80 cars came to Sweden Offroad Tour Paradise-Karlshamn today Sunday July 12!
That's a new record for civilian offraod areas on SOT! The record on military areas is 90 cars (40 of them from Norway) at SOT Älvdalen many years ago.
Suddenly it happens! as they say in Sweden. After 20 years of struggeling with SOT we suddenly have double as many cars on the tour compared to last year.
We had 60 cars in Hässleholm on Friday, 70 in Hästveda on Saturday, and 80 in Karlshamn today Sunday. That means totally 210 cars over the long weekend!
If ATVs would be allowed the three first areas it would have been even more vehicles!
Swede Tania from Skåne drives her trusty Suzuki SJ together with her dog. She is the first person we have seen offroad driving in a frock! Quite a contast to her muddy 4x4.
Yet another German car joined today, a family with two children, one of them just 8 weeks. You are never to young (or old) to have fun on SOT!
Offroad company Off Road Auto Parts in Ranseröd outside Hässleholm showed some of their parts plus three interesting 4x4 cars; an original Willys-Jeep, an original Volvo "PV-jeep" and a rebuilt Jeep CJ. Off Road Auto Parts has already helped some people on the tour and saved their holiday.
It was yet another almost summer day: 21 degrees Celsius, mostly sunny and slight wind. Perfect for offroading.
The five Dutch cars took part in the afternoon's tourist tour to some "giants pot holes", a geological phenomen from the ice age.
Tomorrow Monday July 13 we are driving SOT Boasjö-Karlskrona, 30 kilometres North North West of Karlskrona. Long nice trails from the top of the hill down to the lake. Excellent local lunch at the tent camp by the lake. Camping allowed.
WELCOME and take part in the historic celebration of Sweden Offroad Tour's 20 year anniversary and help us set a new record for the tour!
