Monaco Grand Prix F1
Since RL Nat's were run as a Thursday to Saturday
event Sunday was free of racing for us.

The Finns stayed in Mönsterås until Sunday morning
and then left of to Stockholm and the ferries.
Mats Hummel invited them to visit our raceway at SSC (Stockholm
Slotcar Club) and since we had a TV-set there and Formula
1 was on they accepted gladly.
We all came to the track just in time for the start so
we all wondered why David Couldthard was not on pole.
Mika Häkkinen was able to follow Schumacher on the first
lap and it came into a rather boring event waiting for
the pit stops.
Meantime the Finns strolled around and looked at our
place and to drive it we turned the power on and put some
rentalcars on the track. Soon all lanes were occupied so
we started up our good old trusted Swedaxi and drove some
Jari, Juha, Marko, Andy, Kimmo and Esa-Pekka.
Kimmo, Juha, Marko, Esa-Pekka and Andy.
After some rental car driving I gave them the
opportunity to try a G-7 wingcar (with a lot of choke on
Flexi car glue).
They all drove a few laps and then handed the
controller over to the next guy.
Andy surprised us all of being so fast right away.
