The lack of auto racing tracks in the Russian North doesn't seem to bother Aleshin one bit, who's racing on ice above the Arctic Circle to prepare for the INDYCAR racing series starting next month in Florida.
Aleshin drove his race car on frozen Lake Lovozero in the Murmansk Region, making it the first sprint of a race car above the Arctic Circle.
Aleshin's race car was modified for the specifics of racing in the extreme conditions of the Arctic.
Извините за отсутствие постов сегодня — слабый интернет в Мурманской области 🙃 Делали очень крутой спецпроект с #AdrenalineRush:) Все подробности будут вначале марта, больше пока сказать не могу 😉 —- It was extremely cool day with #AdrenalineRush team 😎 —- #ПолярнаяФормула #PolarFormula #AdrenalineRush #Мончегорск #Мурманск
You probably shouldn't try to repeat Aleshin's record driving on the ice at over 200 km/h, considering he's a long-time professional racing driver who won the Formula Renault 3.5 Series championship in 2010.
