Merry Christmas!

Ho ho ho!
It's this time of the year again, my own private Swedish Rally starts!
Tomorrow at the break of dawn the first stint goes to Stockholm. I have arranged so the E4 will be free from all other traffic so I can cut the corners as I wish and try to better my personal record. The winner (me of course) will receive something we in Sweden call "julskinka", "glögg" and "sill". After a few days that mainly consists of moving large amounts of white cold stuff from one place to another I will let my back rest for a few days.
Instead I will act as co-driver (mostly watching videos and eating junk food) on the newly developed all-carbon Y-buss - all the way to the arctic test tracks in Härnösand. There I will most probably dive deep into even more "julskinka", "glögg" and "sill".
Then on Thursday I do it all again but backwards.
This is what we in Sweden call vacation. If it wasn't for "julskinka", "glögg" and "sill" I would call it something else...
I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Happy racing (as always!)
