No. 8 Atlanterhavsvegen – “On the way to Nordkapp”

The road looks more spectacular in bad weather, on this sunny day it was just ok.

The summer of 2015 me and my daughter decided to drive from Stavanger in Norway, and all the way up to Nordkapp.

To make the trip “complete”, after visiting Nordkapp we also drove all the way down to Lindesnes in the south.

The trip was done with our family car, the Volvo V40 R Design 1,6 diesel.


This is video number 8 of 14 from our road trip back in 2015.
“Norge på langs”   –   “Norway lengthwise”

KM in total was 6080, the road trip took 12 days.

#Nordkapp


Situated in Norway, The Atlantic Road (in Norwegian called Atlanterhavsveien or Atlanterhavsvegen) is a part of Norwegian national road 64 (Rv 64).

It is close to the cities Molde and Kristiansund in the modest part of the Norwegian coastline. It is ranked first on The Guardian’s list of the world’s best road trips!

This fantastic and spectacular road is a very popular tourist attraction. Both the local population and tourist visitors frequently use the road to go fishing for cod and other fish directly from the bridges. One of the bridges is special designed for fishing.

PIRELLI BELGIAN GRAND PRIX PREVIEW

Round 13 of 21
Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, 25-28 August 2016

Following a short summer break, Formula 1 resumes at the one of the most epic drivers’ circuits of them all: Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. The P Zero medium, soft and supersoft tyres have been nominated for the longest lap of the year at 7.004 kilometres, which places high-energy loads through the tyres. Spa-Francorchamps in fact provides a real multi-faceted challenge for the tyres, and by extension for the teams and drivers as well. The historic circuit at the foothills of the Ardennes is renowned for its changeable weather, meaning that there is a true microclimate to provide a constant additional parameter for the strategists to consider.

THE CIRCUIT FROM A TYRE POINT OF VIEW:

  • Loads through the tyres are among the biggest of the year due to the long and fast corners.
  • Elevation changes also create vertical forces for tyres through compressions like Eau Rouge.
  • Rain is quite likely, but it frequently rains just on one part of the circuit and not on another.
  • Set-up is a compromise between low drag for straights and downforce for corners: not easy.
  • There are plenty of overtaking opportunities, which mean that strategy options are quite open.
  • F1 returns with yet another back-to-back: after Spa it’s straight to Pirelli’s home race at Monza.

THE THREE NOMINATED COMPOUNDS:

  • White medium: a mandatory set that must be available for the race, low working range.
  • Yellow soft: again a mandatory set, should feature in the race but not ideal for long stints.
  • Red supersoft: will be used for qualifying with a focus on performance rather than durability.

HOW IT WAS A YEAR AGO:

  • Lewis Hamilton won comfortably with a two-stop strategy, changing tyres on laps 13 and 30.
  • Best alternative strategy: Max Verstappen finished eighth from 18th on the grid, having adopted a three-stop strategy and passing several cars on track.

PAUL HEMBERY, PIRELLI MOTORSPORT DIRECTOR:                     

“Spa-Francorchamps needs no introduction as one of the most iconic circuits out there. For the tyres, it’s a demanding track with the sort of high-energy loads that make it absolutely thrilling to drive. It’s not easy to find the right set-up but with such a long lap and plenty of overtaking opportunities, there are a number of different strategy permutations possible. During the summer break we’ve started testing the 2017-size tyres, and we look forward to a busy second half of the season as we continue the testing campaign and also move straight on to our home race the weekend after Belgium.”

WHAT’S NEW?

  • There are no significant changes to the Spa-Francorchamps circuit and infrastructure this year.
  • Esteban Ocon becomes a full-time Formula 1 driver, taking over from Rio Haryanto at Manor.

OTHER THINGS THAT HAVE CAUGHT OUR EYE RECENTLY:

  • Pirelli was at the forefront in Spa last month with the famous 24 Hours. It was the Italian firm’s biggest-ever event with a total of 65 cars fitted and 10,724 tyres over 29,269 cumulative laps.
  • The 2017 tyre tests with modified mule cars got underway at the beginning of the month, with Ferrari at Fiorano (driven by Sebastian Vettel and Esteban Gutierrez on wets) and Red Bull at Mugello (driven by Sebastien Buemi on slicks).

Sauber Formula 1 Team, I thank you for this 🙂

Sauber F1 Team has actually posted something I wrote, and I really appreciate this.
I’ve written down a little bit about why I was above average interested in Formula 1.
In time I will try to write more and better.
Normally I write “Inspection Reports” and not too much here on the blog 🙂

Please go over and have a look, I will make a link to Sauber web page, and one to their fantastic Google Plus profile.

I hope you will find it interesting, and I wish you a great weekend.
