Default Gatebil on Tour, Kristiansand 18.08.2007

here are my pics of the meet last weekend. what a top day out

if anyone else has any, or any links, please post up

just arriving, and already it's looking good

plenty of cossies around on the way in, so looks like it will be a good day for ford fans

just as we get trackside, the mental cossie powered black mk2 escort comes out and hoons about until a tyre pops

the 'police' were there to make sure everyone enjoyed the day

the best looking car of the day for me

random show area pics

hideous tacky mercedes

leif's escort

it drew a crowd - were they looking at the car or the girlfriend?

some of the lovely ladies

nova with turbo and cossie intercooler

mental audi - spot the side exit pipe

the gatebil taxi - don't think routing the side exit pipe down the sill has worked terribly well

awesome modified m3 that was minty mint didn't see it get used in anger though

let's watch a bit of the buggering about going on out on the 'track'

i find the norwegians such polite and friendly hosts

the black mk2 conked out - typical ford. reckon it might just have been his fuel pump inertia switch cutout mid drift

let the hooning continue

chevy v8 powered 3 door with solid axle

some for the passionbmw folk

an englander marking his territory - taking something back after the vikings came over here and took it off us

our vantage point for a bit

trick motor with big rear tyres and coilovers showing the jap boys how it's done

plenty of 200SX's setup for drifting

whoops, caught in the act

in the afternoon they opened up a loop and let loads of cars on at once and they just went absolutely ape shit why can't british track days be like this? no black flags in sight and some outrageous tyre shredding action

that corner started off being clean tarmac

car of the day for me - not hugely powerful, but very entertaining. drifting everywhere, including the very narrow straight section

a short vid to show his skill

nice cossie bonnet

an example of the tyre damage that these nutters were doing - they must all have shares in goodyear

random car park shots

any beetle fans on here? this had had some work on it

this is how to modify an old volvo

from our vantage point on the top of the rocks, we could watch the girls go pee

mint 3 door underbonnet shots. unlike the bmw earlier, this did get used HARD

the drift works 200SX was not as mint as it looked from a distance

with the sun starting to drop, and our lungs and eyes full of tyre smoke, we headed off after a superb show. roll on next year's summer rudskogen meet, and maybe a visit to the Gatebil on Ice next year
