- 10:18 lap time
Featured cars (in no particular order):
- Volvo S60
- Renault Megane Wagon
- Audi A3
- Renault Clio (2x)
- Porsche GT2/3 RS (4x)
- BMW M1 (2x)
- BMW series 3 (2x)
- Renault Alpine
- This was my 4th lap and also the slowest due to the large amounts of
traffic and a yellow flag situation after Adenauer Forst -- around 3:48
into the video till 05:05.
- You can listen to me complaining about the traffic and two particular
cars that did not want to be overtaken: The white Renault Clio (he doesn't
lift to let me pass after Adenauer Forst even though I was clearly faster) and the Renault Megane Wagon
(Using all the track and tried to close me when I was already on his side
after the Carroussel -- that is when I rang the horn). In the video, due to
lens distortion, you cannot really make how near I was to the cars in
front, but trust me, I just chose not to attack and risk.
- The track is dangerous enough as is, so I don't get it why people "defend
positions"... I had no problems to let cars that were remotely faster past me, but there were a lot of
nutters that thought they were in a race... My number one objective was to
drive home again in the same car I got there with so... no point in taking
stupid risks. No awards at the end!
- The logging software went borked on me so I only managed to get logs for
the last lap -- there are 3 other laps on video coming up soon, and all
those are sub-10 min laps.
If you have video footage of my car, please let me know! :)

Saab History Documentary
In tribute to Saab, here is an old documentary about the history of the
company. It is from the mid 90's and the quality was from a VHS tape. I do
not own the rights to this video. This is for fair use and analysis.

Fatal high speed police chase - Unmarked SAAB 9-5 Aero vs Kawasaki ZX-10R *Translated*
***EDIT This video doesn´t show the crash! At 47:57 the chopper report the
bike has wrecked. There is no pics of the bike after the crash in this
video. Subtitles is only availible first 20 minutes.
This guy did only have license to drive cars, caught riding a bike can
result in a 6 month ban. Speeding at 81 km/h over the limit (and more) will
revoke your license for 8 month. Bottom line, many riders going fast on
1000cc sportbikes will run. Choppers are used rarely to catch speeders***
A Kawasaki ZX-10R fly by an unmarked SAAB. The biker has no mirrors and
ain´t aware of he is being followed by the police.
At 14.30 the bike starts to pick up the pace.
At 17.10 he looks back and guns it. Soon he is gone and this unit doesn´t
have the bike insight again. Although the bike is far away this unit
continues to chase him for 30 minutes. More than 20 unites including a
chopper were involved in this chase.
A heating debate started in Sweden if police acting appropriate due to the
fact this was only a traffic violation. The biker died in the end when he
slammed into a road barrier, the passenger didn´t suffer any injuries. The
rider was just a regular chap going out for a ride on his ZX-10R equipped
with a Racefit Growler
Nothing happens in the last 20 minutes, just radio traffic
Boat with 2 Saab's turbocharged engines
Boat: Vator 22 ft. with two turbocharged
SAAB B234 engines.
It's my cousin's boat and he has made most of effort on this job.
My cousin has followed my standing mile races with my Saabs for years now.
Late 2010 he said that he will get rid of his old Mercruisers and put a
Saab's engines instead, if I help to tune those for a boat use.
So here we are :)
These are an early tests and we are looking forward for summer 2013 ;-)
