The Swedish Motorcycle and Snowmobile Federation (SVEMO) forms a national team in Dragracing. The aim is to support the riders in their competing and raise the status of the selected riders in their quest for sponsors.
It’s first and foremost a support for the riders in their international ventures. A national team spot brings status and gives them greater opportunities in their hunt for sponsors, says Peder Eneroth, Chairman of the Dragracing section, SVEMO.
The selected riders are:
The riders compete in four different classes, but will however, be traveling together. Per Bengtsson and Peter Svensson will travel to Valdosta, USA. Ulf Ögge and Kalle Lyrén will compete in Pomona and Las Vegas. All of these will also, together with Rickard Gustafsson, be competing in this year's European Championship Series.
The objective of the national team is World Cup medals. Today there is no World Cup in Dragracing but we are working on having one in a few years. These gentlemen will then be medal candidates of very high rank, says Peder Eneroth.
