Looks Who's Back!
When I got news today that my very good friend Ralf Christensson was running in this years 2010 La Carrera Panamericana it really put a huge smile on my face. Having not only raced with Ralf but in fact having competed against him in the very competitive Hictoric C class not only did we get to know each other but have enjoyed a life long friendship ever since. You can bet that even though I enjoy and route for all classes that I will most certainly be cheering for Ralf.
Ralf Christensson will be driving the yellow Volvo owned and supported by Mats Hammarlund in the 2010 La Carrera Panamericana and what a perfect matchup this will be. Not only are they good driver and support team but their both from the same country and know how to drink, drive AND party!!!
Ralf is an excellent driver with many years experience from the Panamericana and European rally racing. 2006 was his best year in LCP with a 1st place in Historic C with his Ford Falcon. This year he will have a chance to challenge for the overall title in our Turismo Major Volvo. The Volvo has been updated from last year with new front suspension, bigger brakes and lighter weight.
