New year, new possibilities!
If you haven’t started to get your land speed car or motorcycle ready for the August-September racing season, you are running late!

I asked a Swedish racing buddy why he doesn't go to the Speed Weekend on Ice, and he summarized it as "crazy dangerous vehicles and too much booze".
I am not sure what he is talking about, what's wrong by using a saw disk as rear wheel, or a jet driven scooter, or 1 inch long studs, or a bunch of drunk guys swimming in icy water while playing with a chain saw...? ;-)

---- Freezing my behind off.... ----
After 9 years in Colorado, I am not used to the cold anymore. I used to think this was completely normal, but today I thought I was going to freeze my behind off (or at least my fingers and toes). I was worried about my 84 year old dad, but I was the one being painfully cold.

Crappy photo, boring job: helping my brother Tomas to change a wheel bearing on his Saab 9-3 Aero.... bleh! 😕
--- Speed Weekend on ice - here we come! ---
Arrived yesterday afternoon in Sweden to attend Speed Weekend ice (Landracing.se) Friday-Saturday as a spectator together with my parents Lena and Sven Håkansson.
I thought I would have a relaxing evening after almost 24 hours on the road, but I was immediately put to work. My parents second car needed new tires so my brother Tomas (pictured) could borrow it while his car gets new wheel bearings. But I guess it wasn't more than fair to lend a hand, Tomas picked me up at the airport after all (and had to wait for an hour for my delayed flight...).
P.S. I hate to work on cars in the winter, they are so insanely dirty.... and so were we when we were done! ... See more
