Tell the Sheriff to PM me his mailing address. I will get some LSR swag to him.  I will also mark my calendar to wear my Speedweekend T-shirt he gave me in honor of the 2013 activity.  Cheers.

If you folks would like live audio coverage of the Swedish Speedweekend on Ice -- all you've got to do is figure out a way to get Nancy and me to Sweden.  Ellwood has offered (once again) to host us and make sure we've got a vehicle and all of that.  It's just the getting to Stockholm that''s a bit of a $$ challenge.

Sure would be fun, and then you could hear racing announcers speaking Swedish.  Skol!

Great - now I have to hunt down an analog FM tuner.   :roll:

The digital I put aside falls in the cracks between frequencies in Europe.

New for this year shall be two long tracks:-
the usual 3.2 km track for the Flying K
and parallell a new 3.8 km track for outright speed records

plus for speedway motorcycle with ice studs - an oval track

and on the outskirts of the ice -  a track for old american cars to cruise around.

Maybe even an Ice Bar

I don't know what that is -- but I don't think I'd try shipping it anywhere.

Hehe Stan, so true.

Actually it is a toffee rocket - a steel tube with a lining of toffee , like what one eats. As soon as its on fire then i can open the throttle , and squirt liquid laughing gas down the tube - this gives a massive amount of oxygen, and a massive burn rate of the sugar in the toffee. All this results in a safe , manageable hybrid rocket. shutting off the NOS shuts down all thrust.

This is a very simple way of going  very fast, like 600 mph, but i darent go that fast on the ice, so will be happy if i reach 120 mph. The sled it rests in is very homemade.
