Works Cooper on ice


I was out with the Austin Mini Cooper -62 last weekend to take part of an ice racing event. The racing part of the event was cancelled as the ice was to bad. But a lot of nice vehicles were on site so still worth the 120 km drive, one way, and to pay entrance of 100 SEK. I have pictures from the event on the hard drive and will sort out some of them and publish, when time admits.


Meanwhile you can watch the picture above of the Cooper in front of the old steel works in Forsbacka, just west of Gävle, about 120 km north of Uppsala. I passed it on the way home from the ice racing event. I had to stop and make a picture. A Cooper in front of steel works, that must be a Works Cooper, or?  Just imagine what a Mini workshop this place could be if money and time was unlimited!

The subject of this blog update was “Works Cooper on ice”. If you just combine the two parts in the text above, then the subject is covering it all! :-)
