In memory of Håkan Carla Carlqvist
Together with Uddevallas own multi world champion Håkan Andersson, Uddevalla GP and BMK Uddevalla wish to honor motocross legend Håkan Carla Carlqvist.
Håkan Andersson drove and traveled with Carla for several years, and during the World Cup circus as Andersson calls it, they became good friends and got to know each other well. Andersson was already established driver when Carla was young and competed in the World Cup, they traveled a lot together in Europe.
Andersson remembers Carla as a friendly and sympathetic person, though he was tough on himself, which Andersson believes lead him to his success.
Carla had great humor and appreciated a good laugh, which he showed in Namur, Belgium. Carla had decided beforehand that if he led enough, he would stop and have a beer, as he also did. Watch the movie >>
Motocross is big in Europe, Andersson himself had Belgium as a base during 10 years. A few years ago, he returned to visit his good World Cup friend Joel Robert. It turned out that the address was wrong and Håkan ended up in the middle of the center where a working police caught sight of him. The police immediately left his place and insisted on giving Andersson police transport to the correct address – after he had invited Håkan for a beer.
The Swedish rider was a two-time World Champion, first in 1979 on a Husqvarna 250, then in 1983 while riding the 500 Class for Yamaha. In 1983, Carla was awarden with the medal of Svenska Dagbladet.
“We had such a great time together. Last time we met we were invited as honor guests to the celebration of the World Cup 50th anniversary in Namur.” says Andersson.
Our condolence to Carla’s family and close friends.
