The Finals 2019

End of season, and it had its ups and downs.

At The Finals at Santa Pod we had some problmes with the rear-end during fridays qualifications. The rear-end was fixed until second round of the day. But Simon had to shut of again.

Saturday continued with problems and in the last round of the day, Simon had to shut of the car again, as the wheels did´nt spin. Simon had one qualifying round that got him the 5th place in the ladder. In first round out he had Robin Norén.

Simon had to turn off the engine after the burn out, and was pushed back.

Now back to the workshop and make plans for next season. One win this season got the spirit growing. And we will be back


Summit Racing Equipment Internationals 2019

Right now, we got a bracket car!

Simon ended up as no 10 in the qualifying list this weekend at 6,71sec/328km/h. A tuff field at Tierp Arena and the Summit Racing Equipment internationals 2019. From Hockenheim Ring the team just did a touch and go at home in the workshop and then straight to Tierp.

In the qualifying Simon seemed to be drive a bracket car as he ended up on 6.71 sec in 1st , 2nd  and 5th  rounds.


-In the third round the valve broke so we had to pass the 4th round, says Simon. Changed engine to the 5th round and still did a 6,71 sec round. Started at a 6th qualifying sport but ended on the 10th   and by that outside the ladder.


Now there will be some updates until the Finals at Santa Pod in just a couple of weeks.  



Hockenheim - out in first round

Q1 was ok with a 6.77 sec/330 km/h run, whicht got us an 6th qualifying spot , in round two and three things started to happen, not in a positive way thue. Then we had Jimmy Ålund in first elimination round on Sunday. But did our best to beat him. Simon had a better reakton, but Jimmy was too quick to keep on distance. At the 1000 foot he had us.
Now we´re heading back home for a quick stop and some service. Then we´re heading north to Tierp Arena. New track, new event, new challanges. See you there!


Kauhava - Our first win!

A very different weeekend here at Finlands new dragracing track in Kauhava.

It started with a very difficult track, that more or less was gone on saturday. Then was restored until sunday. We smashed the first one engine, but it wasn´t damage to bad. Changed to the second engine, smashed that one, resored the first one, putted that in again. And! won the whole event with this new beautiful car. Are we happy or are we happy!!

  "This buss is going to roll very! easy and smooth down to  Hockenheim" says Mikael Sjökvist, where the next European Championship event is held in about a  month.

Back from Scandinavian Internats


A new personal best at 6,72 sec and qualifies as no 4 makes this weekend a great racing weekend. Perfect air, track, spectators, racers. But unfortunately one engine broke. But luckily there are a couple more to use. Simon had Thomas Lindström in first round and had to shut off at half track. And that was the end of the weekend.

The car is back in the garage to get some love before we all heading to the Finals at Santa Pod in just about a week. Simon is at the seventh spot in the championship and hope to get a bit higher before the season ends.

Tierp Internationals - here we come!


Samantha Racing team is on their way to Tierp Arena. It's been a long holiday since Alastaro and now the team are eager to get on track again. And we welcome our 25 guests that coming to visit and follow us in the pit and at the track.

See You there folks! :)

Back from Alastaro

Back home after a great but not so great weekend. Wethervice it was very nice, maybe even to nice, as it was a bit hot at the track on friday. But it got a bit cooler during the weekend. Racevice it wasn't Samantha Race teams weeknd. Qualification runs was difficult and the track wasnt easy. It was not conditions for fast times for Simon this time. He ended up as Q8, which means he had to meet Q1 Richard Sundblom in the eliminations. Richard  was driving consistently whole weekend. And that was that for the weekend. He was hard to beet. Simon was 0,02 sec faster on the tree but Richard was running faster and ended up at 6.65 sec against Simons 6.84 sec. Simon is now no 6 in the European Championship table after the third FIA race in Finland. Next round is at Tierp Arena in end of august for Pro Stock class. Jimmy Ålund is in the lead before Thomas Lindström, Magnus Petersson, Michael Malmgren and Richard Sundblom.
For more results check:
Simon Gustafsson
Simon not so satified with the weekend. But the car is not damage and there is just adjustments that has to be done until next race at Tierp Arena. Plenty of time to fix.

- The guys have updated and checked the car, made some changes here and there, says Simon. We really looking forward to go to Finland again and hope for some good numbers there.

Simon celebrates one year in the Samatha Pro Stock Racing team this weekend. A good opportunity to do another personal best time and speed.

Tierp Internationals 2015

New personal best!

Friday was a perfect day for racing. Nice weather and a perfect track. Simon did a new personal best in Q2 at the 1/8 et 4,30 sec. - A new carburetor was installed so that wasn't a full round as we wanted so test it, says Simon. But Q3 that we´re waiting for now is going to be a full throttle race.

Tierp Internationals 2015


Team Samantha Racing is ready for the second FIA Championship race at Tierp Arena. As they did a personal best in England, a couple of weeks ago, they are really keen to make another one at Tierp Arena. And of course goes for a win.

- We did found some problems in the rear end that the team have been working hard to fix that after they got back to the shop in Nybro, says Simon. Also the engine got some update service and are now fit for fight again. 

FIA/FIM Main Event 2015


Back from a good weekend at Santa Pod Raceway. Simon had some problems at the start but last qualification round he manages to make a new PB in 60ft -1,0027, 1/8 mile ET - 4.3338 sec and 1/4 mile ET - 6.7416 sec. In first Elimination round Simon got Thomas Lindström and was aming for a win. So he took a chans at the startline. But with a redlight at just -0,002 sec he was of the race for this weekend. Now the team is back in Sweden and preparing for next FIA round at Tierp Arena in just about a week.

- A big thanks to my team and all of our sponsors! greets Simon. CHM maskin, Göthes industribeslag, AXS Nordic, Glas & Bygg, Geze Scandinavia, Järlebys Måleri.

The Samantha Racing team is lined up at Santa Pod Raceway

Unfortunally Simon lost the start with a redlight at just -0,002 sec vs Thomas Lindström in first elimination round.



The team is back from Malmo Raceway and it all went well.
- We did some testings and the response was good and we got what we wanted, Simon says. Not so good times though, as we had an old engine in the car. The weather was ok but a bit cold. It´s good to be back on track again and we´r looking forward to race in England in a few weeks.

European Championship Round 1


Simon and team is prepared for 2015

Team Samantha Racing are now preparing for the first round in the European Championship at Santa pod England. Simon Gustafsson is staying behind the wheel this season as well. And this year it´s going to be a full season. A new cylinder head and intake from Larry Morgan is the news at the car. A few updates in the rearend have been done as well. The team is almoast the same as last year with a little addidtion with a brand new member. Oliver is his namne and is just a few month old so far. But for sure he will be helping his dad Simon to drive the car, eventually.

But first of all the team is making a visit at Malmoe Raceway this weekend for some testing.

Santa Pod


European Finals på Santa Pod raceway bjöd på både med och motgångar. Vi skrapade ihop tillräckligt med poäng för att klättra till en 5 plats i FIA Pro Stock! Ett väldigt bra resultat för Simon som första års förare och även ett karriär bästa placering för Samantha Racing. Kvalet började lite krångligt med däckskak de 3 första rundorna, i den 4 kom vi imål på 6,78 vilket gav oss en 5 plats i kvallistan. Vi fick möta Magnus Petersson i första elimineringsrundan där han slog oss med en 6,67 mot vår 6,90.

Vi vill passa på att tacka hela teamet och alla våra sponsorer för säsongen 2014 !


European Finals at Santa Pod raceway was both good and bad for Samantha racing, one good thing was that we earned enough points to get the 5 position in FIA Pro Stock championship! A very good first year as a driver for Simon and also a carrer best for Samantha Racing in Pro Stock. The race itself was a struggle, the 3 first qualification rounds went in to bad tireshake of the startline, Q4 was better, a 6,78 got us the 5 spot in qualifying and we were up against Magnus Petersson in first round of eliminations. He beat us whit a 6,67 to our 6,90.

We would like to thank all crewmembers and all of our sponsors for 2014! 

Tierp EM


Tävlingen på Tierp började väldigt bra med ett stabilt kval med tiderna 6,75 6,74 och 6,75. Förlorade första eliminerings rundan mot Michael Malmgren efter att ha tappat fästet i starten. 2012 års världmästare i Prostock Allen Johnson och Adam Lambert från Penske Racing shocks var på besök på Tierp Arena vilket var väldigt uppskattat av många.  


The race at Tierp started very well whit a nice couple of qualification rounds, 6,75 6,74 and 6,75. Lost first round to Michael Malmgren after shaking the tires right at the hit. 2012 Prostock world champion Allen Johnson and Adam Lambert from Penske Racing shocks visited Tierp Arena and that was very appreciated by many.



Är inte mycket att skriva om tävlingen i Hockenheim, banan var inte bra nog för Prostock bilar så alla i klassen kom överens om att inte köra mer än en kvalrunda på grund av säkerhetsrisken.


Not much to say about the race in Hockenheim, the trackconditions were not safe for Prostock cars so we decided not to run more than the first qualifiying round.

Tierp Test


Helgen den 25-27/7-14 var vi på Tierp arena och körde några test rundor. Allt fungerade bra, vi körde 5 rundor, första svängen underskattade vi banan och hade lite låga startvarv och körde 7,13. Sedan gick det bara bättre, 6,81 6,75 6,79 och avslutade med en 6,76. Detta var givetvis personbästa för Simon men även teambästa för Samantha racing ! Nästa stopp blir Nitrolympix på Hockenheim ring den 8-10/8-14


 Last weekend the 25-27July-14 was a test session at Tierp Arena. We made 5 rounds, everything worked out well. In the first round we underestimated the track and had too low launch rpm, that resulted in a 7,13. After that it was all better whit 6,81 6,75 6,79 and 6,76. This was of course a new personal best for Simon and also a new teambest for Samantha racing ! Next stop will be Nitrolympix at Hockenheimring, Germany the 8-10 of august.



Banan i Alastaro var helt nyasfalterad, väldigt slätt och fint men tyvärr inte så mycket preparerat. Tävlingen började bra med en 6,95 och 319 km/h i första kvalrundan. På fredag kväll sattes den nya motorn Morgan i bilen. Slutade på en tredje plats i kvalet och fick möta Christian Sagelv i första rundan på Söndagen. Bilen rullade lite i stage vilket resulterade i en rödlykta. Vi ligger nu på en 7 plats i FIA serien i Prostock. Nästa stopp kommer bli Tierp Arena den 25-27 Juli där vi kommer köra lite test inför EM tävlingen i Tyskland i 8-10 Augusti.


The track in Alastaro was just resurfaced and was very smooth but the preparation was not so good. We started very good with a 6,95 319 km/h on the first pass. On Friday night the new enginge Morgan was installed in the car. We ended up as number 3 on the qualification list and was paired against Christian Sagelv in first round on Sunday. When Simon put it on the rev limiter in the stage lights the car moved just a little forward and turned on a redlight. Right now we are in the 7 spot in the FIA Prostock championship. Next stop will be Tierp Arena 25-27 July to do some testing before the championship round in Germany 8-10 August.

Scandinavian Internationals. Tierp Arena. 6,83 sek. och kval 7a. Utslagen första rundan av Ålund.


Hockenheim. Qualified as no:1, but the track was in realy bad shape. Pro Stock and most of the FIA classes where canceled on raceday.


Hockenheim. Vi kvalade som nummer 1, men banan var så dålig att dom flesta FIA-klasserna inte körde på söndagen.


Alastaro was not what we intended.

We only got down the track once out of four. The reason was that we switched to the blue Hemi engine that was recently renovated with other carbs and a new intake. Took 3 runs to adjust it, 4th run we made it down the track, but failed to qualify with 1/100 of a second.



Alastaro blev inte vad vi hade tänkt.

Vi fick endast till en repa av fyra. Orsaken var att vi bytte till den blåa hemi-motorn som var nyrenoverad med andra förgasare och nytt insug. Tog 3 repor att justera in den, 4e repan tog vi oss ner för strippen men missade att kvala in med en 1/100 sekund.


6.82 s

The 12th fastest time in Europe ...

In Tierp Arena we finally got  it right. 6.88-324 km / h in qualifying and elimination 6.82, where we unfortunately lost. But 6.82 in a 16 year old Dodge!! Awesome.


6,82 s.

Den 12e snabbaste tiden i Europa...

I Tierp Arena så fick vi äntligen till det. 6.88- 324 km/h i kvalet och 6.82 elimineringen, där vi tyvärr forlorade.

Men 6.82 i en 16 år gammal Dodge!!!!  Häftigt.

New Driver

Ny förare


Samantha has completed its collaboration with Peter Dahlin whos not going to run the Dodge more (Thanks Peter).

The team will instead to invest Locally which means that Jonas Engdahl from Nybro will be a new team member and driver.

Jonas has previously stalled in the class, Super ET Pro, where he has run a compressor-fed Altred. It will be a bit tough with licenses and etc but it may take the time it takes, most important is that Jonas feel good.


Samantha har avslutat sitt samarbete med Peter Dahlin som ej kommer att köra Dodgen mer (Tack Peter).

Teamet kommer istället att satsa "hemvävt" vilket innebär att Jonas Engdahl från Nybro blir team medlem och förare.

Jonas har tidigare kört i klassen Super ET Pro där han har kört en kompressormatad Altred. Det blir lite strul med licenser och dyligt men det får ta den tid det tar, viktigaste är att Jonas känner sig tillfreds.

Season plans
