emil-ohman-eng-utanLast weekend it was premiere for the new Lynx racing sled. It´s stronger, has better handling, new rear suspension, and improved track. Today we got the official press release and by that we have seen the new racing sleds from all brands.

Lynx continues to invest in three good drivers. Representing Sweden it will be Emil Öhman who had great expectations to live up to last season when he did his first season at home turf for years. Unfortunately he was stopped by an accident early on the season. The two time Snocross World Champion Emil Öhman did however manage to bring home two heavy silver medals from Arctic Cat Cup and Snocross World Championship. This summer he has also competed successfully in European Championship in Rallycross, where he ended up on a total fifth place. That in the highest division and his first year.

Lynx also supports two more drivers and thats last seasons grand sensation Elias Ishoel from Norway and Aki Pihlaja from Finland.

Peter is also back driving Lynx Snowmobiles.

– I´m certain that Peter still has a lot of speed in his body. And with this seasons racemachine from Lynx he will compete well in Pro Open, even though maybe not all the way to the top, says team manager and  chief mechanic Robert Granberg.

But as we mentioned earlier, Peter is far from alone in Team E-son Maskin. Here is a presentation of the whole team.
