Nearly 40 cars took part in Sweden Offroad Tour Ekeby-Stockholm today Tuesday July 21, ATV/UTV not allowed.. That is 50 % more than last year, and we will set a new record this year!
Malin and her boyfriend took part in offroading for the first time with their Jeep Wrangler. Malin had never driven offroad or a Jeep before. But in the afternoon shw was driving up and down the scary tricky slick rock mountain. Brave! Impressive!
Motor journalist Christian Ellmark, 4WD specialist for Sweden's largest motor magazine Vi Bilägare (We Car Owners), drove a new face lifted Mitsubishi Pajero and needed som good offroad action photos. Tour leader Peter Öjerskog was more than willing to drive the brand new car in the watery and muddy ditches and in the gravel slopes, Christian taking good action photos.
For the first time a participant brought a drone with a camera and took photos/film of the SOT-meeting from a birdseye view! Tour leader Peter Öjerskog looked at the screen on the ground and could see his Jeep Grand Cherokee and himself from far above. We hope to publish some of the drone-photos after the tour: First time birdseye photos will be published on Swedish offroading.
We gave away Vision handerchiefs from our sponsor Rindab and the land owner gave us copies of Swedish 4 Wheel Drive magazine to give away.
A little sun today and no rain, almost like summer!
Tomorrow Wednesday July 22 10 AM we drive on our new offroad area on 20 years anninversary tour: SOT Rörken-Uppsala, northeast of Uppsala, north of Stockholm and near E4. A completely new and exciting offroad area for SOT. Driving time is expanded to 8 PM, 50 % more driving time.
