Wardrobe?  Do you mean that jeans and race t-shirts are what you want all to wear, and if you don't happen to have such with you -- the Club will provide them?

You certainly don't mean that this is a coat-and-tie affair - do you?  I have one or two ties -- for funerals and weddings only.  NOT for racing banquets, that's for sure.

Haha, its just usual in Sweden that one has to pay to hang jacket up when going into a pub. Just another way to weasel a few more krones out of your pocket. Mind you it does give the advantage of not slugging a heavy winter jacket around, or leaving on chair and getting it stolen, or pockets rifled..

As much as I'd like to attend, Nancy and I won't be at the SpeedWeekend on Ice in 2014.  For those of you that don't know it, each year we've been invited to be the guests of the crazy Swedes.  It's a deal I'd certainly like to make -- but getting away from here during the winter is a challenge.  And this year the GNRS is tossed in the mix - for next week, too - and there just isn't time (nor budget) for an extra jaunt.

Nonetheless, please accept our thanks for the invitation.  One of these years -- you'll see us.  Really.

The race is on ! After a warm spell some of us were getting a bit sweaty that there would be no ice, But King Bore saw to it that a few cold spells kept our ice.
So on Thursday most of the motorheads in Sweden shall be making their mecca to the ice flats of Årsunda. Keep your eyes peeled on Landracing.se Friday 28 Feb for some results.

Check with the people in St. Louis, MO.  USA

They could probably hold the races in their city streets.

Bonneville people understand the situation when the course is not good enough to use.
