There is no way that I could possibly truly describe Gatebil, it’s just not possible. For some inexplicable reason, 44,000 people gather at Rudskogen Motorsenter in Norway, for a 3-day long, what the event organizers call “track day.” Although to call this just a “track day” would be the most serious understatement of all time.
Gatebil is way more than just a track day; hell it’s pretty much a way of life.
Gatebil: arguably one of the craziest weekends in the automotive world. 4 weeks ago, they held an event in Sweden at Mantorp Park. It was unlike anything I had ever seen. Roughly 20,000 people showed up and there must have been at least 1,000 participants. Something I feel as though could never happen in the US.
Gatebil doesn’t just focus on one area of motorsport either. Drifters, time attack racers, and people who just want some track time are all welcome.
