Drag Race

Perfect! On the beach on a sunny day...
.
...or not!
Instead went to Alastaro Finland to see
what is drag racing...
- poor me!
.
First a lot of smoke...
.
and then suddenly the car is into small pieces!
No, not really,
but sometimes it can happen
.
The world famous Finnish ski-jumper
Janne Ahonen was driving there too
.
Risto "Bad To The Bone" Poutiainen in the red car
.
The starting point
- the track is 400m long
and always 2 cars competing to each other
.
Mechanics at work
- putting Risto's car ready for the next round
.
.
There's also a race for children with tiny cars
.
The track must be clean from all possible stuff
.
.
Risto was the second in the finals
and now leading the European grand prix
- next race is in Mantorp Sweden,
the following in Hockenheim Germany
and the final race in Santa Pod England
.
