Over 60 cars on Friday at SOT Hovdala-Hässleholm and today Saturday 70 cars at SOT Sågbacken-Hästveda (ATVs not allowed on these areas)!
Something has happend at 20th Sweden Offroad Tour July 10-27 2015. We have 50-100 percent more cars than last year!
For many years SOT has attracted around 400 cars and ATVs, but we have been hoping for more because SOT deserves it and there is half a billion people in Europe. And now it seems to happen. We hope for totally 200 cars over the long weekend! People seem to want to take part in the 20 year anniversary!
Three cars from Austria have arrrived, one of them taking part before. So now we are pople from hafl a dozen countries after two days: Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Holland and Austria. Almost half of today's cars were foreign!
German Simone Pahlkötter is planning to take part in SOT All the way -All the days with her trusty Suzuki SJ. But also Swedish Richard Wandstadius from Hässleholm want to do the same in hos Jeep Wrangler 2004.
Dane Michael Bröndt is on the tour once again, now in a newer Jeep Cherokee. Michael has a professionel SOTmovie on youtube.com that has so far attracted over 45000 views. Best promotion we can get. Check i out on Films.
Swede Fredrik Närenbäck is on the tour once more. Now in a new shiny black Jeep Wrangler with only 3800 kilometres on it!
Our partner Hästveda Folkrace Club served tasty gulash soup with créme fraiche and Swedish hard bread with cheese on it. They also had good service for people who had mechaical problems.
Although a new record at SOT Sågbacken-Hästveda the best thing was the weather: 21 degrees Celsius, mostly sunshine and no wind. It almost felt like summer and some participants were only in their shorts!
Tour leader Peter Öjerskog has new Cooper Discoverer STT tires on his Jeep Grand Cherokee 1995. The aggressive tires have a fantastic grip in the mud!
Tomorrow Sunday July 12 10 AM we drive SOT Paradise-Karlshamn, Sweden's finest private offroad area: a forrest hill with leaf trees and granite slopes and a myriad of trails. Because no one hase been allowed to drive there in two years we ara counting on EVEN MORE CARS in Karlshamn!
Come join the historic celebrating of 20 years with Sweden's greatest 4x4 adventure!
Remember: no food or camping at Paradise - but the best civilian offroading!
