Torsten Palm : biography

July 23, 1947 -

Torsten Palm (born July 23, 1947 in Kristinehamn) is a former racing driver from Sweden.

Palm participated in two Formula One World Championship Grands Prix with a rented Hesketh in 1975, failing to qualify for the first and then running out of fuel two laps before the end of the second - for which he was awarded tenth place. As a result he scored no championship points. He retired shortly afterwards to manage promising countryman Eje Elgh. He did a little rallying in the 90s and now runs a dealership and garage.
