Time Attack – A Few Mor Pictures From The Kinnekulle Circuit

The first post from this Time Attack event was missing a few pictures due to time restraints on my part, but here goes. 🙂

Time Attack at Kinnekulle Ring Racing Circuit!

Spent a day at the track with the kids and my father. The Time Attack format is nice if you want to see many different cars of different kinds, often extreme garage-builds with big power and lots of more or less scientific aero. There are many classes ranging from “Club”, which are basically  road cars with jus minor modifications and street tyres, to “Pro” and “Wildcard” that are without limitations and that use slicks. This day unfortunately most of the extreme cars were not on track due to rain or reliability issues.

Ex Factory – Where Cementa Used To Live

 

The Cement Factory was an important part of the prosperous development of  20th century Sweden. In the mid 1970’s, competition stiffened and the site was deemed too small to be profitable in the long term. In 1979 the machinery stopped for the last time. Quite a few jobs disappeared, but since small businesses have been thriving in the area in increasing numbers after WW2, most of the workforce found new jobs over time. In just a few years after Cementa closed it’s doors, Paroc opened up manufacturing of stone based wool for insulation and is today the largest employer in Hällekis. Population dropped by about 30% from WW2 up to 1970, and has since stayed pretty much the same. The surrounding landscape including Kinnekulle and lake Vänern offers stunning scenery that show lots of trace of the historic importance of the land around Kinnekulle, including Swedens oldest functioning church Västerplana Kyrka and Husaby, where Swedens first christian king was christened and baptized.

The Wasteland – Closer Than You Think

I personally enjoy visiting those abandoned spots in everyday society that has been forgotten or simply hangs there in limbo until suddenly the town or its owner remembers it and decides to do something about it. Until then, they are there for us to enjoy, let fantasy rip, use visually…

My number one hobby is cars and racing cars. This picture is from a track-meet with Locost Sweden, a seven-escque replicas builders club. That means people that build cars that resemble the Lotus Super Seven sportscar that even competed in Formula-1 a few rounds, with suprisingly good results even though a total underdog when it comes to horsepower. Small, light and very quick through the corners. The most fun you can have on a slate of tarmac for less money than a Ariel Atom. This particular car belongs to Morty.

The abandoned road between the now demolished cement-factory in Hellekis (Hällekis) in Sweden, and the adjacent quarry about 2 km to the west. Here it crosses the railroad. Click for full view.
