Classic Porsche races around freezing track

February 1, 2016 | By | In News, Video

With freezing temperatures gripping many parts of Germany, it comes as no surprise that the famous Nurburgring track is closed for winter.

Many parts of the legendary ‘Green Hell’ freeze over – making it little good for racing.

However, one car has braved the elements and made the best of the snowy conditions.

A Group-B specification Porsche 911 SC/RS, specially adapted for rallying, has shown off its prowess on even slippery white powder.

The car was initially designed to tackle desert stages, but has shown that it is equally adept at dealing with snow.

The 911 SC/RS manages to fly across the cold winter track, drifting and sliding with ease. It manages to navigate difficult corners, and somehow stays on the track despite the conditions.

Driver Patrick Simon does remarkably well to keep the car in order, using all of the car’s natural grip and precision to his advantage.
