MiniTorqueGoesFinland drives Ahvenisto

It looks like the full MTGF team (JKo, DoubleP, Micke, tcbw, DTR) will be making an appearance at the Mini Club Flying Finns annual trackday/sauna night this year again.

We'll be heading back to Finland's most challenging track - the old non-FIA-approved circuit at Hameenlinna called Ahvenisto - on 14 September. And then, after the trackday, we'll head over to a cottage by the lake for some drinking, sauna, and steak (not in that order, it's more like, driving, shopping, driving, drinking, BBQ, drinking, eating, drinking, sauna, drinking etc.).

We'll try and get some photos and some videos, at least until such time as we fall in the lake. It worked well went we all went out at Knutstorp (although some of that vid still needs to be uploaded/linked to the site).

I made it home late yesterday. Once again had great fun with the MTGF bunch, too bad that it was the last track day of the season. Unfortunately this time I couldn't be on the track as much as I would and some slow laps had to be enough. The good thing is that during those the track was empty :blushing: It was nice to see that this year there were a lot of modern Minis, maybe even more than the classics.

Let's see when the guys get back from the dead as I know there was much lonkero, sauna and talking crap involved after I left :tongue_smilie: Here are some crappy pictures I took with my phone.

It was a good day, even if I went grass cutting twice (each time a lazy half spin) which is a new personal record.

And it was a pretty good night as well, and not so good that I had any issues with the rozzers' breathalyser at around midday Sunday.

That must have been close, Tcbw. Maybe it was lucky that the Lonkaros wasn't emptied after all. I took my time getting back to Sweden, exploring some more of Finland. Very nice. I would like to thank you, Flying Finns for a nice vacation. It's difficult to do something about the weather.

Good to have a representative from New MINI Club Sweden! Maybe there'll be more of you next year?

And thanks for the Lonkero!
