Journey to the true Carfreaks appearance
Alastaro 25th of July; Yet again the true freaks have gathered together to show their respect to the motor-racing. Semi-slicks changed, pressures checked and full tank of V-Power under, sounds like our convoy is once again ready to start it´s 150km b-route journey to Alastaro. The 3km long track has become the real home for the true Carfreaks appearance. It´s safety and lack of near by settlements are ideal for having some petrol head´s fun.
First stage of the trip starts from petrol-station in Nihtisilta, Espoo where we meet all willing to enjoy the company of each others. This time was not exception and soon we had a nice party of two BMW´s M6´s, M5, M3, Porsche Cayman, Porsche 911, Audi S4 and my Nissan GT-R. The first stage goes along Turku motorway until Lohja where we break away to the old road and turn our noses to a small b-route to Somero.
Stage two is the where the fun starts, the beautifully Finnish country side greeds us with open arms. Shift down and lean to those curves, this is where the thrill is born.
Back to the reality as we enter the third stage of our journey. The route goes through a small town of 9400 inhabitant´s called Somero.
After Somero the road opens again and the stage four could be as well called as the stairway to heaven. Here the true beauty of endless cornfields combined with addictive road building and cloudless sunny sky truly delights the eye. The road connects to a main road and eternal Sunday driving call´s yet again on stage five. This part of the journey takes the convoy to it´s most important stop before the Alastaro´s racetrack. The Shell Loimaa has been the safe heaven for track Freaks already a long long time. From here we get some V-Power; the elixir of the cars and some last moment shopping. Ok, no more stops nor dreaming. There is only 30km separating us from our goal. No time to waste! Gear up and lets go!
Once again we are blessed with an brilliant weather. I am already sweating before I get to the car and I can´t bear to think how the car is feeling not to mention how it´s going to feel after few laps. Yet; I did not come this far just for nothing! Strap my self to the four point belts, put on the helmet, turn all the settings to sport and press the pedal to the medal! Now it´s go time!!!
