Auto Slalom Training with PCN and The Subaru Impreza Club

Marius and I went auto slaloming last sunday as we’ve been doing several weekends this year, and as usual I shot a collection of photos for my flickr page. And as what has now become a tradition, I’ll post to the blog with my selection of the best shots and the videos we shot. You can see the complete photoshoot over at flickr.

The next image was shot with the camera attached to the back of the car, running at auto shoot with a fresh memory card inside. The camera was locked to the “GO GO GO!” mode with an external switch, and I triggered the first image as I got into the car. The effect was quite good, looking forward to doing a few more shots this way with more interesting exposure times.

The final shot shows the camera setup for the outboard video, which can be seen in the first video clip below. The position is quite shaky as the camera is attached to the very front of the car, but it’s a dramatic angle. I’ll see if we can do something about those vibrations for later.

The best run of the day:

A few mishaps which we caught on tape:

This is probably the last run of the season, so I guess I’ll be back with more auto slalom and racing related posts as soon as the ice and snow disappears in april. Looking forward to it already!

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.
