Ice racing reaches its finale in Auvergne

The prestigious Andros Trophy ice-racing championships will reach its season-ending climax at Super-Besse near Auvergne on January 31st next year.

Based on the hugely-popular sport of rallying, this takes extreme under-tyre conditions to a whole new level as specially modified, souped-up automobiles are thrashed around ice circuits in some of France’s most beautiful and famous locations.

A typical Andros Trophy event will see competitors pit themselves against one another through qualifying rounds and into the final.

At Super-Besse, the best drivers will be staking their claim to walk away with the coveted trophy after a long and gruelling season keeping their cars as firmly stuck to the ice as possible.

Former Formula One star Alain Prost is the current three-time defending Andros Trophy champion – proving he’s just as adept at driving a rally car round on the ice as he was touring the world’s motor racing circuits.

The Andros Trophy traces it’s history back to 1990, when the first formal event took place in the ski resort of Serre Chevalier.

    I was lucky enough to attend this event in 2007 and although it was below zero the ice racing was spectacular. There is plenty of vin chaud on tap and hot food is available to keep you warm but wrap up with several thermal layers just in case. I would definitely recommend it.
