German couple Thomas and Sarah Mueller from Hamburg in Germany showed up at Sweden Offroad Tour Motocross track-Dals-Ed Saturday July 19. They drove a Mitsubishi L300 4WD 1994, a 4x4 mini van where they built their own camper interior. They chose Dals-Ed because of the easy motocross track. But maybe they show up in Norway tomorrow.
They are training for their dream travel with their Mitsubishi: from Germany through for example Russia and Mongolia and end up in Thailand!
Anders Fredriksson from nearby Hedekas is selling ATVs and UTVs at his company motor4u. He drove himself a new CF Moto 800, and his sons Erik, 11 years, a ATV 150 cc and Martin, 7 years, a ATV 90 cc. And Anders also lent out an UTV to Anders Torstensson fron our partner club NEOR. All ages have fun at SOT. We promote children to start motor vehicles early and get the skill from the beginning. They will be better and safer drivers for all their life!
Elin Johansson from Dals-Ed drives her own Jeep Wrangler 1987. We had some ladies with their own 4x4s. On one SOT in the south of Sweden they were four ladies, somthing of a record. Women drive cars better than men, onroad and offroad!
It was a great day in Dals-Ed. Yet again sunshine and a lake 100 meters away to swim in. People come from Trondhemi i north Norway to Lund in southern Sweden, 1000 kilometres apart!
Tomorrow Saturday July 20 is the last and most exciting SOT day on the tour 2014. We drive at Rudskogen Motorsenter, by road 22, south of Rakkestad in south east Norway! Sweden Offroad Tour ends outside Sweden!
Due to respect for church services in Norway we have registration and payment at 11 am to 1pm (two hours). There will also be a small and simple technical control: brakes, etcetera. No worries. We start at 1 pm with drivers meeting and lottery, and then it is six hours of offrroad driving until 7 pm.
The offroad area is comletely NEW for everybody. A sensation in Norway where it is hard to find legal terrain to drive in. Last chance to join Sweden Offroad Tour 4-20.7 2014! WELCOME!
