I don't know who I respect more, the drivers or the people with the kahunas to stand on the side of the road when they drive by?

Top Gear and WRC, even more awesome together. I'll try to get some sort of videos but I'm sure it will look lame with me putting around trying to learn how to drive my car.

Somewhere there are old film videos of me racing on an ice track on a frozen river with no special traction aids allowed above winter tires. It can't be any funnier than that and I was once of the more competitive racers.

I need to look into those. I bet someone back home converted a few of them to digital.

Murph. I remember watching some guys ice racing like that when I was a kid and wondering why you would want to 'race' that slow.

I don't know who you were watching but we sure didn't go slow.
The straight stretch went up the middle of the river for about 2 km or so I'm guessing. More than enough time to build up as much speed as you wanted. Then quickly realized you 'didn't want it' on the turn at the end.

We had enough room that even the snakey parts were big. Also, the river was almost never a shiny, slippery surface. Rarely could you skate on it for instance. It was more likely covered in a light layer of snow after the track was roughly snowblown by a small team of farmers with big blowers on thier tractors. The snow kept the ice soft underneath and was probably a lot more grippy than you might be picturing but yet still pretty crazy at speed.

I don't know what you saw, but I'm guessing our version wasn't anything like it. Hmm....I wonder if I could convince anyone to start it up again.......

This was on the big pond behind Fanshaw dam in London so there were not any 2 K strait stretches to be found.

Well the Autocross event was a lot of fun. My times sucked but at least I improved each run. I need to do something with the raw video my wife tried to take. I have to thank her for trying but it's pretty much mostly shaky cam. Here are some pics one of my friends took.

Looks like it was fun Ben! Did you beat the Bug or was it all tricked out?

Alas my buddy in his ancient, slow, Beetle beat me but he's been doing RallyCross (dirt) this year while this was my first race of any kind plus I've only had this car a month, so...

I'm confident I'll continue to improve. The first couple runs were intimidating but I improved every run I made. It's amazing how much faster it feels in the car than viewing it from the outside. Out of all the cars there the best time was something like 55 seconds while my best time was 73s (My buddy did 71s in his Beetle).
