TBR’s very own bearded wonder, Andreas Dahlstrom has qualified for the inaugural Swedish Championship, sanctioned by the Swedish Motorsport Association and officially part of the SM-veckan – or Swedish Championship week, where a variety of sports have official championships – and will be broadcast on Swedish TV.
One of just 24 qualifiers, Andreas managed to beat hundreds of other entrants for a chance to take a crack at the championship. Entrants were given the opportunity to qualify in one of 3 different combinations of car and track. Andreas was able to qualify in the Mclaren MP4/8 at Silverstone.
Unfortunately, the finals will be run on *cough* rFactor 2 and run in the Radical SR3-RSX at the Indianapolis F1 layout from 2007.
The list of qualifiers is below:
The race will be broadcast on Swedish television on Saturday between 08.30 and 15.30 (with Swedish commentary obviously)
We wish Andreas all the luck in the world in this landmark event (even if it being tun on an inferior simulation!)
