If you happen to have a stock vintage snowmobile (for our purposes, that means “1973 or earlier”), and have the urge to race it, this weekend would be a perfect time to come to Pittsburg, New Hampshire, and do just that.
The race site is the Farr Road gravel pit, accessible from US Route 3 (turn left on Day Road, north of Pittsburg village), or from Snowmobile Corridor 140.
Details and contact information here.
While you’re in Pittsburg you can go a little farther north on Rt. 3 to see the eighteen inches between the US and Canadian customs houses that don’t belong to either country (thanks to 19th century surveying error). If you go a little farther north on Rt. 3 into Quebec, you come to Magnetic Hill, where a car left in neutral will roll uphill. (The customs guys can tell you exactly where it is.) Do it now before you need a passport to see it!
If this weekend is already booked, you can come to Colebrook on February 2nd instead. The race in Colebrook will be at Northern Tire, which isn’t too far from where I live.
