Mantorp Park raceway was built in 1969, with finance from BP Sweden as a permanent road course and a drag strip. It is located near the town of Mantorp in Mjölby Municipality. Mantorp Park is capable of 4 different layouts, but today only the short (1.950 km/1.212 mile) and long (3.125 km/1.942 mile) tracks are used. Mantorp Park was the first European drag racing circuit to adopt the new 301 metres (990 ft) drag strip format adopted by the NHRA in July 2008.
The European Formula Two Championship visited from 1971 until 1973, and again in 1981 and 1982. Today it mainly hosts club events, dragracing, a driving school and rounds of the Swedish Formula Three Championship and the Swedish Touring Car Championship. At Mantorp Park every year a large number of motor-related events and activities are held, such as STCC, Bug Run, VEIDEC Festival, Action Meet, Trucking Festival and more.
The everyday business consists mainly of various forms of driver training / track experience in the Safety Driving and Racing School. Other weekends are often booked early by a large number of clubs, associations, teams and companies that organize their own activities on the track. The season begins in early March and lasts until approximately mid-November.
