    Awesome idea. That Daytona Gr4 is the real deal or a conversion? Looks like a conversion.

    It is a conversion but the right toy for ice.

    Indeed. Right toy for a lot of fun! Was it for sale at Bingo Motorsport? It looks like one of the 2 conversions they have/had.

    Based on their previous experiences I’d love to see 0408MD or 0568M participate in these kinds of activities.
    Any “action” shots, especially of that yellow Scaglietti spyder ?

    Thanks.
    Too bad the Scaglietti spyder didn't make "the cut".
    My favorites were the old GP Bug & the Stratos.

    it looks as if some cars drip oil, because for many, not all, a "carpet" is located under the engine

    not legal anymore

    sad not to see the stratos a little in action :(

    There was a part on the Stratos in the middle. I was at another event during the week end 200km from there and returned to St Moritz only on Sunday. May be next year if dates do not collide. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I think the Miura had studded tires. The F40 at some point had chains from what i saw. The F50 has straight pipes...

    Delta S4.....is there really anything else that can match it on ice and snow? No, not really. :)

    Ferrari on ice, not really a good choice.

    A good track, is the best and hear the sound like symphony.

    I like V8 but a V12 is another thing, specially on Supercars.
    I love good roads, sea coast, always outside the agglomerations.

    Ferrari FF is a proper choice for those conditions, but most any other Ferrari on ice/snow is silly IMHO. However, a great gathering of cars and people. Definitely need to go....someday.
