Síðasta keyrsla TS15 // TS15's final goodbye

Nýju ári fylgir nýtt upphaf og hjá Team Spark þýðir það að kveðja bíl síðasta árs, TS15, og setja fullan kraft í TS16 sem verður afhjúpaður í Apríl. Bílar eins og TS15 eiga þó skilið kveðju við hæfi og af því tilefni tókum við gömul notuð dekk, boruðum í þau skrúfbolta og vorum þá komin með frábær nagladekk. Þá var bara að bíða eftir góðu veðri og þegar það loksins kom var haldið upp að Hafravatni þar sem bíllinn fékk að reyna sig við ísakstur. Afraksturinn má sjá á myndbandinu hér

New year, new beginnings. At Team Spark this means saying goodbye to our old car TS15 and focusing our full effort on TS16 which will be unveiled in April. Before we could do that we had to give TS15 a proper farewell so we took some old tires, fitted them with custom made spikes and waited for the day when the weather gods favored us. Finally in mid January we took TS15 up to Hafravatn lake in Iceland where TS15 faced unknown territory, driving on ice. The results can be seen in the video here .
