Good PR ? Don't think so!

This happened twice, at the same track, two years in a row, the same guy.

That he was actually allowed to continue driving is embarrassing. That his butt twice appeared in a Swedish evening paper as the only report from Swedish sidecar-racing is even worse!

That happened only once

That happened only once not twice like Johanna told. It was 02.05.2002 in Pionjär, Sweden.

Relax Johan.....
Who appointed you "Guardian of morals?"
Where´s your sense og humour? Maybe you should change your tactics, if you want more attention in the papers?? ;-)

NO I think they finished almost last, but contrary to the others teams, were Michael and Mats in the newspaper 8-)
Thats also good PR for sidecarcross. :shock:

P.S.

I know that it is very difficult to drive with a bare butt. I have been there.
So respect Mats 8-) :shock:

Me the "Guardian of Morality" ?

You don't know me.

No. What it's about is the sorry state that sidecarcross has gone into in Sweden. Few teams. Not that much practising by more than a few top teams. I've just tried a few laps altogether, with Conny. Barely steering speed really. It's exhausting. If I where to do this for real, I would train year-round so that when the racing is done, I can go to work the following week.

Almost no races. There are five (5) in Sweden this year. Even if you buy a used bike, wear last decades clothing and only have a towed trailer after your car, it's a LOT of money spent for just these five races.
It seems though as if everybody is pleased with this. At the annual meeting nobody raised an opinion on the number of races. Nobody thinks our (you the drivers and passengers) image matters (as some of your responses show), nobody can afford clean clothes for each race (that's two shirts each).

So. My point is:

Sure, if I weren't concerned with this sport I would have found the picture very funny. As it is, the attention it gets, THE ONLY attention this sport gets sometimes, it's just sad.
