TTA today announced a new track for the 2012 calendar in the form of Tierp Stockholm Arena, an arena that so far only has hosted drag racing.
“We are incredibly proud and happy to introduce racing at Tierp Stockholm Arena along with TTA. We can at last through the cooperation with TTA reach a wider target group within the motorsport,” said Lars Erik Lindberg, Tierp Stockholm Arena.
A two kilometer circuit is currently being constructed at the track, using part of the drag racing strip.
“The track layout uses the potential of the arena to the max. We will get a long and fast straight combined with challenging corners, all within the viewing area of the spectators,” said Lindberg.
The track was launched in May of 2011 and has been valued to close to 25 million euro. The track replaces the seventh TTA race in the 2012 calendar that originally was planned to be held at Mantorp Park. TTA states that negotiations are continuing with Mantorp Park for a potential ninth race of 2012 on a new date.
Tierp Stockholm Arena is located 120 kilometers north of Stockholm.
