Supercars vs superbikes… on ice
The Yamaha YZF R1 is a beast of a motorcycle. Riding it on ice is madness. Equipping it with insane, spiked tyres and then racing against a Porsche GT3RS on a full-size arctic race track is categorically amazing.
The track on which these psychopaths are racing is a 1:1 replica of French track Le Castellet (Circuit Paul Ricard), transposed onto the frozen wilderness of Lapland. Also joining in the shenanigans is a Mitsubishi Evo 9 and a WRF 450, whose rider will no doubt be doing his best to avoid falling off in front of those spiked tyres. Especially when they’re travelling at 160mph.
The clip was produced by French motor magazine Moto Journal as a teaser for “Ice Age 5”, to be released on 25 March, in which the winner will be revealed. I know which beast my money is on.
