Racing on snow

Snowcross buddies.
It's no secret that J loves cars and driving fast. He's been doing autocross for a couple of years and started snowcross this year when he got his hands on a suitable car. Snowcross is timed laps on a snow course with a non-plated car. He's been out a few times this year, but last weekend was the first time the kids and I could go watch.

Family picture!
The biggest difference between autocross in the summer and snowcross in the winter, for us spectators, is the cold. We were bundled up and sat on a snowbank to watch the cars. It was chilly. But the kids were happy to be there, cheering on cars as they went past. Waiting eagerly for their dad.

When you ask Little J what he wants to be when he grows up, he says a racecar driver.

  1. What is a non-plated car? In any case, looks like fun!

    My daughter goes winter camping with Girl Guides sometimes and they make them bring little pads ("sit-upons") to sit on in the snow - just a bit of foam and plastic between you and the ground (apparently) makes a big difference. They sell them at the MEC or you can Google sit-upon and there's lots of Girl Guide sites that explain how to make one.
