The second competition of the Pro Twin Bike Swedish Championship 2018 takes place at Kjula Dragway in Eskilstuna Saturday May 26 - Sunday May 27, about 100 km's west of Stockholm. At Kjula Dragway the distance is 1/4 of an English Mile.
On Saturday May 26 the teams drive qualifying heats. BMC Racing Team performs well during the three first heats. At one point the entire bike lifts from the tarmac and is airborned. Bandido Raffe 1 %er quickly regains control over the bike and finishes the heat properly.
In the start of the fourth qualifying heat, the engines turbo breaks. A bearing in the turbo fails and causes oil to gash out in smoke. It is a very hot day with temperatures above 30 degrees celsius. The heat of the day may have had a negative effect on the turbo. BMC Racing Team have ordered a new turbo which is due to arrive before the weekend, this week.
The new turbo will be fitted and the enginge made ready in good time before the next competition. The next competition will take place at Sundsvall Raceway in Sundsvall June 29 - July 01. To be continued...
