Anderstorp circuit located 5 miles east of Gislaved city was designed by Sven Asberg. It was open for races in 1968.
At first it was called Scandinavian Raceway, but then "English" name was changed to "Swedish"
Anderstorp - same as the name of a little nearby town.
Anderstorp track has three relatively long straights:
"start - finish", straight between turns Opel and Hansen, and also so-called Flight Straight.
Straights are connected by hairpins Opel and Startkurvan and also by 90-and-above degree turns (for example
famous Karusell turn reaches 180 degrees). During 1978 races, in attempt to control speed increases on the track,
a chicane was placed on the Norrakurvan turn. However introduction of "Wing-cars" (designed by Colin Chapman)
and "Fan-cars" Brabham BT46B (that has special fan sucking air from underneath the car) during the same
season made chicane construction useless. Nowadays Anderstorp track is used for sports cars competitions.
