BRIEFING FROM THE OTHER FIA CHAMPIONSHIP TRACKS 2014:
ALASTARO, FINLAND - New surface
multi Motorsport arena Alastaro Circuit was resurfaced with new asphalt
at the beginning of May 2014. The update of the track was made possible
by the track owner family joining forces with the organization
Drag Race Finland, which include well known drivers profiles Kristian
Nyström (Pro Modified), Richard Sundblom (Pro Stock) and Timo
Savolainen (Pro Stock Motorcycle) to mention a few. Link to Alastaro Circuit´s website. Organizers for the Nitro Nationals July 3-6th is The Finnish Hot Rod Association, FHRA.
TIERP ARENA, SWEDEN - New Owner
April 2014, Tierp Arena got a new owner (following a bankrupcy in
October 2013 and legal procedures after that). The intended mid-June
Sweden Internationals event was called off in late April as the new
owner must build up the on site operation in Tierp from zero and time was
too short. Mr Cemoni Ohlsson whose company Sånna Förvaltning AB,
bought the Tierp Arena has assured us the Scandinavian Internationals August 22-25th
will be run according to plan. Mr Ohlsson also run the Nya Sturup Raceway
and also have operations in the hotel industry in Sweden.
The website of Tierp Arena is going to be updated on the progress so please check www.tierparena.com if interested.
The 3rd round of the FIA Championship is the NitrOlympX at HockenheimRing August 8-10th www.nitrolympx.de
