Team Karhunmäki

"Fast vehicles, fast females, fast algorithms — what more could a male bear want?"


Team Karhunmäki Logo

Team Karhunmäki is known for its various motorized vehicles. Team owns e.g. ATVs, motorbikes, and a Grand Tourer Injection class car. The Main Driver and the Mechanic of the team – the Male Bear – is very fond of these fast vehicles. The Bear Cubs are following Male Bear's traits and have (very fast!) vehicles of their own. The Female Bear, for the most part, is indifferent to the team's activities, but she enjoys the passion of the rest of the team.
