Redbull Frozen Rush

Now that the weather has turned colder, at least here in Canada, our thoughts start to turn to winter racing.  In a few weeks the Rally of the Tall Pines will be taking place in Bancroft Ontario, which promises to be a great event.

For those into something a little less traditional check out the Redbull Frozen Rush is a head to head race competition between 900-horsepower Pro4 trucks down a ski slope. Eight trucks will compete in all at Maine’s Sunday River resort on January 10th, 2014. The race format will be a bracketed, single elimination with two drivers on course at a time.  In addition, the United States Auto Club has sanction the race and will oversee the competition.   If you happen to the be in the area you can simply walk up to the slopes and take a look at the action.

The race format sounds intriguing, with trucks barreling down slopes next to skiers and snowboarders and because it’s Redbull you know it’s going to be a good event.

Here’s a video from last year’s competition:

Happy Racing!
