The third European competitor is Swedens Per Bengtsson, four time European Super Twin Bike Champion and current speed record holder (223,70 mph) on his famous parallel twin the Beast. Per and the Beast Drag Bike team was no 3 qualifayer during last years Haltech World Finals at Valdosta Dragway in Georgia and is very much looking forward to come back and meet the best in the business.

All three raceteams will ship the equipment and bikes together in a container that will be send from Bengtssons headquarter Flexoart in Sweden in a couple of weeks and to reach Bradenton Motorsports Park at the end of October.
