Svensk Bilsport, the association for Swedish motorsports, is ready to take the next step into the future by developing an app for the entire bidding and purchase process for vehicles in the sport of folk racing. An invitation to tender has been out to several tech companies for some time, and the board of Svensk Bilsport has now chosen HiQ to perform the work.
“We are delighted that Svensk Bilsport has chosen to expand their collaboration with HiQ! We are incredibly strong in app development, and we have noticed a growing demand for our expertise in this field. This transition is not limited to ourselves; it is becoming increasingly important in the digital world we live in. We are looking forward to continuing our excellent collaboration with Svensk Bilsport and to this specific assignment as well,” says Fredrik Malm, acting CEO of HiQ.

Race organisers and drivers within Svensk Bilsport have long demanded a digital solution to simplify the association’s work, especially since cash is becoming increasingly uncommon in Swedish society. As a result, Svensk Bilsport is now taking the next step by developing and building an app for implementing the entire bidding and purchasing process for vehicles in the sport of folk racing, and now choose HiQ as their partner to take on the assignment.
“This is yet another step in our digital development, which began with the license app built by HiQ. We feel excited in that we can now continue to develop our own capital in the form of digital solutions for bidding. This is where we are at the moment. Furthermore, we will explore other digital functions that can be added in future to simplify matters for participants in folk racing. However, there will certainly be synergy effects that can benefit other sports as well,” says Anna Nordkvist, general secretary of Svensk Bilsport.
The work should be completed by the beginning of the 2023 season when the rules of folk racing will be adapted to permit digital bidding. The bidding process is the first component of the application that will now be built.
