Carbage Run 2019 Winter Edition Finishing in Helsinki

Starting today, the Carbage Run 2019 Winter Edition, The Ultimate Road Trip, has started and is now on it's way to Helsinki!

The Carbage Run 2019 Winter Edition will drive all the way up north to Sweden and then come down to Helsinki, where it will close the event with a big party right in the center of Helsinki on Friday night. 

 

 

Carbage Run 2019 Winter Edition

This year The Carbage Run 2019 Winter Edition has approximately 400 cars that have pledged to drive 2500 kilometers through the snow in a car that costs less than €500.

People who will go through snow, wind, cold and possible mechanical or other types of failure, must be looking forward to arriving in Helsinki by Friday, right?

 

 

Live-Updates from Carbage Run 2019 this week at Discover Helsinki

 

A party on 1600 wheels indeed, but will they make it all the way to Helsinki in their cheap but pimped up cars?

Do the drivers know how to drive through snow, and are they prepared?

How many do you think will actually arrive in Helsinki? And even if they do arrive, where will they park?

And even if they make it here, will they also manage to get back? How many drivers do you think will not make it to the finish line?

It certainly is promising to be a pretty wild ride for a colourful crowd of contestants.

We will provide further updates on the progress of the Carbage Run this week, so stay tuned for more!
