How to start DOHC engine in very gold weather (-15 to -25)
Warm it ! > Ok here is photos how to do it."Normal in Finland"
First you need to have a FIRE! Some special tools and plenty of time.

This was the way I warmed my DOHC engine, oil and spark plugs in Rovaniemi Ice-Track days
Gently and with out rush! Not too close and with time!
Then I start the engine and kept it running (1500 to 3000 rpm) until the water temperature was + 80 degrees. After that, in the Ice-Track!!

PART 2 !! > Ice-Track 15-16.02.2008 in Alahärmä, organised by Mika Kalliokoski
Here is part 2 with the subrise that I promis to you, good readers.
Jere Kalliokoski, 10 years old boy and his "little" toycars.

First a story and photos from year 2006 from Ice-Track day in ALAHÄRMÄ. Jere (8 years) and his friend Roni (4 years)!!

"These first photos are from the future Gordini drivers! Jere and Niko Kalliokoski. This is the secret of "Flying Finn". Education must start as soon as possible "

"As you can see even a little Gordini can go sideways and roll over. But the wonderful sound of these little cars and the passion of these little drivers....IT REALY WAS SOMETHING!! ps The difference between fathers and sons toy's was ???"

Look at that SMILE!!

Think when Jere (10 years) and his friends talk a bought their toy cars " I got a new toy car, Rally Escort from matchbox " says Jeres friend. " I have Renault 8 Gordini and Escort RS 2000" says Jere and continue "but mine are real rally cars!"
This discust is one of the thousand reasons (not very common!) why there is so many sucselfully race/rally drivers in the World from Finland.

Look for Escort bedals!! They are made specialy for Jere!

How did Jere drive??
Sidevays like we all did and very well! You must come next year with us in Alahärmä Ice-Track days so you can see!
It may be so that Nico is driving there too....Lets see..Yes and there is Roni (6 years) and growing fast too..

And the race continue all night long in living room, in SAUNA and so one...
