      Very rarely organised. But the entire country is covered in snow 3-4months each year...

      There is a farmer about 30-40minutes from where I live that usually waters his field in the winter.
      When there is a solid enough foundation of ice, and a good amount of snow on top, he plows a track.
      He always has a selections of barely working cars that you can borrow.
      Just about the most fun you can have without undressing

      There is also a couple of organised trackdays on frozen lakes, but it gets very bumpy.
      So you should write of the car after a winter of that. But also insanely fun

          Here's a couple of videos of Rudskogen.

          First one is filmed with a samsung gear 360 (placed too far back, I know)
          From April 9th, my first time ever driving on track.

          The second video is filmed on a mates iPhone (that's why it says Mazda mx5)
          From May 20th, my second time ever driving on track

              Drove one at Nurburgring.

              Swifts are so fun.

              Just curious: Is this one a rental car?

                Howdy!

                Swifts are the modern Mini, in my book. As compared to the HMS Mini (Mini what, Queen Mary?) BMW gives us today.

                  Made a thread on the car, so I wont anger the admins by discussing it in the wrong section

                  Steve: I think it may be closer to the original Golf GTI...
