In the middle of the winter, when most sport, super and hypercars are stored away in a climate-controlled environment, there is a new pearl on the automotive agenda called THE ICE.
THE ICE was founded in 2019 by a few enthusiasts and the concept was refined during the Covid years. The 2022 edition directly reached international attention as the-place-to-be in winter.
What to expect arriving on the lake in a cold winter morning? Under normal circumstances your unique Testarossa Spider or latest the 1of3 Zonda HP Barchetta with Horacio Pagani on the wheel would be the star of the event – but in St.Moritz they are “among-others” in a 50-car stunning line-up – did I mention that a black 250 GTO was causally doing some laps on snow!!
GTspirit photographer David Kaiser provides you with these amazing photo galleries, 100+ dynamic and static impressions, enjoy!
The cars were grouped in different categories, one of them named “Barchettas on the lake”
Location: St. Moritz, home of wintersport, well known for the breathtaking alpine landscape combined with chic, elegance and international jet-set ever since. The frozen lake provides the ground for this International Concours Elegance.
The next class was named “Vintage Grand Prix”
“Stars on Wheels” was next – Aston Martin DB5 “Goldfinger” chasing a Ferrari 250GTE Polizia,
One of the highlights was the open “Parc Fermé”, accessible to the public. Everyone was able to admire the cars from close, take photos without barriers and still, people were humble and respectful to each other and the precious cars. We hope THE ICE will keep that spirit and not follow a VIP/commercial approach as many other events throughout the year.
Several exhibition tents from Pagani, Maserati and Ferrari Classiche inbetween food stands surrounded the parc fermé.
Later afternoon the track was opened again after the ICE CONTROL Maserati did its laps.
The next ICE event will take place on the 4th weekend in February23, our photographer will be there again – don’t miss to follow David Kaiser , event homepage THE ICE St.Moritz
