Ramshackle racing is a dragracing team from Ebeltoft, Denmark. Sune Larsen is the owner of the team and drives the car. Sune built the car with the help of good friends. Drag Racing is for this team a hobby, or perhaps more a way of life. Nobody is paid.
In Denmark we have very few opportunities to Drag Race. In 2014 there are only 2 races. The track is a normal road that is preped for the occasion. Ramshackle Racing will of course participate in these two races. But the team has decided that this year to go abroad. We will attend races in Sweden, Norway, Germany and possibly the Netherlands.
Sune has been racing for many years. It started 16 years ago. In his first car, after acquiring his driver licence. The car was a ’72 Camaro. Sune started with illegal street racing for some years. But street racing was not organized as one can experience today. It was more for fun and to try how fast the cars could go.
After a few years Sune traded the ’72 Camaro for a ’68 Camaro. The ’68 went thru many different engines, and it evolved from a normal street car to a street strip car with full roll cage, race suspension, and a 800hp 540 cui bbc.
