2011-ieji prasidėjo „Arabų pavasariu“ pramintais neramumais, kai Tunise ir Egipte nuversti ilgus dešimtmečius šalis valdę lyderiai. Japoniją supurtė galingas žemės drebėjimas, sukėlęs vieną didžiausių cunamio bangų. Stichija sugriovė Fukušimos branduolinę jėgainę, o išsilydžius keliems reaktoriams į aplinką pateko radiacija. Ši nelaimė laikoma didžiausia branduoline katastrofa nuo sprogimo Černobylyje.

Iki rekordo pristigo pusantros minutės

2006-aisiais „Facebook“ iš uždaro JAV universitetų socialinės medios portalo tapo atviras visiems pasaulio vartotojams. Tais pačiais metais ekranuose pasirodė ir viena prieštaringiausių komedijų – „Boratas“, o Britney Spears nusiskuto galvą. Lietuvoje šie metai buvo irgi itin pašėlę. Į Euroviziją išsiuntėme iškilių vyrų desantą, parvežusį garbingą šeštąją vietą ir pralinksminusį Europą savo daina „We are the winners“, o vasarą jau septintą kartą rinkomės į „Horn Grand Prix 1003 km lenktynes“.

Talents of 1000 km Race

Most of the fans of 1000km race in Palanga can tell that the 6th race was really memorable. Not because of the dramatic race but for the nature’s surprises.

When night comes at noon

On July 31st 2005 “Horn Grand Prix 1003 km race“ participants were not afraid of the started rain. However, after a few hours into the race, the skies turned black and the wind has started. Mother Nature played no jokes. The storm was so bad that for safety reasons the race speed was minimised to minimum. One tent got so high in the air that all the people that got hold of it had to jump to the ground.
