ISRA 2005 World Championship
This year the ISRA Worlds were contested on the island of
Malta in the south of the mediterranean south of Sicily.
As I have wrote earlier I will not make any race report from this trip
it will instead be some pictures that I took.
The weather on Malta was nice for racing. Not that much sun,
to miss, and nice and warm evenings.
One surprise to see were the mixture of cars on the roads like this
fine piece of English car
From the 8:th of October all the way until 14:th of October
there were practice and racing for all the classes.
The racing was held at the hotel Western Dragonara. Mario
Azzorpardi was the main man behind it. The hotel was located in a area
with a lot of pubs and restaurants and had it not been the possibility
for racing and practice we would probably have spent more time there
than what we did. We also had the price dinner and ceremony there.

official opening of the ISRA 2005 World Championship
The opening had nice looking dancers and more than one racer
stopped their work to watch them.

A lot of well known faces, and gestures, was seen. It was nice
to again meet drivers from the "east" block. That is something you
rarely see in wing car racing.

Kuropiy and Valentin Iskandarov from Ukraina.
A lot of the racers carry their chassis, motors and bodies
with them as hand luggage in case their checked in luggage would be
late. This happended for a few drivers like Josef Korec and Anders
Gustafson whos luggage got lost in Frankfurt and Rome.

with some additional tags arrived several days late
