VIDEO: Norwegian Ice Racing Puts Four to the Fjord

If there’s one motorsport event that’s least likely to see the light of day in Australia, its winter track days. We just don’t have the climate for it. Norway, on the other hand, is perfect for these sorts of things. All you need is some snow tires, the right sort of car (either AWD or RWD) and a large enough area of snow and ice.

From modern day Porsche 911’s to decades old 944’s, from Subaru WRX STi’s to Fiat Panda’s and even what looks to be a Tesla Roadster; these events attract all sorts both young and old, novice and experienced drivers alike. Filmed on a frozen lake called Tisleifjorden in Norway, this video has enough action to keep even the staunchest of ice racing fans happy.

Click through for the video or leave your piece in the comments section below. We’d also love to hear about any experiences you - the readers - have had with racing on ice or snow. Come on now, don’t be shy!
