Mantorp Park

One of Sweden's lovely race tracks is Mantorp Park. The track has some pretty interesting corners along with a drag strip that serves as the backstretch. Mantorp Park is home for both great road racing as well as great drag racing. I usually know of Mantorp Park being a venue for FIA Drag Racing. Mantorp Park has been in existance since 1969. You can find this track in Mantorp, Sweden; which is (and I am guessing) about 110 miles west southwest of Stockholm. It hosts many events ranging from various forms of circuit racing (including the STCC), drag racing, karting, and more. Earlier this year, Mantorp Park started on coming up with a drift course. Time to show some love for all of you Swedish folk by talking about my personal favorite Swedish race track.

Here is a track map of Mantorp Park (best I could find and use):

^ from: formula2.net - Mantorp Park comes in at less than two miles in length, but features some tough corners and one wicked long backstretch. The long course (which does not include New Bend) is greyed out.

The main feature of Mantorp Park is the backstretch that leads onto the drag strip. The fastest cars can get to some pretty high speeds down the drag strip. After the sharp right and the the smooth left-hander, the following straight features either the short course or the long course. The long course goes the full-length straight. Either way, this course is a great challenge. And if you're going to Mantorp Park for some drag racing, you won't be disappointed to see some good old fashioned drag racing in Sweden! :)
