I’ve been following street racing in Sweden for years. Magazines, online publications, and video crews have been sharing the action on the highways of Sweden for decades and each and every time I see the action I just want to go to see it in person. I’m jealous of Kyle and the guys at 1320Video, because they have gotten to experience all this first hand. Maybe I can convince them to let me tag along one year. Until then, I’m going to enjoy the hell out of their videos just like all of you. This is street racing at it’s finest.
The racing on the highway seems crazy, and it is risky as hell because the cops come all the time, but these races have multiple rounds and are much more than just making one good pass down the road. I know the amount of money on the line is sizable and that every car on site truly believes it can win it all. The variety in Sweden is one thing that make me drool. Big blocks, small blocks, LS, rotary engines, inlines, you name it they have it on the streets of Sweden. And don’t forget the all-wheel drive crowd that is on hand. Big tire or 4 smaller tires? Which do you choose? Everyone has an opinion, but this isn’t racing on paper, it’s racing on the street.
