    Pretty good in a car not designed for that kind of racing... I wonder what the spec of the car is...? The engine sounds fantastic...

    The guy driving does an awesome job....

    Cheers,

    Mark...

    how on earth is a DS keeping up with a hot escort on a racetrack... with no bodyroll and very grunty sounding engine Is it one of the works coupes with an SM engine or something

    Notice at the start is does 0-100 in about 8seconds... CX turbo type acceleration but that's a peaky sounding N/A motor

    Come on Shane, it's the aerodynamics of the slopey dash that gives the DS that sort of acceleration!
    The Sweds have a great grass roots racing culture!

    Doing a google search I found this text . . . unfortunately the link wouldn't open

    The qualification runs from kemora 11.5 Driveshaft broke. sorry for the bad audio! ...

    Looks like Kaj placed 7th in the actual race, other info suggests the car is a 21 injection?

    I think I've watched this about 5 times now... I'm just in awe.

    There are other videos which are just as interesting as that one. He has it all over the other cars under brakes and around the bends.

    I'd love to know more about the car.

    Cheers,

    i have little or no memory of driving or being driven in anything like it but the shifting seems out of sync; is it a c-matic?

    the radiator fan wouldn't cut it in normal traffic where the car sits stationary for large periods of time. Probalby works well enough at speed on the track.

    Yep. Kadett Coupe (there's a Holden/Holden Isuzu version here). Always liked them.

    PS. We're talking about the yellow car?

    Looks like control over height correctors, might have something to do with setting the angle of attack at speed or perhaps control over body roll?? Though not something you would want to be messing with at speed

    I would never have believed it, I would have said its impossible from a DS 21 carby. I am very surprised.

    Would be interesting to know what engine changes were done. My guess would be it must be very high compression ratio, valve pockets in the pistons, max diameter cylinders, racing cam and a very light flywheel. Still struggle to see that it would make more than 200hp. But brilliant that someone has done it!

    I could call Curt and have him give me the spec and what's been done if you want to. Curt is often referred to as Mr Citroën in Stockholm. He was part of Citroën Sweden since the fifties and is a truly wonderful person with lots of knowledge and humor.
