NEW: Bug Run + SCC in cooperation
2013-04-12 We are very pleased to be able to tell that Bug Run and Norwegian organizer SCC has decided to collaborate on a series of drag racing with air-cooled VW’s.
It is Bugsprint Series, which was run on all three Bug Run races last year, now being developed internationally and gets season finale in Norway.
The series is now run over four races:
June 7 to 9 Bug Run, Mantorp Park, 1/4 mile;
5 to 6 July Bug Run Race Day, Malmö Raceway, 1/8 mile,
Aug 2 to 3 Bug Run Classic, Tierp Arena, 1/4 mile;
and the final run in 2013 is
NEW! 9 to 11 August Scandinavian Cal look & Classic, Gardermoen Raceway, 1/4 mile.
The common goal for the organizers is to increase the number of teams that run drag racing with air-cooled VW’s in Scandinavia. The goal is also to attract more participants from countries outside Scandinavia.
The series runs in two classes, Supercharged (SC) and Naturally aspirated (NA). An overall winner crowned by scoring, where the classes are merged. The winning team will win a trip to VW Action in England on August 30-Sept 1.

FIRST NEWS 2013:
1. TWO-DAY DRIVING ON BUG RUN CLASSIC!
Much, much requested: we will run on Tierp Arena both Friday and Saturday during the Bug Run Classic!
Detailed schedule we will come back to you about, but book racing both days! We know that many that have far to travel have wanted this badly. The questions have been numerous from both Norway and the UK, so now we will try it – because we want as many people as possible to come and run on Europe’s fastest dragstrip.
Note: Still Aircooled Only! Watercooled parking outside the gates, but the watercooled VW’s gets the best spots.
More information will follow.
2. PARTY CAMP SITE GROWS AT MANTORP PARK!
Now we have outgrown the Party campsite along Skänningevägen and will move the party scene to the large area between the strip and the highway. New Party campsite is named there.
Sketches will be here on the site about how it will look and we promise you will get there easily. Plus, there will be no problem to walk between New and Old Party campsite.
3. VW DRAG RACING: BUGSPRINT SERIES 2013 ON THE STRIP!
Bugsprint Series at the strip became a great success in 2012, with an increased number of VW’s that ran.
This year we hope to see even more from the whole of northern Europe!
The winner of the series will get free trip and entry- and racing-fee to VW Action at Santa Pod, England, which will be held Friday, August 30 – Sunday 1 september.
