Hi,,

So things are moving on way to slow over here, have some parts on the way to the build wich is a good thing. I feel that if i´m gonna make it i will have to start pulling some strings pretty fast since it´s alot to think about just to build the car.

If you feel that you or somebody you know can help in some way, or maybe want to be a part of my adventure and help me out at the race please send me a PM,,

Regards from the Sweed

Got a company that is working on the transportation, the plan is to ship it to the US. My mind needs to be focused on building the car and getting in shape,, anything that i can get help with is a bonus.

First of all i want to apologize for the lack of updates on my BAJA project, but there is a reason for that.

I had to take a medical leave of absence from work due to several reasons. Many things in my life just started to fall apart and as a result i hit the wall, hard. I didn´t even touch My BAJA project for over 2 months, and my training went down that same path.

I am sorry to tell you guys that there is no way that i will have the car ready to race at this years BAJA 1000, i´m recovering and aiming for 2014 instead.
It was real hard to accept the fact that i would not make it to this years race, i felt defeated.
Now with some perspective on things, the benefits of a start in 2014 are popping up one after the other. My goal with this project was to build the car myself and race it solo, a start in 2014 will allow me to do that.

I´m back in the saddle, and the Honda in the garage will finally get some love again.

Thanks for your support

Linus.

Remember, you haven't got anything if you don't have your health.

Took me many years to race the thou...

Are you thinking of making your vehicle a single seater?

Any thoughts re: loop vs point to point

Next year will be the true 1000 anyway, point to point ending in Cabo. Might be easier on the car also as the course won't be looping on so many areas that are raced multiple times a year.
Get healthy and good luck in 2014.

Hope you feel better Linus!!! I had a health scare a couple years ago (nearly died from a lung infection) and thanks to the guys at RPM Offroad I was able to live a dream and race in the Baja 1000 last year!!! Don't give up hope it can still happen!!!
