Sweden Offroad Tour 5.7 Sågbacken-Hästveda offered yet another fantastic SOT-day where everything was perfect: the terrain, the weather, the food!
50 4x4 cars showed up (ATV not allowed on the area) and we are now vehicles from six nations: Sweden, Denmark, Norway, England, Holland and Germany.
There were half a dozen women driving, half of them in their own car.
The offroad area doubled its size last year and now its even bigger. Hästveda is now a large and varied terrain heaven. Half of it is free driving, the other half is trails. Lots of mud too due to earlier rain.
The fine Swedish summer weather continues: +26 degrees Celsius again, lovely sun but a bit of cooling wind. Perfect for offroad driving. Many participants took a cool swim in Lursjön (Lake Lur) with the clearest water in the county of Skåne.
Our partner Hästveda FolkRace Club served as usual a delicious lunch: gulasch soup with creme fraiche and cheese sandwiches. HFRC has also excellent mechainal service and "the crazy danes" had the rear diff on their Jeep CJ welded twice.
Tomorrow Sunday is SOT Vånga-Kristianstad, 25 kilometres north east of Kristianstad, at the top of Ivösjön (Lake Ivö). Completely different terrain: a huge gravel pit, with smooth sand like cotton and not a stub och stone in sight. The 4x4 adventure contiues!
