Default Winter Jumps 2010-2011 - Finnish Indoor Electric Off-Road Series

Winter Jumps 2010-2011 #1 - Nokia:
Our Finnish Indoor Electric Off-Road Series started at Nokia in October 2010.

Main classes in the series is 10th scale 2WD and 4WD. Also CORR is run as an extra class if there is enough drivers to it.

Track was awesome and 10 cars finals were pretty hectic on a relatively short track.

Here is some video from the event:

Winter Jumps 2010-2011 #2 - Vantaa:
Second event of the series was run in Vantaa, near Helsinki. Track was the best track that I've run indoors ever. Front jump was huge. Pictures just doesn't do justice.

JQ was running 2wd and 4wd.

Winter Jumps 2010-2011 #3 - Oulu:
Oulu is 600 km to north from Helsinki so the place is pretty close to the arctic circle. Anyway weather wasn't that bad outside, only -10 C.

Track was built to school hall with innovative use of gym equipment. Local star driver Vesa Yli was racing in 4wd with Serpentine/Durango proto.

Our indoor season is now over. 10th scale 4WD champion is Ari Heinonen with Team Durango DEX410. In 2WD, champion is (3rd time in a row) Petri Ström with X Factory X-6.

Finnish Outdoor Electric Off-Road Championship Series (a.k.a Maastosarja) starts on 14th of may and WC Warm-Up is raced a week later in Vaasa. I'll be racing 4wd in these events and hopefully I'll get someone to film them for me.

If you want to see videos from season 2009-2010, you can find them here.

Love the different layouts!

When they aren't on the carpet what surface are they on? Tile, concrete, wood?

So you don't need to get dirty to Finnish first? Throw some dirt on it, it will feel better.

#1 Nokia was on Astro Turf & concrete.
#2 Vantaa was on tiles made out of stones and concrete.
#3 Oulu was on 100% carpet.
#4 Turku was on carpet & concrete.
#5 Jyväskylä was on tiles made out of some kind of plastic or composite.
#6 Helskinki was on concrete.

Schumacher Mini pin is maybe the best all around tyre for these surfaces.

It's not that bad, honest!

^ I raced in that race and it truly sucked. Everything was failing 'cause of wet mud.
