    Default Lost 'n Frost Finland 22-24.2.2008

    So is there anyone interested to take part to a 24h GPS competition here in Finland in february (last year it was -25 celsius at worst time)??

    Competition is basicly same kind as Lapland Trophy, except this is driven in many small areas around South Finland, about 1h drive from port of Helsinki to the competitions start point.

    If you are interested, contact me here on the board or straigt to organizer:

    ken.nyman@bilia.fi (he also understands swedish)


    Few pictures from last year:













    :p That's me pulling up a winch rope in one icy uphill:

    Could you tell me about other competitions in Finland next year? I competed this year in Lapland Trophy and wants another competition since the lapland trophy isnt going to be in competition form next year.

    And the Lost `n frost is to far away, especially for winter driving... And I have to drive my rig not only in the competition but also to and from...

    Nice pix!!! Looks funny!!! :)
    used to have a runner...

    C'mon....anyone from Norway coming?? There was already one from Sweden and couple of cars from Estonia.......so isn't there any crazy Norwegian offroaders willing to drive in this competition.

    Hey you can drive as much as you want in over 20 hours!!!! And it sure is fun and challenging!!!
