Posted in Allmänt/ General, Dagens bild/ Picture of the day, Old Speed, Racing, Resor/Trips, Träffar/Meetings on augusti 25, 2014 by 50split


Now we are at the best part of the SCC, the Flügplatz Schmutz Rennen. This year the team behind the renn, made a night course at friday night, and the day course at saturday.

The night stage we gathered at 9PM and went in two groups in five and  five. We had a transportstage in ca 15km, then we were at the starting-point of the SS. we sould find 12 reflexes during the the ca 10km long track. Then we just did a 180 degrees turn, and went the same road out again. This was a really fun stage, and during the stage me and Henke really appreciated the 3 marchal in the front of the OT 60 and the map reader-light, and the really  useful hand searchlight. The light saved us many times!! Fun stage, that we were able to let flat out in some gears, but it was risky, due to we passed some small bridges wo railing, so, if you didnt pass at the center you did risk to run down in the lake….

Any how, on the reflexes there were 9 letters, that would make a word. We got some leads about the word.

Henke was a super perfect co driver, often with head up  literally….. Head through the car, searching for reflexes! Grate time!!!

The saturday was a non flat out, ideal-time, run, with a limit to not be able to go faster than xxx sec.

I think thats booring, but, thats their thing, and I know the Norwegian racing organization is not to happy about these kind of races, thats why we are not able/allowed to run flat out….

We had a fun time, and Henke run the first run at SS2, and I run the second run. Much fun. All cars run a pre run to get to know the track. During this pre run I was out and took some photos. NICE!

NOW, the pictures!

Wiking Auto Rennen 2014

Posted in Dagens bild/ Picture of the day, Old Speed, Racing, Resor/Trips, Swittern, Träffar/Meetings on augusti 8, 2014 by 50split

The day was Thursday, 31/7 2014. This is a day to put in the history-books. The day when the first Swedish made oldspeed rally were held. The start was in Rättvik, with 5 SS, and lunch-brake in Ljusdal about 160 KM north – east of Rättvik. The rally was about finding your own ideal time. Set from Rättvik to Ljusdal.  First SS was in Dalhalla aprox 10 km from the start. It was a little trickey to go there, due to the fact that the maps said one thing, and the signs said another…. anyhow…. At SS1 our friends J-son and Leif sat and wrote the arrival-time on our paper.

Off towards the woods of Edsbyn, were our oldspeed friend with the nice Judson equipped Oval were sitting, waiting in the woods at SS2. The SS2 was a gravel road ca 30km long, with opportunity to run fast and for a long time on soft gravel. then on to asphalt and into bigger gravel roads towards Ljusdal. The SS3, were first a Lunch-brake, were wife Helsing made a classic Swedish dish. Pytt  i panna, made  from local meet and vegetables, and really yummy!! Then after lunch and coffee we run a sprint, two laps on the horce-track of Ljusdal. This was a really popular and appreciated rally-sprint. Then we all cruised through Ljusdal and out to the starting-point for the way home. We skipped the SS4, due to lack of time, and the SS5 were skipped due to safety reasons. The plans were that we would race another horse track, true the woods, at small roads, but, we intruded to much on the horse-roads, and we do not want to crash into a horse in 80km/h!

There are a big village cruise in Rättvik, the Thursday and due to they had been (during the same day) moving the cruise one hour before, and, therefore  we could not have the goal as planed, so, the place of the start of SS5 then became the goal.

Some things we could not do any thing about, but, all were happy with tha day, and the one thing all talked about was the sprint.

The winner of the sprint was Fez, with a lend car, a souer und sohn tuned (new oldspeed) zwitter, that has been in some hillraces back in the 60´s.  The over all winner was Bengt Holmen, that run with least time during the day´s racing.


Big up to all coming, both they who helped arrange and the ones that were rallying all day. Thank you all!!


Now, some pictures.

Rättviksveckan 2014 part 1

Posted in Old Speed, Racing, Resor/Trips, Swittern, tävlingar, Träffar/Meetings on augusti 5, 2014 by 50split

Now it´s time for the first update from Classic Car Week (V31).
This will be pictures from preparing of the Wiking Auto Rennen, and the Hill-race  in Rättvik.

I decided that Patrik, who turned 50 this year, would run my OT 60 to the Wiking Auto Rennen.

I went down to Patrik friday night, then we changed the oil in both cars, and checked the carb on the OT 60. The saturday we left Örnsköldsvik and heading ti Ljusdal, and Helsing. the weather was warm, 32-33 degrees in the day!!! Not god for the drivers, and not god for the cars. The condenser stopped work at E4 so we needed an extra stop to fix that. In sundsvall my fan-belt exploded, but a quick swap and we was on the road again. The evening at helsing we had a good dinner, and I got some beer, then we headed to check the track and print some maps.

Sunday morning we went to print some more maps and then we went (with our new maps) on the roads we newer driven before in our nice swedish nature. Many many kilometers of only gravel roads, small asphalt roads in between.

When we got to Rättvik we met up with Paul and Fez. It was time for the ”MoT” before the hillclimb.  Rättvik was out of power, so we went to Mora for a late dinner.

On the monday we went to the hill race, and a day of hill gravel racing.

Lots of fun, and lots of nice rally cars to check out!

Fez and Paul straggled with the gravel, due to in the UK they are not having any gravel roads. I have run gravel-roads since ever, so I was not afraid to skid each corner. It was a big fun, and I liked to run the hill. When the final car was done it showed I had only 0.12 seconds between my 2 runs, and I got the third place in the car class. That was not expected, due to I have never been on a hill-race before.



Now, the pictures!
