Raoul Rågvall was one of the best, if not the very best, drivers in Sweden during the 60's. He was also one of the best chassis-builders at the time. Raoul originates from Halmstad on the Westcoast and raced for SSRT, South Swedish Racing Team. In 1968 he won all 6 classes he entered in the Swedish Championship.
After he quit his career in the early 70's, he went on to become a top competitor with RC model aircrafts.

Raoul has been very kind to donate some of his material to Slotracing.se.
Thank You!

Leif Henrysson from Falkenberg was the first Swedish commercial producer of vacuum formed bodies. Unfortunately the plastic material wasn't the best, so those bodies are extremely rare.

Back to list of stuff from the past.
