Martin, president of the Swiss club (what on earth?)

Post by felixkk »

Martin Rudolf, honorable president of the Swiss club. Saw this on Facebook. Don't know what he was up to, who he was with (shady looking types), what car he was driving, who was chasing him (he looks pretty nonchalant). Knowing him, I think he was in control, then again I'm not sure. Looks like fun though.

He will of course claim that everything was under control- but I have my doubts. But then again, his expression is relatively calm and I've seen him take corners (almost) like this on dry roads in his interceptor.

Given the speeding fines in CH, I assume this how to have fun in Switzerland.

Yes- those fines can be bitter. And it's not just for speeding either. Don't get me started. Grrr.

Sounds like fun, but is it not too late to register? Are you taking the FF, or would that be an unfair advantage?

No 4WD allowed, we have a Kadett B.

It is still possible to register, 5 weeks to go.

Well, of course everything was under control. This is how I use to drive in wintertime on snowy roads, having a proper RWD car with a LSD, manual gear and 3 passengers. Works perfect.
There was not a real event on that, just a couple of classic car owners who want to have fun in the snow and behave like toddlers...

Regards
Martin

LSD. Limited-slip differential not Lysergic acid diethylamide I'm guessing. You're more the beer person I would have thought. Looks like the four of you just robbed a bank.
