Oops!... He did it again!
In the third qualifying session Johan had to shut of and pull the shutes after moving violently across the track. Just one more chance then to get a decent competitive run.
In the forth Team Old 51 had put all the pieces in place. Straight down the track and the scoreboard showed 5.977!
This gave us spot three in the list before tomorrows eliminations. Johan is right behind #1 Bruno Bader with 5.946 sec, and #2 Micke Gullqvist at 5.974.

Johan informs that an electrical problem stopped them from entering qualification round number one. That is now fixed, and round two's coming up within the hour.
He has no new news regarding Roger Johanssons crash: —I heard that he had a broken leg and that he had some kind of chest pains. We all hope that he's alright, and will get well soon. Stay strong Roger, Johan says.
There are live streaming and text based reporting available. We are running 2 qualifying runs Saturday, 2 runs on Sunday and eliminations on Monday as it is a bank holiday in England.
Robertson went on red and we won the first elimination despite violent tire shake. In round two we got a nice round, 5.50 and 267 mph for the win.
After the final Jonnie said: —Winner winner chicken dinner! Shook hard and pedaled it and hunt him down! I won with .005sec! Good job to Bogolo who ran a new personal best!
Another small beautiful Wally for Jonnie and Sweden!
