg Raceway. We were prepared for somewhat rough weather conditions at the track but could not imagine that the famous “Swedish summer” would be this bad. More of this topic later. It’s the third race weekend for V8 Thunder Cars (V8TC) Swedish…

V8 Thunder Cars: Real American power at Ljungbyhed Raceway

V8 Thunder Cars: Real American power at Ljungbyhed Raceway

It’s early, somewhat chilly, Saturday morning, June 11. It’s time for V8 Thunder Cars (V8TC) to race hard for the second time this season. I’ve got the same excitement as on the season premiere day. Ljungbyhed Raceway is a new track for me (and for V8TC) and it tickles a little extra to visit a new racetrack for the first time. As a race fan, you always want to see tough and hard races. I’m thinking about the track layout….

Strong performance by V8 Thunder Cars at Mantorp Park

Finally, Sunday morning was here. It was, however, not an ordinary Sunday morning, it was a season’s premiere Sunday morning for V8 Thunder Cars (V8TC). I think you race fans all know that magic and enthusiastic tickling feeling that goes through your body on a season’s premiere day. I woke up 03.30 (3.30 AM) to a chilly but clear sky morning. My old diesel “war-horse” (my Nissan Qashqai car) was set to depart at 04.30. At this time of the…
