    This weekend it was time for Speedweekend on ice not so far away from where i live.
    It´s about going as fast as you can over 1km, and you have 1,5km to get up to speed, then you get a average from that 1km long stretch.
    And some racing around it with different tracks on the ice.

    I used the Oly 40-150mm F2.8 and Canon 300mm F2.8

    Absolutely brilliant! That's made my weekend. Great photos, and the vehicles are just bonkers. I never knew such things existed.

    It´s quite fun to see these machines and the drivers, but as far as i know, they race them once every year, and it´s on this event :p
