    Default Greetings from norway

    Don't know if i have enough privileges to access this forum or if this part of it is just empty.
    Anyway thought I would contribute with a few pics.
    Track is Rudskogen in Norway
    Car is a 2007 Suzuki Swift Sport

    Very rarely organised. But the entire country is covered in snow 3-4months each year...

    There is a farmer about 30-40minutes from where I live that usually waters his field in the winter.
    When there is a solid enough foundation of ice, and a good amount of snow on top, he plows a track.
    He always has a selections of barely working cars that you can borrow.
    Just about the most fun you can have without undressing

    There is also a couple of organised trackdays on frozen lakes, but it gets very bumpy.
    So you should write of the car after a winter of that. But also insanely fun

    Here's a couple of videos of Rudskogen.

    First one is filmed with a samsung gear 360 (placed too far back, I know)
    From April 9th, my first time ever driving on track.

    The second video is filmed on a mates iPhone (that's why it says Mazda mx5)
    From May 20th, my second time ever driving on track

    Drove one at Nurburgring.

    Swifts are so fun.

    Just curious: Is this one a rental car?

    Howdy!

    Swifts are the modern Mini, in my book. As compared to the HMS Mini (Mini what, Queen Mary?) BMW gives us today.

    Suzuki Swift Sport (not a rental)
    Made a thread on the car, so I wont anger the admins by discussing it in the wrong section

    Steve: I think it may be closer to the original Golf GTI...
