Engines are normally roaring at the beginning of the year in Zell am See: tens of thousands of fans descend upon Salzburg to cheer on historical as well as not-so-historical racing cars – driven by motorsport icons on a specially built ice course – at the GP Ice Race taking place only a few minutes away from the quiet town centre. This year is different so to speak. There are no spectators due to the coronavirus. However, the ice runway is there, enticing Jasmin Preisig and Benny Leuchter. The Golf R Winter Challenge awaits.
