    For those unknown to Baltic Open here's a quick info package:
    Baltic Open is an unofficial Formula SAE / Student -style event started back in 2003 by teams from Helsinki and Luleå. Baltic Open is characterized by replacing the static events to be more dynamic, offer more team interaction and to include special events like Super Slalom and city centrum show run. Baltic Open is known for it's atmosphere and it offers a better chance to make and maintain team to team friendships and focuses on allowing team members to network more with fellow competitors. This is further promoted by allowing alumni teams and vintage cars. And of course it's fun and the battle for victory is fiery!

    Sorry, there is really bad reception at the competition venue and thus the mobile upload connection is sometimes really laggy.

    We will try to find a better spot for the antenna tomorrow, hopefully it works better.

    That's a really nice picture, we got so inspired at ELiTH that we tried to three-wheel twice during the weekend!
