Adventures of Subaru and SR86 on Grobnik aka Snow-Drift day

Woke up in the morning...found 5 cm of snow. Nothing big I say

Weather forecast was good, no more snow, sunny weather so I decided to go. Full tank please

Snow was melting on the road as you can see..

After 3 hours of towing on the snow and ice...

...we arrived at the track, to found out that there is so much snow. Guy with snow plow truck could not locate the road to the track.

What the hell, disconnected the trailer.
Start the Google maps and just like in video game drive the car on the map

Here....here....left.....right....good.

Behind the hill snow was high around 50cm, so I had to take 5 runs to reach the top. Noice the heat around TMIC

Finally at the track entrance...soon all the others 4x4 followed, Swift, Impreza, Evo...

Obviously, there was just too much snow on the track for my SR86 Corolla, so what else to do then track the Forester!
