Street Week Sweden organized the Southern Swing “Drag-N-Drive” 2023 during a stretched week 28 that began already on Saturday with inspection of all participants’ cars. Sunday then became the first competition day at the historic Mantorp Park outside Linköping. The combination of drag racing and driving experience makes the event unique in Sweden where 200 “street cars” compete to drive really fast on closed drag racing tracks. A 1/8-mile long strip with tracks ranging from pure asphalt to prepped. Malmö Raceway offered the best grip where low 4s could be achieved, the best time being 4.09. Since the teams must drive their cars between the tracks, it’s not enough to be fast on the track, but you must have the ability to make everything work even the 150 miles that make up the transport stretch during the week where Emmaboda, Vårgårda, and Laxå were also visited.
