2012

The racing season 2012 is now almost at the end. We still have one more test race in Tierp 28.9.-29.9. with Hammer 1 -bike and couple of bike presentations in different exhibitions with Hammer 2.

 

We are also, of course, having once again our traditional Season End -party with all of our sponsors and supporters. Everyone is welcome to join us!  The date and the place confirmation comes later, so stay tuned!

 

The Season 2012 has been a great success for us! We achieved two out of our three ambitious goals we set in the beginning of the season.

 

SKULLRACING proudly presents the results after season 2012:

 

We are the Nordic Champion.

We came 3rd in European Championship -series.

We approved our personal best time to 6,61 sec and personal best speed to 352,94 kmh.

We won the Mosten Race Day.

 

But, as you all know, we didn't do this all by ourselves. A huge thanks goes also to our supporters, sponsors, other teams, friends and everyone who has helped us to make this season happened!!

 

THANK YOU!!

Today was a great day - in many ways - the sun was shining after a rainy morning, lot's of people visiting TIerp arena, the spirits high and the track was excellent. These conditions helped us to get a new personal record - Samu hit the finish line at 6.643 sec! Nate drove 6.585 which keeps him on the 1st position in the UEM so far. The evening ended with a trophy from the Nordic Cup and now the team is relaxing and recharging for new races tomorrow. Keep watching for updates!

So we have great news about Super Twin Bike Nordic Challenge. We won it!

 

The last race was in Gardermoen, Norway and it ended before the final race against Per Bengtson. We were really looking forward to race together with Per but once again final round rained out. This was the third time it happened to us out of our four finals...

 

In Gardermoen we ran also our personal speed record 352,94 km/h, so we are close finding out the perfect run! Hopefully you'll see it on Hockenheim this weekend!

 

Here is a link for the Nordic Challenge final standings and  points:

In this serie many of the teams has still good chance to take and win it!

We finally got back home from the 9 days dragracing trip.The whole team has worked hard and everybody gave their best as the results shows.

 

First and second place in the races and second place in both Nordic Cup and UEM points standings.

 

We also got new supporters, sponsors and even friends during these events.

 

First of all we want to send huge thanks with hugs and kisses specially to Åsa Bergqvist who made the new web sites running almost on her own. All the time and effort she's given to this project means a great deal to the team!

 

We want also thank Alastaro Circuit (alastarocircuit.fi) and Tero Tupala for all the help he's always given to us.

 

We had a great time living in the track and 9 days with two teams in small tent has shown us that the people in our teams are not only team mates but a true friends.

 

Baddock's ladies kept their restaurants doors open for the whole week and even organized our teams favourite ciders to the drinklist. That's what we call customer service!

 

Heikki "Heineken" Malinen (Promosport Oy) and Timo Muilu (www.urheilukuvat.net) got again plenty of great footage from the races. You'll find them from the Gallery.

 

And finally the whole team wants to send a huge thanks to Sofia, Mia and Minna! The food was FANTASTIC!
