When the experienced Lennart Olsson highlights features that describe a good drag racing driver, he ponders for a moment.

- You need to be calm, and you need a good team with you. And then you have to be quick to react. The latter is also something girls turn out to be better at than guys many times, says Olsson.

- Like Finnish Anita Mäkelä, multiple Euro champion. Very quick reactions, and she drives fast - and she is perhaps the favorite of the drivers who will come to the competition in Tierp.

Anita Mäkelä is now competing in the heaviest division, Top Fuel Dragster.
Here the speeds and the g-forces make both spectators and drivers lose their breath,
Or, what about 0-100 km/h in under a second, and top speeds of nearly 500 km / h?

- And you will feel a chop when you release the brake screens, there are tremendous g-forces that come in to play then, Lennart Olsson says.

There are also skilled Swedes on site in Tierp, to take up the fight with, among others, Anita Mäkelä.
Sweden's only professional in Top Fuel Dragster is called Mikael Kågered, and has been a champion in Europe, just like Mäkelä.

- “Micke” is dragracing professionally today and has experience from many different classes, says Olsson.

In addition to Top Fuel Dragster, there will be added entertainment from several other classes, such as Top Methanol Dragster, Pro Stock Car, and Top Fuel Bike.

The competitions in Tierp will start on Thursday, June 6, and will continue throughout the weekend until Sunday, June 9.
