Benniz's rally driver debut - The thread

Recommended Posts

Hello good men!

It's been a long time since I've last made some noise, so here is some for you! Before Rally Hadeland I said to myself that it would virtually impossible to only do the one event, and yep, it was impossible. So, since February I have bought my own rally car, a Nissan Almera GTi, almost identical to the one we drove earlier this winter. The only difference is that it is only slightly more tuned, and has a limited slip differential. Here are some photo's of it:



I have been using some days with friends and family to get the car ready for our first event with it, Toftesprinten 18th of April, a short gravel sprint just outside Oslo. My co-driver and I are actually planning on making some live video coverage throughout the event with the app Meerkat, but firstly we're going to try this out when we do the very last preparations for the rally next Sunday. I'll get back to you with more information on that, if anybody could be interested in checking that out.

For now, that's all - but it goes to say: Don't try rallying if you're afraid you'll get hooked, because you will! :smiley:

* Benjamin thinks he see's turkeys on the road section
* Simen takes care of the handbrake on stage
* We meet an overhappy woman
* We sing in a horrible way
* We crash out of the rally

Hi again everybody!

Our first rallying season has been nothing but fantastic :) We have shared everything with our lovely Facebook followers on our page which now is in both Norwegian and English. Right now we are having a competition where the prize is a Steam code for DiRT Rally. I guess everybody here already own the game, but if not, why not join in - or at least check out all the fun we've been having in 2015 here:

We'll be back with much more in 2016 :)

Cheers!


Benjamin

Hi guys!

We sadly crashed our car in the last event we did in February, so now Knut (as the car's name is) will undergo a rebuild from one of our sponsors who works with car restoration. This is going to cost us a little, so we have started a crowd funding where our followers can donate a small amount to help us get the car back on the road. As a thanks for the donation we can offer a range of gifts back :)

The crowd funding is sadly only in Norwegian, but on our Facebook page we always publish notifications in both Norwegian and English. Maybe Google Translate can help! Great if you guys want to check it out at least, cheers :)
