TTA – So it begins.

Last week consisted of three testdays for the new racing series here in Sweden. I went to both Karlskoga and Anderstorp Raceway to check out the TTA testing and deliver pictures to the organisation.
It actually started on may first as a sort of a shakedown on an airfield outside of Karlskoga.
That was the first time they started these completely new cars, and there were some minor issues in the beginning but after some adjusting and other magic tricks they started rolling out on the runway.

The actual testing started at Karlskoga on wednesday with a crystal clear blue sky and warm winds, sometimes it´s easy being a photographer. Tony Welam joined me for the day so that we could cover different things.

Down at Anderstorp the testing continued on thursday and friday. Last time i shot real racecars there was back in 2007 when WTCC was here in Sweden. Well i actually shot a duel there as well between the TTA concept car and a STCC car last fall, but anyways. At Anderstorp i was joined by Micke Fransson and we split the tasks in two.

I´m looking forward to see these cars go at it on the tracks this summer and it all starts this weekend on Karlskoga Motorstadion, go check it out if you can.

Let me give you a taste of what it´s gonna be like.

One Trackback

  1. By TTA Magazine, it’s out there! on 2012/06/25 at 09:47

    […] Our new baby is out, and i mean that in two ways. We had a baby girl three weeks ago, and she is fantastic. Another cool thing is that there is a new racemag out there that hit the streets just in time before the race in Gothenburg 16/6. We at Teknikens Värld put this together in collaboration with the TTA people. Most of my part, photographically, was done during the testdays earlier this year, which you can see here. […]
