ISRA 2006 World Championship.
7-14 October, Soragna, Italy

ISRA Welcome

In the town of Soragna in Italy the ISRA 2006 World Championship was held during the beginning of october.
I left Sweden on Friday afternoon and I spent the morning packing all my stuff. At the first attempt I had overweight both on the carry on luggage as well as the suitcase. Not a surprise there.
Anders Gustafson and Mikael Landrud came by me at their way to the airport. There we meet Lars Harrysson.
The flight to Milano worked fine and the diesel rental car sounded really good. Maybe a broken exhaust pipe.
Close to Soragna we had booked beds at a Bed & Breakfast. After checking in, the place was full. Both rooms.
The owners did not understand a single word of English and none of use speak any Italian so everything started well.
Our attempt to find a place to eat ended with the owner first calling a restaurant to book table and then he drove in front of us to show the way to the restaurant in a nearby village.
There we faced again the task on language barriers paired with no written menu available. We took the easy route and ordered "Quatro speziale".

On Saturday it was free practice and the whole day was waiting in line to drive, drive, marshaling, making changes to the cars, back in line and so on.
Sunday was like Saturday but with the difference that practice was now organized so you did not have to wait in line.
