Spinning on Ice

The "Ice Dance" is a driving experience unlike anything on dirt or paved surfaces.  Those unfamiliar with slippery roads may react intuitively and attempt to regain control by turning the wheel to avoid skidding or slamming on the breaks. 

 

David and his Audi Club, GruppeQ, teach the physics of bad weather driving by demonstrating safety techniques including maneuvering in the snow and recovery tactics to establish traction.  They have taught thousands of drivers to prepare in precarious situations due to adverse winter conditions.

 

They also have learned to have fun on the ice.  Congregating every January in Steamboat Springs, the team of "ice drivers" practices their techniques at the Bridgestone Winter Driving School.
