radar run…

today was a beautiful day…sunny, no wind to speak of and not terribly cold!  I saw in the paper the snowmobile Radar Runs were taking place today at Sunset Park,Lake Nipissing, so I decided to take a few minutes and take a look…I used to love going to these events when I was younger…driving a snowmobile was very high on my list of a good time…I managed to get a few photos, but I have to say the lack of attendance surprised me…there were a large number of participants but very few spectators…years ago when I attended it was wall to wall people, it was difficult to get a good viewing spot for each event…radarrun.sunsetpark.2013.

the photo below should be to the left of the photo above…didn’t know how to pan with the camera so did it in two shots…regardless of the lack of spectators the participants  to enjoyed themselves…if you look very closely at the top photo you can see the track just left of centre in the photo…



just finished his races…

  1. I would never have guessed that races like this existed, I can imagine how much fun they would be.

    • lol…they are fun…what was even more fun was there used to be a winter carnival on the ice, with snow mobile races, loved it…it was amazing, but the organizers couldn’t count on the weather, so stopped having it, which was disappointing.
