Are You A Masochist That Likes The Snow? Then These Car Vs. Bike Races On The Cold Stuff Are For You!


Are You A Masochist That Likes The Snow? Then These Car Vs. Bike Races On The Cold Stuff Are For You!

While 32 degrees Fahrenheit sounds like frozen hell to me, in other parts of the world it’s T-shirt and jeans weather. When they talk about snow, they freaking mean it, and the racing doesn’t stop just because you’re up to your hind quarters in the cold stuff. Proof of that is this video, taken in Arjeplog, a town in the Lapland area of Sweden that is well-known for automotive winter testing. Here you have two match ups, one that makes sense and one that doesn’t. The primary race is between a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and a Yamaha R1. The Porsche has some rally cred to it’s name, but a liter bike on ice, even with tires that look like round cacti, just screams insanity. The second race is between a Mitsubishi EVO and a Yamaha 450WRF. It’s -25 degrees out, and it isn’t clear if that’s in Fahrenheit or Celsius. It doesn’t matter, because the drivers and riders apparently don’t care how cold it is. While it’s always great to see cars race on ice, the bikes are surprising, especially the R1, which behaves pretty much as if it’s on tarmac. Get your hot chocolate ready and click play below!
