TTA – Racing Elite first Tests

It is along time since my last post, but I thought It’s time to give you an update on the preparation for the Swedish TTA Racing championship.

 
Next weekend the first race of the Swedish TTA RAing elite league will start on the Karlskoga circuit. In the meantime from May 2 till May 5 some test runs have been done on the Anderstorp Raceway and the Karlskoga Motorstadion. The test have shown that the teams and drivers are quite even, which means that all the reaces will very interesting.

This are the three diferent colours that I will like to see in the podium in all, or at least most of the races.

Both drivers, Robin Rudholm (car #2) and Mattias Andersson (car #20) of the Flash Engineering team will be driving a 9-3 with this white blue red livery.

Linus Ohlsson (car #3) from team Tidö will be driving a black 9-3 with golden letters.

And Daniel Hangölf (car #37) also from team Tidö will be sporting this black&white livery.

(BTW, I was very surprised to hear that Poker Wallenberg Jr. is behind team Tidö.)

I like the black and golden livery most, it remembers me from the old JpS F1 Lotus team and I’m looking forward how the Saab drivers will perform, also hoping that we then will know about the future of the Saab brand as a car manufacturer.

And for the ones that like the sound of speed, a short film of the first test days after the jump.

TTA Swedish Racing Elite League

Today we have reported on a Team that is going to compete on a Swedish touring car series with a Saab car. Many were impressed by the pictures of a slightly wider 9-3 with racing livery and a big rear wing.

Some have already explained, that the TTA Swedish Racing Elite League a bit of a farce is because in reality it is only a common chassis with common aerodynamics and a common power train but with a different silhouette emulating different cars that race against each other, and not different cars from different manufacturers with their own power train and a chassis.

Currently Saab is in a very weak position, and the fact that one of the main teams in that competition have decided to use the Saab 9-3 silhouette instead of an AUDI/Honda/Alfa/Chevrolet, you name it, is a big honour for Saab. Further the teams competing with the Saab livery will have much more chances to make it on the podium or win races than any “true” Saab could have now. And at last but not least, on May 12 the competition will start and the last race will be on September 29. If the acquisition of Saab is prosperous, this will help polish the image of Saab, if it is not Swedish Saab fans will at least have some moments of joy.

So if you are interested in this race competition, I’ve prepared some facts after the jump.
