The tools: Audi S4, Toyota Celica 4WD and 3 Series BMW. The target: Männiku karjäär icetrack 15 minutes away from central Tallinn. Purpose: to have fun.
And boy did we have fun. Upon arriving to the track we noticed there were aproximately 60 cars driving the lap. They were driving fast. It was crowded. To me it seemed cars were driving bit too close to each other. Hell, no insurance company would pay me anything if I crashed my car racing.
I turned off all safety electronics. They just keep your speed down and take away the fun. After fooling around for 15 minutes some cars left the track and there was room. I joined the track. Yes, I was first nervous of those tuned up Ladas and Subarus coming sideways ten metres behind me. After a few laps I just though What the hell. This is better than Playstation. and let go. This is what cars with big engines are for. Racing!
I admit. It was stupid in terms of risks. Under no circumstances any insurance company would pay any compensation if I had crashed my car in an unofficial icetrack in some random lake. But hey! Everything which is fun is either stupid, illegal or unhealthy.
