Despite the unusually warm winter we're having this year, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to have Jessi and Patrick check ice racing off The List
. So we sent them to New York to meet our good friend and ice-racing expert, Engadget.com
editor-in-chief Tim Stevens, for an inside look at this very special and frigid sport. Thanks to the courtesy of the Adirondack Motor Enthusiast Club
, they were able to get in and complete their objective before the warm temperatures returned the track back into a lake.
As Tim explains in the episode, the great thing about ice racing is the amount of time you actually spend racing. And with two classes that cover both stock and modified vehicles, anyone can race with whatever they've got in their garage. But as Jessi and Patrick learn, racing on ice is easier said than done.
