In The Moment: Gatebil Rudskogen

Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. Forget the other Gatebil events that occur throughout the year for a moment, because the festival of automotive excess happening at Rudskogen, Norway, this weekend is the big one. It’s the epitome of what Gatebil is all about and has become a Mecca for car enthusiasts all around the world.

We’ve already survived the first and relatively calm day – at least by Gatebil standards – to bring you some highlights of what you can expect to see on your screens in the coming week.

We’ll be splitting our time between covering the wildest driving and action on track, from 100mph-plus wall runs to the smokiest power slides.

We’ll also be hunting down the wildest of cars that you just have to know about. How’s this as a perfect example – a twin-engined Starlet that does huge four-wheel drive drifts.

But just to mix things up a little from how we’ve done it in the past, we’re also going to let some Gatebil regulars – and newbies – tell you what it’s like to be here.

As always, if you can’t wait until our next post, you can follow our Instagram account where Alok and I will be bringing you a behind the scenes look from Norway, whilst Larry will be showing you what’s happening right now at Formula D Japan at Fuji Speedway.

It’s a great weekend for Speedhunting.

The twin-engined Starlet looks insane i cant wait to be able to read about it and see some nice pictures of it.

BenIngle It deserves a full feauture!


Wanted to buy some t-shirts, but you didn'tr bring any? :


Bil, my man!


It was good seeing you again Paddy! Hope you're getting home safe!


that Quattro Rocco... o.o


I can't wait to see all of the pictures of Gatebil! Stop by Peppes, and have some pizza for me!


Every country on Earth gets to have the R34 but America. Now, I'm not often ashamed of my country, but...

God, I just hope there are some left when the 25-year importation restriction expires. 

Fucking Feds.


Im pretty sure you can import them as long as you bring it up to DOT standards, airbags, abs, emissions, etc. I'm not sure what it lacks.
In fact, there is an r32 and r34 that are driven in my area regularly.
A friend if mine used to import Ferraris and do just that. He even saved a little bit of money.


Can't wait, Gatebil must be one of my favorite car events of the year. Very nice cars, very nice builds, intresting setups.

And ofcourse the Gatebil tradition: getting so close to the pitwall that everyone gets covered with sand.


fredyka Yes it's Kenneth ALM's car which has been featured on speedhunters before. Very intresting build!


The Starlet reminds me of the Suzuki Escudo from GT2


EvolveWRC that legendary wall grinder..


@Linus Gatebil clashed with another event so our merchandise partners couldn't make it. Sorry!


Guess what was the inspiration... :)
