Auto Slalom With The Norwegian Porsche Club

Today was the second round in the auto slalom championship of the norwegian porsche club. Marius and I went as usual, and as this session took place just a four minute drive from home, we were on our home turf. My part of the deal was as usual to take pictures while he did all the driving (and well, he didn’t defend his 7th place from last time, but he’ll bounce back for the fourth round!). Here are a few of the best shots from the day, the rest of them are available on my flickr page.

Trackday at Rudskogen with Von Braun Sports Cars

I went for a visit when the guys from the Track, Sea & Party gathered at Rudskogen Motor Speedway today, an event held by Von Braun Sports Cars. As usual when I attend a track event it rained, so the photos are a bit dark. Marius drove the GT2, so I tagged along with him. When we were leaving for Fredrikstad, he complained that the GT2 didn’t notice that he removed the key any more. A bit of checking on the intarwebs when we got home revealed that this was a common problem, and after a bit of checking around, the incredible guys over at Autozentrum in Oslo got him the part, late at friday’s night, the evening before the national day. That’s simply an awesome customer service, so if you ask where you’re going to buy your next Porsche, you know who you should call (give the guys at Autotuning Råde a call too, tho).

Anyways, here are a few selected shots from today. Get all the shots of the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, the LP640, the Porsches and the Ferraris at my flickr page.

The Details of Liberty City

As a small break from all the programming related posts, I present you with an amazing photo set at flickr showing real life New York-locations compared to those available in Grand Theft Auto 4. The level of details that the people doing the 3D models for GTA4 has managed to get into the game is simply remarkable. [via Boing Boing]
