Right now Jonnies in Borlänge at ME Racings shop, working around the clock to to be done before the race in England on the 23rd to 26th May. We would like to give LG, Mats Eriksson and the Green Goblin a huge thank's for letting us be here working!
Jonnies own car is still in the States, and were planning to leave it there for the whole season of 2014.
