Wow.  Anders made the poster.  Cool beans.

I think Nancy's already got that weekend reserved -- for her and four other girls to go on a weekend extravaganza a couple of hundred miles from home.  Attention guys in the Appleton area:  Mark the dates on your calendars -- five hotties from the UP will be on the prowl.

And Slim'll be at home, tending to the fire and the cats, and wondering why he didn't get the plane tickets to Sweden BEFORE Nancy made her plans.  Best wishes for a safe and fun event. cheers

Our ice is looking very good, and only one month left to the event.

I have decided to give my rocket sled another shot - it blew up a couple of years ago, and has been mothballed. Lets hope it makes it to the finish line

Rocket sled you say? Blew up you say? ROFL - Tech must be a hoot!   grin

Have fun and for goodness sake try not to hurt yourself!

Svarthålet Racing is upping the pace with their new valved pulsejet sled, 2000N of thrust and their goal is 200km/h. They ran 184km/h with 1600-1700N thrust last year so it should be doable.

Nice video, Anders.  cheers That looks like fun- racing on ice. I guess that's the way Vikings do it; we race on salt- not as cold but still fun.

The crew at landracing.se have really outdone themselves this year, the weather gods have been kind as well so the track conditions couldn´t possibly be better.

You need to understand what kind of commitment it takes to hold an event like this, the arrangers have been preparing the lake constantly since it froze some time around christmas to make it this good. It it easy to think that you only push the snow away a couple of days before the race but the ice needs lots of experienced work to become this solid and flat without developing cracks and potholes.

Race starts in a couple of hours, wish us all here on the lake the best of luck and that no one gets hurt.

Cheers!
