Some footage from this year:

We were not really racing here, just playing sideways. It goes faster if you don't drift so much.

Nice pics!

I agree - the F20 has a brilliant chassie for going sideways
My previous E87 120d had all the torque you needed, but in a very short rev range which in combination with the manual gearbox made it real hard to drift well. My current 125d auto has both the torque as well as the longer rev range which comes in handy whilst shoveling some snow

It would be real nice trying out the F20 with proper rallye-spiked tires.

Preferably an M135i X-drive!
Our 116i does not have enough power to work properly with rally tyres on ice.

My opinion exactly!

The ice isn't good enough around here this year which sucks. The last three years we've had several weekends with sunshine and -10 to -15 degrees. http://www.huddungeracing.se/galleri

I found your lake on Google Maps!

The weather has not been very suitable in Norway either this season. Because of snowy weather, there are very few pictures and videos online from this year. Here is an example of how nice it was last year:

Splendid video!

The first guy to put a roof box on his Lamborghini, was a Swedish skiing star! These guys in the video are not really representative for most Norwegians. The event is sponsored by a shop selling exotic cars.

Haha, you're quite right! Jon Olsson right? Nah, I realize, I actually lived in norway for a bit.
I can assure you that Huddunge Racing isn't sponsored by anything but the hot dog stand at the event

Does anyone know how tune friendly the xdrive systems are? Figured since you can change the software in some haldex, thorsen and VAG 4-motion etc.
Perhaps there is no need with the xdrive?

I doubt that it is possible (yet) to tune the X-drive. It does fortunately seem to work rather well as it is. I haven't driven the M135i X-drive myself, but I have heard that it handles a bit like a RWD car.
