oldstyle weekend sihlbrugg



A gravel pit, cool cars, like minded people and some great bands: This is what the Oldstyle Weekend is all about. And this is all we need to have a great party. And boy what a party it was, with more participants than ever before, sunshine, almost no rain and even a delicious breakfast on sunday morning. One of my favourites was the "racing" action. Hopefully there're gonna be more racers next year. Click here for some pics I took or enjoy the slideshow.


First contestants were the Solèr bros in their 1927 roadster.


Yeah baby!


Dry lakes racing reloaded.


Bierli Trinkä is not a crime.


Nice El Camino.

  6. hehe thanks sondre :-) the race consisted of three checkpoints. at each checkpoint, there was a bucket full of potatoes. and each co-driver had to take one of the potatoes with the bamboo pole and take it to the next checkpoint. funny swiss games, huh? :-))

    Apologies for the lack of fireworks - I was drunk.

    Beer and pyrotechnics are not a good combination!
