Dump Rally

A friend of mine works at a private dump and recycling facility in town and set up a dirt/ice course over the weekend. Never tried racing on loose surface before but it was a blast. The  92x was like a limo compared to the MR2 and 240sx that were out there with me. Here's a few pics.

Re: Dump Rally

Probably would have felt like a monster compared to them if it had a turbo. Glad you had fun. Try to take advantage of it as much as you can!

Re: Dump Rally

The all wheel drive took care of me since I could actually use the power I had available. For sure wish I had the turbo indeed though! The mud left in the wheels made for an unpleasant freeway ride home...

Re: Dump Rally

Looks like a blast!



For cheap winter driving thrills in the Calgary area I usually head out to Ghost Lake and practice my sliding. driving

Some of the local racing clubs even run a driver training course on the lake from Jan - March.

Re: Dump Rally

I saw that the solo club does those trainings but they are 180 bucks this year... I know one of the instructors for it actually (he was driving the mr2 above). I'll head out to ghost lake sometime when I can just get on for free... No pylons though sad

$180 BUCKS!  sadbanana

3 years ago it was $25, last year it was ~$70, now $180. That's some serious inflation. I'm glad I did it before it became cool biggrin

Just watch out for the ice fishing holes! A guy lost his front wheel there a few years back from side swiping one.
