October is usually the month we release the date for the 2015 event.
Probably February, so lets wait anxiously, and see soon.

I looked into it -- and the airlines want about $1100/each for tickets so Nancy and I could fly to Stockholm for your event.  Add in the extra charges for my leathers/boots/helmet* -- and the price becomes pretty danged high.  Maybe if we win the lottery tonight, though. . . rolleyes

Well Slim, If you make the trip you will see a familiar bike, The "Bonneville Bee", now on it's way to Sweden as I type! Maybe Jonas will let you make a pass. Best of luck to all the Ice Racers, they truly have balls of steel [cold]!

Tom:  As you know, I'm kinda familiar with the Bee bike, having had Mike Rich twist wrenches for us a time or two.  And I've seen you and it on the salt a bunch of times.  As for, however, me taking a run down the ice on it -- I'll have to think that one out very carefully.  I mean -- any bike which rider gives away spicy pepperoni and pickles and whatever you give out -- may have damaged the air intake tract with fumes other than gasoline - if you know what I mean.  I know the bike has run in a gas class, but I thought that meant - - evil

Elwood, I think that I should talk to it's new owner before I let his new cat out of the bag! If he says OK, I will be happy to.

OK, it is a '73 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport that has been run on the salt in different 750 pushrod classes for the last 11 years, currently holds 4 records, just cranked out a 156.266 pass at the WOS! I hear that it will be there sometime in January, the new owner has already ordered spiked tires!

This is the start list so far - one week later.
Pawels Hayabusa turbo is probably the fastest machine, unless Örjans Kawa 1400 can wup it.

I'm waiting for the airfare to go down.  I've checked a few times -- and it's above $900 - quite a bit above, dang it.  There's a new cheap airline -- Norwegian Air -- but they fly out of only a few cities, and Chicago isn't one of them.  By the time I get to NY or wherever else they serve -- we're back to $1300 or so.

I'd sure like to visit to give the landracing.com folks my first hand impression, but until the cost is less -- I'll have to stay at home and do with whatever reports you send our way.

But wouldn't it be cool to have live streaming audio from Sweden?>> cheers grin grin cheers grin
