Racing was a steel roller coaster located at Bakken in Klampenborg, Sjælland, Denmark. The ride was a Flitzer model manufactured by Zierer. It was one of the last three Flitzers in the world to operate at a fixed amusement park, one being Barracuda at Jolly Roger Amusement Park in the United States and the other Speed Track at Rand Show in Johannesburg, South Africa. It closed on 13 September 2020.[1]
