It’s currently so hot at GRR towers that we’re concerned some of our desks may be about to melt. So, given that things you see and hear can affect how you feel, here’s something truly freezing cold to give you a respite from heatmageddon 2k22.

And, thankfully, it’s bloody awesome too. A nice 100 seconds or so onboard a Porsche 550 Spyder as it drifts around an ice racing circuit against... another Porsche 550 Spyder. Yes, that’s two c$5million cars both drifting gently around a lake.

We’ve not been to GP Ice Race in Zell am See in Austria, but right now this looks like exactly where we plan on spending our January next year, preferably up to our necks in snow… or maybe piloting a Porsche 550 Spyder.

Welcome to Goodwood Elevenses, a mid-morning helping of motoring-related amusement to help break up your day. Watch the last video: This is what it's like to race a Peugeot Le Mans winner
