Almost half a century later, this tradition is back. What started as an idea of two friends, is fast becoming a unique automotive winter festival in the magnificent Austrian alps!

After a remarkable comeback in 2019 and freezing cold temperatures, thousands of fans got to experience the thrill of the ice race for the first time in decades. The cars are faster, the atmosphere icy cold and the spikes do their part! Friends like Striezel Stuck came to Zell, driving a Formula 1 car on the ice - as did Max Verstappen. We‘ve also welcomed others like Ken Block, Mark Webber, Aksel Lund Svindal or JP Kraemer. After all, ICE RACE is about the people, especially the friends we’ve made all over the world.
