Watch folks race in the Nordic sport of folkracing

For those who are not familiar with the sport of Folkracing, it’s a popular and inexpensive form of rally racing with older beat-up cars, which originated in Finland. The races take place on specially designed gravel tracks, and Nybohov Creation Ltd has created this beautifully colourful LEGO track for some micro rally cars to race around. The details and textures look fantastic, with everything from trees and foliage to landscaping with a couple of colourful buildings.

The landscaping is certainly varied, but my favourite part is the little bridge which is best seen from another angle.

The rules of Folkracing are different from a Demolition Derby as intentional crashes or ramming of vehicles is forbidden. I’m sure crashes do occur and it seems there has been a bit of a pile up on the track here, as the brown car is being towed away in a rather forlorn fashion.
