OK - I lifted my/this post from Off Topics to get things underway. :)


This was a great day for some 8-9 Swededspeed-ers and their Rs. Here a short movie I hurredly edited.

P.S. Apologise for the movies being so Sharp centric - but my son only had eyes for his father's Flash Green.

Also my R ran thru almost a tank of 101 octane gas duriing the day and computer display showed around 11 mpg.

Awesome Barry! [thumbup] Looks like a great experience for anyone fortunate enough to be able to participate. Loved seeing the R estate on your tale in the last pass. :cool:

Nice film, Barry. My S60R is very jealous of your S60R. Not that I haven't found excuses to drive her like that on the public freeways once or twice. :rolleyes:

So, you brag about your deplorable gas milage, but leave out your top speed for the day? Must we beg?????

Let me know if you'd like to adopt another son. I'm up for grabs. [Just don't tell my parents.] :D

Now that looks like fun. That V70 is more my speed but I would have loved to get on that track and have fun.
