Picko Troberg 1938-2016
Picko Troberg, one of the biggest names in Swedish motor racing, died last week at the age of 78 after suffering with cancer.
Troberg was a successful racer in the 1960s and competed extensively at home and across Europe with a Formula Junior Lola MK5A.
He switched to running F3 and touring car teams and managed the career of 1998 British Touring Car champion Rickard Rydell. He later raced a Ford Falcon in historics and was the driving force behind recent historic festivals at Knutstorp, Karlskoga and Anderstorp.
UK commentator Ian Titchmarsh, a friend for 50 years, said: “He was a larger than life and very entertaining character who for many years could truly be regarded as Mr Motor Racing in Sweden.”
